regular edition looks a proper poverty spec, although £77,664 for LE black pack is quite a hike over £60K base, unless part of that hike is a premium for the camry engine  

If the i4 LE comes in around £70K I will be very happy

Represents good value when you look at the spec, FE cars are fully loaded, very few cost options to add. Impressed things like forged diamond cut wheels are not extra also that all paints are the same price. Seneca blue must cost more than solid yellow! Don’t get why black pack should be £1200 but most colours look better without it anyway. I wouldn’t bother with any of the cost options personally. Would have liked to see some carbon and other ways to add some lightness but I guess that is to come.

That's a good price point and a good package for the V6 FE. Very nice.

Slightly disappointed to see it is being marketed at 400bhp and a 4.3s time for 0-60. So it's slightly less powerful, slightly slower, and a helluver lot less carbon than my current Evora.

Hmmm. It looks great, but I've never needed to be the first or have the latest, so I am honestly sat on the shelf. Cost to change for me will be around £25-30k and I'm really struggling to justify that. I could spend £10k on the KT460 pack, and the GT430 Ohlins and I'd have a rocketship performance wise and a very exclusive car at that.

I'm booked in to Parks (Lotus Hamilton) to see the car in October, I don't think I'll be in a position to decide anything until then, but it is by no means an assured "shoe-in" for me.

My next car, unfortunately, might NOT be a Lotus!  Nothing against the Emira. As I said above, great package, great price but I'm just not right now salivating with anticipation, probably because my Evora is so good! :)

 

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

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

Weren't we expecting 416hp as stated by Matt Windle at Goodwood? I wonder if the engine is now tuned for a broader spread of torque. How does the Emira's 420Nm compare to the Evora 410?

And yes, Evora 410 + Komotec and Ohlins would be a keeper for sure.

Fantastic price well done to the deposit holders you have bagged yourself a junior super car at a bargain price.

So 410 is 410hp and 416ps (maybe this is what Matt was referring to) - so have they put the 400 engine tune in, not the 410 tune (unless I'm confusing myself). But then the 410 was 420nm of torque which is what is quoted for the Emira.  It's all a bit of a muddle but then I was never the sharpest nail in the packet.

Was also surprised the top speed of the Emira was 180mph, compared to 190mph for the 410 Sport.  Not that I'll ever get to that speed - but I'd have thought the Emira would have been more aerodynamic but maybe they have focused on downforce to aid real driving performance on road and track and sacrificed some slipperiness. That would make perfect sense to me as not many people get to 180mph even on a track - probably only ever on the Autobahn.....

Yes and no - in looks yes, but in go, no.  Again, not trying to piss on the Emira Parade or on Lotus. The Emira looks great, but it just needs a bit more go for me as the V6. The figures are just a tad underwhelming - but then I am sure the drive will be superb. You can see the from my responses how the top of the fence is ripping holes in my butt! :)

That makes sense, thanks. Not that anyone is likely to notice much difference between 400 and 410hp. On the couple of occasions I have driven a 410 I was too busy grinning like an idiot at the fantastic noise to care about the exact power output 🙂

That happens to me EVERY time I drive my 410 - I think other drivers think I've just escaped from the local lunatic asylum - think The Joker driving a lotus!

I suspect output is 400 rather than 410 or more due to emissions necessities and getting the CO output down. And possibly to leave more room for fancier models down the line if 430 is all they can economically get out of that setup.

Seems like there are a few things people are not happy about but overall this looks AMAZING.

I understand people wanting only a few options on the base spec and it is a shame that it not available at the same time (why not?) but the FE spec looks damn good to me.

The price is great. Starting to think two V6 cars is now the way to go  - ha.

 

If it has an engine, I am there to thrash it.

A year old 410sport owner here, is a a step above my current Evora? Having seen it in the flesh and had the pleasure to sit inside it i would say its a massive step in the right direction, will it be as fast as my Evora of course it will be  and it will probably handle better thats what lotus do best, as a ground up the new car its going to the best in its class by a country mile and make the Cayman a thing of the past. Sadly I don’t know where it leaves the used values of Evora 410s probably not in a good place when the Emira is coming in at this price point.

of 11 used Cayman GTS on autotrader, only 3 are less than £75k.  Porsche options are expensive.  A base price for a porsche is somewhat irrelevant

 

.

Spot on. I configured a Cayman GTS a few weeks back and my build was £76k, without the fancy stereo. Pricing is pretty close between the two.

Expect to see lots of head to heads between these two when Lotus release cars to the press. It’ll have to be bloody good to justify that £10k difference over a Porsche!

 

Is that right, even in a similar spec?

I think I will take a Cayman GTS out - if only so I know.. or maybe I shouldn't.. in case it really is great. Ha.

No question the latest Cayman GTS is a great sports car, but my goodness it looks dull as ditchwater compared to the Emira.

100% in agreement and Porsche will know this. They also know that they will always outsell the Emira but this still gives Porsche prospects a headache.

I'd 'hope' the UK motoring press hail the Emira as the best car by some mile and announce it to be the best car ever made but it never seems to go that way. It might be 5 months or more before anyone of note even drives the Emira. Mad world.
