I'm not sure why an "Evora Picture and Video Thread'" is discussing those boring old 'pumped up VW Beetles' but I'll just add that my business partner has a Porsche registered as a "911 Carrera" but he always refers to it as a '993'.

"It's a classic, the last air-cooled made, state of the art in 1994" " he tells me ..   but cross-country, no quicker than my M100 Elan.  As Consultant Power Engineers we can need to go off-road so I use a Subaru Forester, he has a VW Tiguan.

Attending meetings or going to an office I will use a Lotus, he'll use the Tiguan.  Porsche 911 Carrera  -  he's done 1,703 miles in the last 12 years. Wow, that must be such an exciting car to drive !

Erm, maybe because the last posted video compared an Evora to the latest 911...?

Some great footage in this Chinese review of the GT410 Sport. Honestly the best production values I’ve seen on a Youtube review. Might help if you speak Mandarin. The track drone footage is fantastic. That said, they stole (?) footage from @The Pits GT430 YouTube video (16:15 in). You do you, China. 😂 To their credit, they credit him. 🤷‍♂️

The rights to Lotus brand does not belong to Lotus in China but to an obscure company from Singaore, also Back in the mid 2000 Proton got into bed with Youngman, this company registered the brand for themselves... I heard that the Geely lawyers are in negotiation with Youngman to get the moniker back.

Harry’s Garage is due to publish a video on the GT410 Sport this week. Think he liked it from his comments on Instagram. Looking forward to it as I think he’s one of the best on YouTube, should be a good review.

Edit to add: just seen there is already a thread on this! Doh.

@Evora 400 that is Sir, a stunning looking, car.

  • Thanks 1

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!

In addition, I would like to say that I'm not a Porsche hater

This might seem controversial, but my favourite Lotus F1 livery was the single season (1980?) Martini sponsorship, but that was on a metallic BRG base colour, so the above looks wrong to me. Has anyone ever done a homage to that livery on a road car Lotus? I think it would look better than Gold Leaf colours on a modern car.

Mine was the black & gold of JPS era  because it looks so smart and the 78 & 79 were such brilliant cars.

Cracking wee run earlier today. The brakes were starting to voice their disapproval coming down the Dukes pass though.

Exige has just had 2bular manifolds & sports cat added - to complement the 2bular back box he fitted last year. Sounds great.

New satin finish on the wheels looked great - particularly in-motion with the sun lighting up the sides of the spokes.

Sorry about the insect - stubble.
