Info on quantity imported to USA?

Do any of you have info on the quantity of Evoras that came to the USA? breakdowns or production rate info? How unique are we really?

I spoke with Lotus USA about this and I believe this year alone will be 500 Evoras

It actually might even be closer to 350 units for 2012. I know on several Certificate of Provenance postings Lotus has thrown out numbers in the 200 range for NA's and less than a 100 for S's. This makes sense when you think of when was the last time you "spotted" an Evora out in the wild.

Outside of local OC meets with other owners I know, it took me 6 months to finally spot another Evora out in the wild!

certificate of provenance thread is a great resource for info on the MYs. Up until earlier this year there were less than 1000 in the country, with the 12s finished up and the 13s trickling in I would spitball around 1300-1500 cars in country now.

764 total through MY12; MY12 production (158) was limited due to factory slow down and older models still in dealer lots. Production from MY12 onwards focused on S models and IPS's as NA 6 speeds are what do not sell well.

Very cool! Still under 1000 for US. And some of those are sitting at dealers.

Anyone ever seen any total production rates out of the factory?
