Interesting idea but doesn't even inspire mild lust. I read an article by a guy who drove one from Texas to Louisiana to I believe Georgia. He was with a friend.
My primary memory of that article was repeated complaints about range and creature comfort.
Apparently, they were filling the thing every couple of hours and it was seriously uncomfortable for extended driving.
It's a 3'rd car for weekends close to home. 15 minute rides.
As for the styling, IMHO it's got Japanese styling to go with the Toyota engine.
But that weight, that weight! Lotus stuck to a plan. Gotta admire the purity of the design.
They certainly demonstrated there's more than one way to make a performance car.
