Lotus CEO Dany Bahar has recently spilled a few hints that the legendary Lotus Seven is potentially poised for a comeback. Lotus lovers are abuzz with chatter about the company’s big future plans, and now it may be true that the Seven shall see another run…but will it be a success?

Lotus is being quite bold, with the new Esprit and next generation plans for pretty much all existing models in the funnel. The statement by Bahar that set the rumor-mill ablaze was during an interview with AutoEvolution, where he stated:
"I’ve seen some drawings (of the Seven revival) and they look very nice, we have to see. It’s always possible, it’s just a matter of timing." He continued by saying a new Seven would fit nicely in the new lineup of Lotus vehicles, igniting further hope for enthusiasts.
A slice of the Lotus legacy
The original Lotus Seven ran from 1957-1972 in the form of a diminutive, simple and easy-going 2-seater convertible. The situation could get sticky should Lotus opt to pursue a revival, as Caterham now owns the rights to the car, having purchased it after production ended….wah-wah-wah…
