    How come Lotus Cars gets no love from kit car manufacturers?

    they got some nice ones like the evora, while not exactly over exotic, cn still turn a few heads..
    the exige/elan which possibly can be made out of the 3rd gen MR2 is quite a possibility.
    and the newer ones are commin out too the 2013 Elan and the Eterne.

    I could ask the same question about the McLaren Mp4-12c, Koenigsegg. I have no clue as to the answer though.

    price? I mean the Eterne is expected to be around $55k.... You would excede that trying to build a decent replica... If wanted one that bad would just buy the lotus before I would build a replica for $50k or even $40k

    I love those cars.
    If you're not confused, you're not paying attention.

    You may have seen my photoshop on the Lotus forums original poster and if you're passionate about the Evora design, its possible to make it your self since new car kits are rarely made.
    Details in the link below.

    I want to make a fake Lotus - Page 2 - LotusTalk - The Lotus Cars Community

    I was thinking about doing something similar for Fieros.

    Thanks, one of my early concepts was kind of like the Elise styling... started a big kit thread on the Lotus forms and have been lurking ever since.
