  1. Been a while, time for some updates! I've had the car almost exactly ten months and 12,504 miles as of last night. Lets just say I took the advice that we were able to drive as far as we wanted to heart, and have been out around Sussex, Surrey and Hampshire a lot. Some thoughts on the last few thousand miles. Firstly, while I am very aware that I have a large amount of free time compared to most, I understand people that don't drive their sports cars much even less than I did when I first bought the car. The car has come alive since about seven or eight thousand miles, and I have c
  2. 800 miles in two years! Damn, that's a shame. I don't know what the thinking in the community is about this, but it's possible that Evora values will take a further hit when the replacement is released. Possibly worth selling now, and then if in a couple of years you really, really miss it you can buy another for much less money? That said, it could end up like the 997 GT3 or the 458, where values of the older car actually get a bit stronger.
  3. Really sorry, I totally forgot. I fired off an email to the wheel people just a minute ago! In the mean time, another pic. I went shopping, and when passing Ham Common I spotted a quick photo op with a fren An Evora Finds a Fren: A Short Story. by Alex D, on Flickr
  4. That is a fair point. Red with gold wheels was my first choice, but after looking at the reds that were either available or that Lotus would do, I decided against it. Preferred the green in the end. Damn it would be a good looking car though.
  5. It would look absolutely bloody glorious! I'll have a dig around and see if I can find the paint code, if not I'll call the shop tomorrow and see if anyone answers.
  6. I think they're a Ferrari Scuderia shade, if you'd like I can try and find the original details?
  7. Fair point about the smaller sills. That's why I suggested more of a speedster, you wouldn't have the bother of trying to make a roof, it would be roofless all the time. Anyway, I don't have the money or desire to comission one and nowhere close to the skills (or again, money) needed to try and make one myself. I still think it'd be cool as hell though, that concept looks amazing.
  8. Thank you! It's almost never this clean, it's nice to look out the window and see it like that. Wish I could drive it though.
  9. I wonder if you could get something that looked like the concept through an IVA? Yes, it would cost too much to build and not be 'worth' it, but damn what a glorious looking car to have as a one off. You could make it speedster style with a slightly cut down windscreen and all.
  10. It makes a lot of sense to have a 'face' and it makes even more sense to base that face on the Evija. Maybe that render isn't a million miles off, Autocar have to get it right one day with their endless attempts  Anyway, have a shot of a car at rest. 9,800 in seven months, very sad I didn't manage to crack 10k in six, but oh well. If the travel restrictions are relaxed in time for summer I can easily see 20,000 miles being clocked up in 12 months. Evora at Home by Alex D, on Flickr
  11. Are we talking about Racing Green Lotus'? Here's the most recent one of it being clean, at Caffeine & Machine. 8,300 miles in five months means it's rarely clean!
  12. I had no idea they existed until I stumbled upon them a week or so ago. I would have loved one if I had known, but none are IPS it seems. Still, that green one is gorgeous to my eyes, I have always loved the GTE widebody shape.

  14. But what would having a place to rest your elbows on long journeys, nicer buttons to press and indicator stalks that didn't feel like they were made out of 50p plastic do to take away from the purity of the experience? In my view, that comes from the engine, brakes, chassis balance, throttle response and so on, wouldn't you say? I don't have the car as my daily, but I have done 5,000 miles in it since August and yes, I like to drive it on long boring trips as well as on more exciting roads. I believe Lotus have positioned the car as a GT with a relatively quiet cabin, good luggage space
