Just an FYI: It was announced on the FB page that this Sunday, 6/7 is the official return of this event. It is held at the Susan Campbell Park area of the City Dock. People and cars start arriving as early as 7:30 and it goes until 12. The spaces are just the public parking area which is free until Noon. As with them all it is weather dependent. I am planning to be there around 8:30 until 9:45. A wide range of cars show up. Check the Facebook page for pictures from past Sundays.

Please welcome Axl to the community. My first child was born on 4/23/20 @ 4:57pm Inova Fairfax Hospital. He was born premature at 33 weeks and weighed just over 3lbs. He’s still in the NICU as of 6/1/20 but he’s doubled his body weight and he’s getting stronger every day. We can’t wait to bring him home and we can’t wait to bring him out to a meet. #axlstrong

Congratulations, Zakk.  Best wishes to Axl and his mom.  Hope he is home soon!  Start installing blocks on the Elise's pedals, so he can drive out to meet us!

Reborn Lotus Esprit spied testing for the first time
All-new sports car is expected to arrive with hybridised V6 and develop more power than the Evora

The spiritual successor to the Lotus Esprit, which will use a V6 powertrain and be priced above £100,000, has been spotted testing for the first time ahead of its 2021 debut.

Development prototypes of the upcoming Ferrari-baiting sports car have been seen close to Lotus's headquarters in Hethel, Norfolk, disguised by Evora bodyshells that have been widened to accommodate the modified chassis.

Although these early prototypes don't give any clues towards the new car's styling, it's widely expected to adopt the design language seen on the 1973bhp Evija electric hypercar.

Exclusively revealed by Autocar earlier this year, the reborn Esprit will be the first all-new Lotus production car for twelve years.

It's set to use a V6 powertrain sourced from Toyota, supplemented by a hybrid system developed in-house that could push power north of 500bhp. In that case, it would eclipse the 410bhp Evora GT410, although the car is expected to sit above it in the Lotus line-up rather than replace it outright.

The Esprit should have a mid-engine layout and a two-seat cabin instead of the 2+2 layout found in some Evora models.

The new car will be the last to use Lotus' extruded aluminium platform, ahead of an all-new design arriving alongside a greatly expanded model range that could include a reborn Elan to compete with the Porsche 718 Boxster.

It's currently unknown whether Lotus will choose to reuse the Esprit name or give the car an all-new title.

Lotus currently sells around 1500 cars per year but is in the process of expanding its Hethel base to enable it to build 5000. This is part of the British brand's five-year plan that will include the introduction of its first SUV, as well as the Evija and more mainstream sports cars, thanks to investment from new Chinese owner Geely.
