Want '11 Evora for around $45K cash

Hello, I'm still in the market for a daily driver. I don't mind higher miles. I would still like at least 2 years and 20,000 miles left on warranty. I'm flexible on options and could pay a little more for a high optioned car. Cash in hand. Email me at Edgar.o.castro@nasa.gov

Your about $9k from what some dealers are offering. Maybe you could work a deal with some of them.

I almost bought a 2011 Evora from them for $53k but my local dealer matched their price and....well, was local.

Asking 54k and has a 4 year 100k mile warranty with only 3k miles. Might be worth looking into?

Thanks for the suggestions. I have contacted the suggestions above, but no deal yet. I can't wait, I hope I have one before the end of the year.

There is a part of me thinking twice on a dumb decision. Fr a little over an Evora I can get a 2005 DB9, Bentley Continental GT, Maserati Gran Turismo, or a Jaguar XKR. I KNOW, very different cars- exciting none the less. I don't think I can handle the $3000/yr maintenance and risk of repairs. Evora does not have this risk and cost of ownership.

FYI on '05-'06 Bentley Continental GT's as they are prone to vacuum leaks and are not cheap to fix. Been selling all the cars you've mentioned for quite some time now and while I can definitely see the allure to it, some might exceed the $3K yearly maintenance, the exception being the Jaguar.

There is a 2010 silver Evora for sale with 5100 miles, equipped with Premium Pkg, Tech Pkg, Sport Pkg, Sport ratio gearbox. The owner told me he would take $50000 for it. It is a one owner car. Don't recall when warranty expires. PM me and I will give you his info if interested.
