How much did you pay for your Evora?

What year,

How much did you pay,

Did you buy brand new, demo or used if used how many miles

And not out the door, just price (since taxes are different in every state)

Also What was the MSRP on your car

Evora NA MY11 with July 2010 build date. purchased Feb 2012.
Black package
Premium Package
Sports package
12 miles on the ODO
$66,400
When I purchased the car it was still in plastic and vinyl covers. Seems wierd the plastic would be left on the car for over a year.
I know the black package was a port installed option. It seems like after the black package was installed the car set for a year before being delivered to the dealer. My dealer is the listed as the only recieving dealer of the car. And they recieved it in Feb of 2012?

These prices are a lot lower than what I'm seeing on Autotrader / dealer websites. How much negotiating did you do?

Keep in mind Lotus lowered the base MSRP by $8K and refunded the dealer for it so in essence, the new MSRP would read $77K. Also, there were incentives back then, more than there is now but still a nice deal nonetheless.

Is this thread limited to the n/a Evora? I'd like to see what type of deals the S cars are going for. For me, it's a matter of how much to spend on performance upgrades vs. trading up to an S in a year or two. I know my local dealer was selling a 2011 S for $70K about two months ago.

They don't seem to have too much room to move. They squirmed a lot when pressed and got irritated. That's when i knew i was close....

I negotiated zero on mine. I showed up at the dealer the day the car arrived and looked at it and bought it before they even had time to wash it or service it. Even still, during the purchase process, 3 other people called about the car.

The story they told me was they wanted to list an Evora on their site for <$50k to try to draw in people (like me) who had a $50k ceiling. I will say they left my car on the site for several weeks after I bought it - lending credence to the purpose of their pricing it so low.

They kept my ad up for more than 30 days after I bought it too.

MY 2011, Normally aspirated
November 2010 build date
Brand New
39 miles
Prem (with heated seats, rare for NA MY '11), Tech, and Sport packs
Sport ratio gearbox
Sport anthracite forged wheels
My price: $61,000
MSRP with options: ~$79,500

Keep in mind, at the time Lotus had ~$10K in incentives on new left-over 2011's cars (Purch. Mar '12). So that took the price down to $69.5K (after a couple of e-mail negotiations). I then negotiated the remaining $8.5K discount over a period of about 3 weeks (again via e-mail). Although painstakingly slow, it was what the car was ultimately worth to me at the time of purch.
