Sounds like either the dealer or Lotus is taking a loss.. Pity, I kinda like the company.

Hmm...

There are no programs in place that would cover that amount of discount so someone took a huge bath and I can't figure out why as there's hardly that many MY13's in dealer inventory Heat fan, are you sure it's brand new with delivery/test miles and that the warranty started when you took delivery? If so congrats

My local dealer is offering $2k off a 2013 Evora S IPS. That's $92.5k.

But, it's the only S they have in stock.

2005 Lotus Elise- SOLD 6/9/07
2011 Lotus Evora - SOLD 4/18/13
2011 Lotus Evora S - SOLD - 10/7/14
2014 Lotus Evora S IPS - SOLD 2/13/16
2016 Something else in red

Dylan, I'll send you a Pm or email.

Brand new 45 miles on odo, about two months ago same dealer wouldn't go a penny under 70K maybe they closing up shop, I'm glad I waited I see used 2011s with low miles selling in the very low 50's. I realize with this purchase I'm going to take a huge loss when I sell it because I want to keep it for at least two years so at least this doesn't hurt as bad.

By the way I contacted many dealers, avoided California and Scottsdale dealers at all cost they don't budge and just keep the cars on the lot. I don't blame them they are in a area where the car will sell better.

So which dealer is it Heatfan? Lotus of Thousand Oaks (Silverstar) in CA went through a similar blow-out last year on a few units they had sitting around when they gave up their franchise.

For what it's worth, my local dealer is offering $50k for trade on my loaded 2011 Evora.

2011 Lotus Evora S - SOLD - 10/7/14

I'll roll the dice on world imports..they always seem to blow these things out (for better or worse for the value of the other cars out there) and they still have a decent stock level..

That is an awesome find, I have been going back and forth with Mark at Lotus of Cleveland for a 2012, and he had a great deal on the IPS... I figure I was going to dump at least another $10k in appearance and performance parts for it... which would make me feel better looking at the sticker... Great find man! I could of doubled my upgrade budget !

So, you're saying you received a $20,500 discount? I'm finding that hard to believe (not saying it isn't true), care to share any proof?

I would buy more from Lotus if they could be had at that price....

I know last February Lotus was giving some great deals on MY11( I got about $13k off sticker and was overjoyed) left on the lots, but I thought all the incentive expired in march of 2012. Could Lotus be doing incentives again? I thought the MY12 Evora production was extreamely limited.
