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!

We all have a lot to be thankful to your parents for!  :popo:  

I remember doing the same back in 2009 when the car came out originally.  Roll on Evo's review.

No, and it's awesome.  Thank you.  Even the Porsche comparisons are almost dismissed and makes a great case for not following the herd.

So, so far it would seem that on the whole we have a winning car here.

The inevitable comparisons remain, and I think that we could probably be happy that the reviews mostly seem to put the Evora in the "better but flawed" category.

If Lotus can tempt enough people in the market for this kind of car in to test drives, then they stand a good chance of getting to their desired targets.

It will be interesting to see how the first "joe public" test drives go when the demonstrators arrive at dealerships.  Until we see how they go, we're still in "guess mode".

The print review in the new EVO heaps even more praise on the 400 than their brief online review. Very, very positive and some nice pictures.

"A slot in for eCOTY" and a head to head with the Cayman GT4 beckons they reckon. So looking forward to the full road tests.

So the absolute top of the line Cayman versus the new baseline Evora... When the Evora is in the same price/performance  bracket as the 911 S...

Yes, the journo's just don't want to put the Evora 400 "base" against the 911 base as the 911 is £10k-£12k dearer and would lose on all counts except build quality / soft stuff.

So they will put it against the top of the line Cayman where the Cayman is £10k cheaper and that will more than justify yhe Cayman winning as it is cheaper and better built they will say and the Evora will be positioned to not cannibalise sales from the 911 range.

Who ever said the motoring Journo's were not biased / influenced by the big manufacturers?
