The outgoing L5. The L5, old and new, is based on the Malaysian Proton Gen2 and assembled in China by Youngman for the Chinese market. Youngman uses the Lotus-name because Proton is also the owner of the iconic British sportscarmaker.  Youngman also claims that Lotus Engineering helped with the ‘development’ of the L5.
