[DML] Lotus Engineering.

(AUTHOR NOTE:  Can we adjust subject lines as needed
when replying?)

While I hate to give Claude any fuel for his argument,
The folks I heard speak at the DOC event last year at
Lotus were clear that the DeLorean design project was
a "side job".  They even went as far to say they only
worked on it when they knew someone from DMC was
coming to visit.

The Lotus people also indicated that if it were not
for the cash supplied by DMC, Lotus may have been out
of business.

I can't say that we were given any information to
indicate a deliberate effort to reduce the performance
of the DMC, but clearly it was not a priority for

And, I agree with Mike that many of the requirements
DMC had contribute to why the Lotus may be "better"
than the DMC.  On the other hand, if it were not for
those requirements, we would be driving silver
Esprits! (not saying that is a bad thing)
