Simply not possible in an Esprit. The Evora is without doubt the most practical family car I can think of.

Great write up. Interesting to read and I agree with most of your points in the 'Impressions list'

I too have had my 2015 Evora for 7 months coincidently. Not done as many miles, but I do use it on a regular basis.

Same as you, I am surprised how easy the 3 of us can fit in the car, (Wife and 5 year old son) no problems at all, and he loves being near the engine and near me on car journeys.

I too would like the seating position to be slightly lower.

I have friends who have Porches and they are amazed at the interior quality and the build quality, even the way the door shuts nicely with a nice sound.

I have a IPS and the gear change is very good, and the blips on the down gear is great.

Happy driving, hope we get lots of dry days over the winter!

It's the little things I've noted since buying the car.

  • The quality of the stitching is incredible - so precise and accurate. To think it's been done by hand!
  • The vanity light in the door which lights up when you open it.
  • When you open the boot lid in the rain and it disperses without flooding the boot
  • The pool of water which gathers in the doors = wet trousers!
  • The fact the indicator stalks seem to be miles away from where you need them (I wonder if this to accommodate IPS?)
  • The Becker points :)
  • The half length sun visors

All part of the Lotus experience!!

Crawl mode is back - dammit. Hoping I don't need to get the wiring harness replaced 😕

Sound advice


Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!

FWIW, I occasionally have a check engine light from the ETM that goes away if I clean both sides of the the connector with contact cleaner.  I assume this is caused by oxidation of the (non gold) pins.

Great write up and its good you have had great service from Leven its a key to any ownership no matter what the marque.

As for electrical connectors, Stabilant 22 this stuff is an aviation recommended product it actually promotes conductivity... it would want to its B expensive
