I've had my 400 for a few months now, and I want to briefly share a couple of aspects of my ownership experience, so anyone thinking of buying an Evora who has come to TLF to do some research can find

I've remembered another Evora trait that I'm finding really amazing; it's bloody good fun even at 'sensible speeds'. One thing I found with my previous Boxsters, is that they only really came to life

Perhaps test drive a NA model to see if you don't mind the lower horsepower. It may irritate you after a 400. I bought my NA to test the water, imagining I would trade up to S or 400. 12 months on, no

Let's face it, all Evoras are great, not just the 400.

Phil, whereabouts are you in Exeter? We should meet up sometime, or do you go to any of the SW Lotus meets?

I just went out for a small blast. I had a smile on my face just accelerating in 2nd gear at 2500rpm within 1 minute of starting the car. I lifted off at 3200rpm, it was the pick up and noise that made me chuckle. 

I splashed about on a bumpy B-road for 20 minutes, I did not get over 65mph and never found 4th gear but still had the best of times. I can do all this in an Elise of course but the Evora lets me do this and an easy 500 miles in a day or easy in poor weather or easy on the commute or...……..the list goes on.

I have just completed a 200 miles round trip to North London from Leicestershire this evening 

pouring rain and 40mph gusts on M1 and I managed 39.8 mpg 

not a fuss from my 2010 NA my back is fine , my daughter sat in back plugged into her iPod and we had radio / satnav all happy passengers 

only annoyance was tail gating lorry drivers who had great fun it seems at going 55 in the roadworks

Russ spot on the suspension is softer, the recaro seats are much more comfortable, than the 400.
