I've been catching up on this thread and will continue to follow, I'm currently advertising my TVR Griffith 500 (let me know if you know anyone who might be interested!) once sold I'll be in the market for an approx £30k NA Evora. I ended up using the TVR less than expected as I struggled to justify the fuel economy of the old 5ltr V8 and the handling wasn't quite as precise as I'd like, I previously had a Westfield for 5 years that went around corners on rails unless you pressed the loud pedal so a bit of a contrast. I know a 10 year old Evora won't compete with efficiency focussed modern cars but should be significantly better than the TVR (20mpg on a motorway run and 10ish around town or pushing), I have taken an Evora S for a test drive so I know it ticks my handling box, a couple of Elises in the family so I knew I could rely on Lotus for that! Since the TVR I'm with the group that enjoy pushing the car and the S felt a little fast for public roads, so I'd be happy with the NA, straight line speed doesn't matter to me too much.
There are a couple on the market that interest me so I'm hoping the TVR sells in the next couple of weeks and then I'll have the cash in my pocket ready to go!
