Where did you get that 3rd brake light?

 

I made the 3rd brake light since I couldn't find anything that would look right and I didn't want to mess up the wing...

Ouch! That's gonna smart! :popo:

 

How the hell did it get there?

 

Good time to check all those fiddly panel screws on the bottom though. Glass half full. That's me. (sometimes)

Still, one must recognize that even the underside of the Evora is pretty to look at. You won't find such clean lines on many cars. :rambo:

Ahh. Now I see. Thanks Simon. :)

 

Bit of second cut though and I reckon it'll buff out. :yes:

A friend popped this in back of a supermarket during a small car meet. There's something about it I like.

Then the cops rolled in...

COP 1: Who's Lotus is that?
ME: Mine.
COP 1: It came back as stolen.
ME: Really? That's a neat trick considering it doesn't have a front plate, it's backed against a wall so you can't see the back plate, and you haven't scanned the registration.
COP1: I'm just messing with you. I'm about to buy an Exige S.

 

Have mercy.

At least the copper recognised it. Did you tell him about TLF?

No time. He and his partner had clearly made an unscheduled diversion on their way to something else. But I'm pretty sure I'd recognize him again if i saw him. He's probably on LT, so maybe if I post there he'll surface.

They made an unscheduled diversion around the back of a supermarket to see an Evora and you didn't have time to say "Hey, join the lotus forums!"?

 

Excuses...............

The cop, was lean, mean, in a rush (albeit politely), AND HAD A GUN!!! Plus I didn't want to delay him in case he decided to ticket me for not having a front plate. Just for the laugh, I'm hoping that happens to Bibs when he takes the wheel over here later this year for the Lime Rock Historic Festival, at which point I will indeed say the car was stolen. But he'll be in good company since I believe MJK told me he was once asked by a Connecticut State Trooper never to drive in Connecticut again due to excessive speeding (paging Kimbers to the fact check desk).

 

Moxie I still love your car and its the only one Ive seen with that colour interior... Stunning

Thank you. Too bad my kid barfed up Cheetos in it yesterday.

 

I'm kidding. It was actually Marmite.

 

I'm kidding.

 

No, really. (Now where's my wet-vac gone to?...)

That looks like either a temporary construction bridge/overpass that collapsed with the car on it or more likely part of a car transport lorry that flipped. I go with the latter.

thanks indeed for the Dutch road test. entertaining even though the only words I could catch were 'Daily driver' and 'Porsche Cayman' (I assume those last two were preceded by "better than a ..." :)  )

He says the Porsche is a better DD, and the Lotus is more fun to drive, and more of a "hardcore" racer than the Cayman.

 

His conclusion is that it's a great car with an awesome engine sound, but he finds it too expensive (about €100.000/£85.000 in the Netherlands), and he thinks there aren't any suitable roads here to drive it. You could go to a trackday, but then he suggests to buy an Exige S.

You could visits German Lotus fans via the Autobahn / Nürburgring / Nordschleife / :D

Interesting, Luc, thanks.

Price is deceptive because the Evora comes with a lot standard or in reasonably priced packs that cost an arm and a leg on the Porsche.
