Lotus will overhaul its current range with heavily revised versions of the Exige and Evora

Lotus is planning a string of changes to existing models, including a new Exige and a heavily revised Evora, before its range overhaul begins with the Esprit.

Lotus CEO Dany Bahar hinted that there could be a new Exige model at the Geneva show in March.

Company insiders have admitted that the Evora will get a refresh in 2012, including a completely redesigned cabin, with the aim of boosting quality and functionality. More variants beyond the recently launched supercharged Evora S are also expected.

Lotus is outsourcing the engineering of future cabins to German firm CSI, which engineered the cabins of the Audi R8, Merc SLS and Porsche Panamera.

The firm has also revealed plans to Autocar to power the new Esprit with an all-new Hethel-engineered V8 and the Elan and other models with a new V6.Read the full story on Lotus's engine plans
