I'm new here and am getting ready buying a new car to replace my Jag in a few months. I can't stop drooling over the look of the Evora
I've been all over the place as far as looking at new cars from Porsche 993's and 997's, Viper's and NSX's. I stumbled across an ad for a used Evora a few weeks ago and was surprised at the affordability. Now that I've done some homework and have test driven a new '11 NA the other day, I'm contemplating whether to go for a new/slightly used '11 S, or a new 2012 NA, or maybe even an S
. I was able to sit in a new '12 and I really liked the upgraded interior and Pioneer system in it but I'm not sure it's worth the premium to me though.
So I have a few questions that I haven't been able to answer through research.
1: Does the 2012 US Evora (NA and S) have a noticeably louder exhaust than the '11?
2: Does Radium make an intake for the "S" or just the NA? I thought I'd read that they did, but was unable to find it listed.
3. Does anybody have experience with the "old" shifting cables vs the "new' ones on the '12? This was the only disappointment on the '11, as the shifting felt a little sloppy.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
