There are several independent journalists at Goodwood for some kind of multi-marque testing event.  There's been a Shadow Grey Emira out on track as well as the Hethel Yellow one.  Several of the journalists have been posting pics on Instagram.  They're all embargoed until 7 June, so not long to wait now.

I am, I was being facetious as Carfection usually use Henry C for Lotus content.

The front boot gap, really does look bigger than it should be on every one I’ve seen so far. I’m hoping they fix this for the final production cars, but can’t help thinking it would’ve been sorted by now if it could be made better…….🤔

As all the other press drive reviews are embargoed until 7th June, it's possible Top Gear will get the exclusive and have it in the first episode on 5th.  TG Magazine and TG Online got first publication on the VP007 review.

For those prepared to recognise the name “Lotus” as now simply being that of a brand, and no more, the ethos that it used to represent having disappeared with the Elise, Exige and Evora, this will be a particularly interesting comparison.  For the first time for me, their pick of the car that they prefer will be as interesting and relevant as what they say about both of them, on a 50/50 basis.  A new challenge re future choices!

Brave effort, better in many ways, but we’d still take the Porsche.

I suspect you may be right LLLR

But I hope not 🤥

LLLR,  An Autocar comparison, not by EVO. Yes, the usual result in EVO I expect. (Wow! otherwise.)

But my point is that if the basis of the Autocar analysis and the weight given to the factors are creditable to me, then, if the Porsche wins, I no longer see any reason not to see it as the one to pick*.  Just two brands now. 

* When the time is right.

Great point and post.

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!

The internet won't be safe.

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.
