I am quite fearful of a blissfully ignorant/optomistic Malaysian management and a hard-charging Maximum Bob going on a new-model blitz critically destabilizing one of my favorite once-British car companies.

For me their lineup should be a FR sportscar in the mold of the original Elan or Elite hovering below a ton (maybe with a 2+2 option), a mid-engined sportscar like the Elise with more of a track setup than the FR but in that weight range, and a mid-engined heavy "supercar" packing more heat that the others like the old Esprit.

Lotus should do Lotus-style cars, I would have thought that would be obvious to the powers that be.
