There should be plenty of turbocharged I4/DCT cars out there for the next 5-10 years, including the Emira, and I think once the V6 Emira is gone a lot of I4 buyers will regret not opting for it when they had the chance.
I agree with this. Lotus production numbers are about 4800 units /yr. Bearing in mind this is going to be a global car and China is going to be a new market for Lotus, I think the Emira will sell out plenty quick. All 10 units allocated to my country were snapped up on pre-order within 24 hours.
