Arnie Johnson profile

Arnie Johnson’s family will be attending LOG 41 at Canaan Valley. The family will be there Friday, 9 September 2022 and Saturday, 10 September 2022 and be available for a meet and greet. We want to present the family an album of stories about Arnie, short tributes, anecdotes and need your help. Whether you are coming to LOG or not, we are asking for written stories, short or long.

Stories we always love to share, but if you have limited time, a short, concise paragraph or two about Arnie that you think the family would enjoy, please take a few minutes to jot your thoughts and send. We are also accepting Arnie-related photos to share. Please send them to our Lotus Ltd. email address: info@lotusltd.com.

Recognizing the Elise’s sales potential, Lotus USA CEO Arnie Johnson hatched a plan, Road & Track explains. He bought a Toyota Celica GT-S on the company’s dime and shipped it over to its UK HQ. Why the Celica? Besides being US-legal, its 1.8-liter four-cylinder made more power from the same displacement as the old Rover K-Series engine. Someone at Lotus HQ got the memo. And Lotus has used Toyota engines ever since.

- Matthew Skwarczek, MotorBiscuit

 For decades, Arnie WAS Lotus in N America. There's a strong argument that could be made that Lotus would have been gone from the NA (North American) market had it not been for Arnie. There's no doubt that without Arnie and Roger Becker there would be no Elise/Exige in the States.
