Founded in 1948 by race car enthusiast Anthony Chapman, Lotus is a British automaker specializing in high-performance, lightweight sports cars. The unibody fiberglass Lotus Elite put the automaker on the map in the 1950s, and in the 1960s, the Elan was the first commercially produced roadster. In 1974, the Elite morphed into a 4-seater passenger car, which directly competed with the Porsches and Ferrari's of the industry. After the company changed hands several times, it eventually landed with a Malaysian firm in 1996 and produced the Lotus Elise, which ended up being the company's comeback car. Today, Lotus only offers a few models at a time, which typically have lightweight frames, power, and superb handling that gives its drivers a connection with every turn in the road.
Lotus vehicles are available in two body styles - convertible and sedan. Lotus models are only available in rear wheel drive. Depending on what Lotus model you get, you can find features like air conditioning, adjustable steering wheel, Bluetooth connection, auxiliary input, keyless entry, and cruise control.
