Lotus S Ips vs 991 Carrera S Pdk new issue of Road & Track - Lotus Wins
I received the new Road & Track yesterday (yellow Viper on cover). There is a comparison test between the Lotus Evora S Ips and 991 Carrera S pdk.
The Lotus wins the comparison mainly because it is a lot more fun to drive. The 991 is faster in every performance category and don't quote me, but beats the Evora S by about 4 seconds on the road course, I think, 1:46 to 1:42.
The Evora S gets a glowing review but its downfall is the IPS transmission which the writer states is neither intelligent or precise. According to R & T the IPS transmission is a Toyota Camry trans with no modifications except for software.
Its good to see that Fun to Drive wins the day over 0-60 and Nurburgring times. Good job Evora S!!!
