But, if you’re expecting a modern-day incarnation of the delightful Elan roadster, you may be disappointed. Lane says that these new models will be based upon old drawings and designs that “never saw the light of day.” While there’s reportedly very little technical detail, LAP’s big boss sees this as an opportunity. “It gives us a little bit of free license.”
In terms of design, we can expect to see reimagined sports and concept cars from the 1960s reinterpreted for the 21st century. “A number of these drawings were done [in the ’60s]. But we can reinterpret them and use modern materials, suspension, and brakes.” If you’re wondering whether these exciting creations will run on electricity, fear not.
Lane has said LAP is “reserving the right to still play with combustion engines”. We’re not entirely sure what to expect, but we anticipate the Emira’s four-cylinder and V6 engine options may be utilized.
