a perfectly good garage and the poor Lotus is left

May be there is something more important in the garage---  the wife's car.

You might be able to drive it in ?   but not be able to get out of it!!!

As a slightly elderly individual I have the door fully open to get in/out, luckily my main garage has enough room to open both doors inside. At my last house I had a 5 car garage and another for 1 car plus some stuff.

I've noticed this on many Evora's now. I don't think this looks right - the tram line re the body ridge and the black sill.  Is this intentional from Lotus or is it poor factory alignment?

Initially, I thought poor alignment, but you can see it keeps a consistent gap between it and the shark fin protection above it, so it could well be intentional.  If if followed the crease, it would get so close as to leave a tiny slither of yellow between them which might not look nice when standing back and viewing the side of the car.  A bigger gap allows that pinched design to still be conveyed.

Hmm weird, mine is right against the line, but mine was not done in factory. I had black pack done at dealer and they painted roof, mirrors and added black wrap to the under door area.

Slightly different tack for a minute , found this photo in my archives (I've really run out of things to do in lock down) it would appear I've been thinking of Evora's for quite a while . This one's a bit different to standard even back in 2010 ... Anyone know anything ?

Trying to add performance with a bit of additional aero to make up for forgetting to tick the box for the sports pack ?

Scotty I don't think so , from memory it was with one of the race teams and not far from a Lotus "display" also the AU plates I think suggest a factory link ?

 

The display ...

Agree probably a factory car, but it is definitely missing the sports pack, unpainted callipers and none drilled discs.

I believe that's the factory front and rear bumpers from the GT4 sports car, part number ALS5B0157J. As such it will create some serious additional down force and more than make up for the sports pack "performance gains". It would maybe explain why it was around/being run by one of the factory teams.

Every time I see that photo I think my S1 is sitting higher than Toms. 

A Lotus is for driving, pork is for breakfast.

I reckon the NA (launch editions at least) do sit slightly higher, particularly at the back. Mine was higher than the S models, even with the same sized wheels fitted.

Designers love big wheels on cars and the S looks fab. But I do prefer the feel of the NA on the road with the skinnier rubber. 

All Evora fab!

The S can use the same skinnier tyres as the N/A, too. We are a few on here with two sets of wheels (18/19 and 19/20). We can also choose to go as wide in the rear as the 400, if need be. Choice is indeed good.
