Report: Lotus planning range of updates to Evora, Exige

Lotus Evora S

Just because Lotus is planning a slew of new supercars that will allow it to compete with the likes of Ferrari, Lamborghini and Aston Martin vehicles, it doesn’t mean that the British automaker is ditching its current lineup. According to AutoCar, Lotus is planning a range of updates to existing models including the Exige and the Evora before it reveals the new Esprit.

CEO Dany Bahar has hinted that a new Exige model could debut at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show in March.

Sources say that the Evora will get a refresh sometime in 2012 and could also get new variants besides the recently launched Evora S.

Lotus is going to outsource some it engineering to German company CSI, which has engineered the cabins of the Audi R8, Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG and the Porsche Panamera. We guess the guys at Lotus Engineering are to busy working on the 6 upcoming supercars, which were revealed at the 2010 Paris Motor Show.
