  2. I imgaine you folks will have a chance to drive the Evora 400 before I will. If you have a chance to drive the IPS, could you please check to see if the software still prevents a down shift to first gear when over 20 mph.
  3. Actually, driving position/comfort is an issue I've had with the Evora 6 speed and being only 5'5". I also had the seat to far forward to get the clutch pedal down. It was a factor that made me trade my 6 speed S for an IPS S. I'm so much more comfortable now.
  4. Wait and see what Lotus will show in Geneva before making a decision.
  5. Matt Becker is still employed with Lotus, right? Just want to make sure.
  6. Lotus needs to handle their PR a little better: http://blog.caranddriver.com/going-going-lotus-to-drop-evora-from-u-s-market/ If potential U.S. buyers hear Lotus is essentially pulling out of the U.S. market in September 2014, it just reinforces the stereotype that Lotus is unstable. I read this blog as Lotus skipping the 2015 model year to focus on whatever they'll debut in Geneva. It makes no sense to spend money for a single model year. However, that general public (or more importantly potential customers) don't know that.
  7. I would have thought so too. Even though NDAs are in place, I would have thought Lotus would authorized certain information to be "leaked" to spur some interest and excitement in the brand.
  8. That's possible. I heard from someone that was there, that before the Evora was presented, the dealers were also called to Hethel as Lotus wanted their input as to whether it should be a coupe or covertible.
  9. Does it look like this: or this: or even this:
  10. Possible. I just can't see either U.S dealer owners going to Hethel just for a meeting and greet without some tangilble new or updated product in the immediate future.
  11. I read that owners of U.S. Lotus dealers will be heading to Hethel in September for a meeting. Might the "announcement" be made then?
  12. Well, it's April. Any news?
  13. There's also a new CAI from the U.S. Distributor of the Kold Fire tune, BOE. Here's a link to the thread. It's a bit long but this link takes you to where it became available for sale: http://www.lotustalk.com/forums/f170/boe-evora-cai-123964/index9.html
