Rumors about that Ford wants Lotus and is willing to buy not only Lotus but its parent company too..or at least the 30% of it that the government will allow..

What would Ford want with lotus except to recreate some ford Lotus packages for its more mundane european line..

Ford recogonizes greatness...and amazingly enough Lotus has begun to really prosper...

Will Ford buy Lotus ..yes or no..and if so is it a good thing?

The present owners don't want to sell..so ford is in the process to buy them...or as much as their govt will allow..

Does Ford sound determined..?

What do you think of the little Lotus Elise (spelling?) Don't think its sold in US yet, but looks like a really cool little car.
