Hooker with a Penis: As long as they make a lotus SUV for suckers to buy they will do fine.

They're getting into VW/Audi/Porsche's game 10 years late, they'll re-skin two they already build and charge an extra $30,000 for them.

Improved facilities would be a necessity for the low-volume automaker to accommodate an expansion to its model range, which it hopes to model on Porsche's with its highly-profitable Cayenne and Macan crossovers. Lotus's own crossover is expected in 2022 and could dip into Volvo's parts bin (Geely also owns Volvo) for ease of construction and cost savings.

Translation: They'll have different badges.
