The 1989 Esprit was improved again with GM multi-port , electronic fuel injection and the addition of a new water to air intercooler which Lotus called the Chargecooler.   This raised performance to 264 hp with 280 available on overboost.   The 1989 cars had a 0-60 time of 47 seconds with a stop speed raised to 160 mph.

Owned by an Australian who worked in Rhodesia and owned the wreck. He went back to Australia and had to leave the car but he was able to salvage usable parts like a pair of Dino Leather Seats.

Dino rear window 2

This a Dino 246/206 Rear Glass (reproduction)

Owner states this is from the Brandoli located in Modena, Italy. They are known for having many hard to find parts for Dinos. I have used Brandoli for other items and have been satisfied with the quality. I have purchased headlight covers for the Dino that has the correct curve, unlike so many other vendors. This is not an OEM product but it is being offered by the seller for $2,900.  I dont know if this is a good deal but finding an OEM window is getting scarce.   If you are in need of a rear window, I would suggest calling every vendor first to see if anyone has one stashed away.   Only then would I contact vendors in Europe like Brandoli, in Italy.
