[quote=Mr Pesky][quote=Podger]

Lotus is NOT in the same league as Ferrari, Porsche, Lamborghini , different customer base
[/quote]

They're aiming to be though, particularly in the Far East, where today's/future real money is (sadly!). [/quote]

I think the point is made well by Lambo's latest offering...

The Urus is likely to cost from �150,000 with a sales target of 3,000 per year. With the Chinese market soaring that shouldn�t be a problem

Also, Lamborghini�s boss says that virtually all Lamborghini owners also own a top-end SUV like a Range Rover.

Lotus need to invest if they are to have a future and tap these new markets - but then I think DB already knew this...

It's a rebadged Audi Q7 at 3 times the price.

Badge engineering by any other name.

If you think that's a point , well made, in connection with Lotus , with your obvious MBA you should join their useless management ,& you'll find kindred spirits........

Then the loss next year will be [color:#FF0000] -[/color]25% Pre Tax Margin


God help the brand, they won't

SteveGreen wrote/ I would have thought with your claimed background you would have been familiar with the saying "no plan survives 1st contact"? Nevertheless, DB has done most of what he said he would do.

Not sure why you have an issue with this, but if you do try posting a cogent arguement rather than just snide side-swipes...


And then /

Your the poster that got personal! !!

I have posted nothing but cogent argument !! And figures to back that argument up.

And your original argument , plan ?? , NONE except to pick me up for typo's.


And you also posted this :


Steve Green wrote/:6 new cars in 5 years - and they can't even get the V6 Exige to market as planned...the most important thing for investors is to tell them what you are going to do, do it and then tell them you have done it.

The current management do not appear to be setting realistic targets and so who would invest into this?



You seem to make arguments against your own posts......... :whistle:

This sounds like Gaz on SELOC... is that who you are referring to here?
