Lotus Fielding Inquiries From Other Companies Interested In Using Evora Chassis

Lotus Engineering has had inquiries from other manufacturers interested in using the Evora platform for their own applications.  The use of other companies utilizing a Lotus chassis is not without precedent, as the Tesla roadster and Vauxhall VX220 were both based off the Lotus Elise.

The Evora is a good candidate for a small volume sports car maker, as it can fit a V6 engine in its compact dimensions, and can be configured as a 2-seater or 2+2, with a double wishbone suspension and aluminum construction. The chassis has also gone through the necessary crash test requirements, significantly reducing development costs.
