  1. WHAT?! No final edition for the Evora?? pfffffff......... And you cannot even order a new one anymore?? That was fast... So ok, no new Empire Green Evora with Ohlins for me then. Kind of sad, but I save the money than and enjoy driving my even more exclusive Evora S, 2012! But I hope, Lotus don't make me buy a Cayman.. 131 must be a winner!
  2. Nice pictures.. but don't forget they are meant for driving.. (whenever the lockdown allows)
  3. Like your ideas with the 330bhp (S1 reloaded version)! "Evora 330 T" sensible priced ;-) If Lotus brings the Evora "just" with some different color, a little bit more power and fancy LCD with higher price I would not be tempted to buy. I would then upgrade my Evora to DAB and maybe Öhlins..(expensive though..) an be happy ;-) But I hope they give the Evora the Final Editions it deserves ;-)
  4. What would be your Final Editon Evora? I like a two version approach, Sport and Touring: Evora 420 Touring: Adjustable Öhlins, Recaro seats, All creature comforts (DAB, NAVi, Soundsystem, Apple Car Play, Smart phone induction, Sound insulation etc), Trunk heat isolation for better use. Auto and manual. Colours: Empire Green metalic, Essex Blue metalic, Fire Red, Black, Azure Blue etc.. Evora 450 Sport: Adjustable Öhlins, lightweight max power, carbon fiber everywhere. Only Manual. Rear Wing etc.. Colours: Liquid Yellow, Motorsport Green etc.
  5. Sunday drive in the Swiss Alps..
  6. I have moved on form the Yokohama (which where ok) to the Goodyear Ultra Grip Performance. Not driven in snow or ice yet, but in the wet and cold dry weather. Better than the Yokos here. Will report again when the winter comes. I drive all year.
  7. Just saw this: https://www.carmagazine.co.uk/car-reviews/comparison/2020/porsche-718-cayman-gts-40-vs-bmw-m2-cs-vs-lotus-evora-gt410-vs-alpine-a110-s-review/ As these are basically the cars I am looking at, if I ever replace my Evora S of 2012, I was very interested. It's good review! My personal opinion: The ranking is a bit random, but the if one reads the text it becomes clear that the Evora is still the choice if you want the best drivers car.I was tempted like many by the GTS 4.0, but the Evora is just more sexy, better brake and steering feel, smoother ride, proper sound..
  8. What was the name of that car again.... brrrr 🧐 Ok now
  9. link did not work as intended.., here we go
  10. Some eye candy.. https://www.smugmug.com/gallery/n-TqTw6W/
  11. The password can only be entered when the handbrake is applied... try 1111_ or 2222_ , the _ is a space. Worked with mine ;-)
  12. As I'm not on social media (facebook, insta, etc), I have re-organised my lotus pictures here: Lotus Evora S Enjoy! 😉
  13. I love my S1 for its sport touring capabilities and real road driving fun. Can easily take a mid-sized suitcase in the rear, and still has a boot for duffelbags etc.. but drives like no limo, hot hatch etc. can.. If I had to replace it today, I checked the follwing cars: Alpine A110: not enough place inside, no boot, fund drive, but not better than S1 suspension/steering/braking wise 718 GTS 4.0: What a move from Porsche to bring back a sweet 6er.. will test drive one, but again not enough place inside. Must drive heavenly to convice me to switch. Evora 410/430sport: Certainly
  14. Here in Switzerland I'm used to drive my Evora S on snow (not that we have much these days..) with winter tyres. (Yokohama W.drive V-902 on 18/19 ) No problem whatsoever.. ;-)
  15. I went from a Esprit SE to a Evora S. Love the look of the Esprit and always will. But driving wise, the Evora is just much more fun! Brakes, Suspension, Steering etc. all in a different league... The Esprit was quite comfy and had enough room for two/week. The Evora is even better in that area. And he! The look of the Evora will grow on you.. 😉
