It’s no secret Lotus has a new sports car coming, but for faithful fans of the British brand, it may mean the end of the carmaker’s three vehicles currently on sale. According to a new report from Automotive News Europe, the new sports car will arrive this summer and may serve as a replacement for the Evora, Elise and Exige.

Each car is mighty old by the industry’s lifecycle standards, and with Lotus now under management from Geely, the brand finally has the finances to make some big moves. The new sports car will be the first from Lotus as it readies the Evija electric supercar and potentially an SUV.
