  1. @jep you are absolutely right on pointing out how difficult a proper 2+2 midengined car is to design - tastes are different but I think a F Mondial is an example how proportions might not be in the end of a car design process. I think there is just the F 308 GT4 and the Lambo uracco as proper styled 2+2 midengined cars (the R Alpine 310 has the engine in the back) Also interesting in the design context is to me that the new T50 of Gordon Murray has a more or less "simple" desing, meaning not that much agressive lines (esp compared to other super or hyper cars or whatever they are called
  2. time will show that esp the first design of the Evora with her "smooth non agressive" lines by Russell Carr was a great shot ............(although a lot of complaints about the "not agressive" lines....)
  3. @RDwyer the width of the front tires has "not much" to do with it. Our "family car" Golf VII R has the exact same tire size on the front as my Evora (235/19) and the steering resistance is much lower (although it has the more direct steering system than a normal Golf has). Its a matter of how much servo assistance the steering system itself has. As said before the steering of the Evora is a absolute delight for a sports car. Happy searching!!!!
  4. @JimH "Model year changes up to and including MY2012 added." Great you have added this, I have added some more detailed info on the seat colors / 4 packs available (wonder if there was a car with a ash grey leather int. ever.......)
  5. If this were a Lotus Evora s3 I would be more positive than seeing the Russell Carr design reinterpreted by Maserati (with the rear / taillights of the Renault Alpine in a way...). Ok, far better than their SUV in my eyes but not enough “own” ideas....
  6. indeed, sad day, further proof that F1 is another step faaaaaar beyond the "old times" that (for me, personal taste of course) stand for suspense and "real" racing............(not for pseudo political correct "behaviour" and cars driving around as some sort of a advertising campaign....)
  7. Massive congrats - you will enjoy!!! (If you see a light blue Evora in Regensburg with Munich plates that will be me, sometimes on client visits in R......)
  8. @Bibs many thanks, highly appreciated, but the issue was solved in the meantime by the local Lotus service point (with a lot of hassle for them and me but solved in the end ...) I wanted to stress the fact that not answering is not a good idea at all, esp if there is a customer who bought his car in the more "deeper" times of 2012 (production shutdown) and always has been in good faith relating Lotus as a company
  9. .....I would like to see a vid containing an influencer writing to lotus customer services ........as my last experience was to get just "no" response (ok, the auto reply @@@@@@@@@@@@@q Dear Customer, Thank you for contacting Lotus Cars Customer Services. Your inquiry is important to us and we endeavour to respond within 2 working days. We are working under the Covid-19 Government advice so there may be further delay in our response. Please note that our normal operating hours are as follows: Monday 0800-1700 GM
  10. Maybe silly question but: Is anyone of the opinion that someone buys a porsche or a Lotus (or an even more expensive car) because a "vlogger" supports a car? (maybe I am too old for this time?) It might be another thing if you are interested in a car and - as addition - watch a vid with car testing content (same in a way as you read a car mag test) but a "the car is so loud, so great, so exclusive"....blah blah vid shouls not be relevant for buying a car
  11. Does anybody know if the COP contains more information than before ?
  12. @NedaSay these are the ingredients G Murray wanted to avoid — he defined the t50 as a GT not a track car
  13. The energy and devotion to the car and esp his enthusiam remind me in a way of Roger Becker explaining the idea / concept behind the Evora (total different cars but you get what I mean ...)
