I am on my second Evora 400 and have test driven an Alfa Q prior to buying my first one. Here goes my 2 cents:
Ferrari "derived" engine. Sounds very good on the pipe.
Interior was nice, much more upscale than the Evora.
Looks sporty, for a 4 door anyway.
4 door cars overstay their welcome with me. I get tired of them quickly and then it becomes "meh"
I have never owned an alfa so I can't speak with authority on parts and dealer competence, but I would be very surprised if its good. Alfa is still a low volume / not an adult professional shop in many ways.
The Evora is in a market segment all its own. The only true exotic you can get for $80 grand. Only 300-325 cars are sold annually in the US, making it the lowest volume production car south of Zondas and the like. IT still baffles me how Lotus stays in business with such low volumes.
Very pretty coachwork. It is one of the most striking and pretty cars you will see on the roads. Actually, scratch that. You will never see one on the road other than the one you drive.
Other than my E46 M3, its the most communicative steering I have ever felt. Thanks to what the British are really good at, the suspension setup is awesome - sporty yet perfectly passable for everyday comfort. I remember my W204 C63 being so much harsher and that's a 4 door Mercedes.
The low volume stuff will really grate you when you need parts. The factory is amateur happy hours all the time. The company is so home made they get order sheets wrong on brand new $120k cars regularly. The reason I am on my second was because my first turned out to be an utter and complete piece of shit. To the point that my dealer was so embarrassed by the lack of support from Lotus that he bought it back from me.
I bought my second Evora fully prepared to go it on my own with an independent shop in town that works on racing Lotuses. I have zero faith in the manufacturer warranty and consider it absolutely worthless.
The US cars all have heated seats, but that's about it. Everything else is stripped down. Sparcos are a really bad, panel gaps are poor and overall, you get the feeling every time you get in it that its a home made kit car.
Ultimately, there isn't anything remotely close to the price range of the Evora that's a true exotic. You will turn heads everywhere. And its special to know you are driving one of 300 cars sold that year. There are faster (My F-Type R, nearly every AMG I have owned were all so much faster and nicer than the Lotus) and nicer made cars out there for the money, but Lotus's rarity makes it a cool car to own.
