Arrow WTB used 2011 Evora 50K or Evora S 57K (low miles)

I am in the market for a weekend car and am in no rush but excited to get back into the Lotus family. I used to have a 2007 Lotus Elise a few years back.

I want to buy a Lotus Evora for around 50K or Evora S for about 57K with around 5K miles. I am not picky about the color combo but would like to have the technology package and a 6 speed manual transmission.

Seems like some people have been getting good deals on the Evora on this site posting purchase prices from 47K-53K so I think 50 is reasonably.

I have seen a few lucky people get a well equipped 2011 Evora S for 59K.

Anything out there? please email me at vyruzreaper (at) g mail (dot) com

I have another question:

I have found 4 2011 Lotus Evora right at that 50K price. The one I want is a 2+0.

For resale value - would it be harder to sell my car with a 2+0 rather than 2+2?

Thanks!

I doubt it. If I saw two identical cars, I would offer the exact same price for a 2+0 or 2+2. Most people only use the backseat for luggage anyways. With that said, I do find it handy to have a seat belt to secure the suitcase during spirited driving.

'10 Solar Yellow Evora
'06 Chili Red Elise (sold)

Is the price difference between the 2011 and 2012s worth it in terms of value and resale?

I've heard the '12's have an improvement in quality but I personally can't comment on the quality of the prior years because I haven't owned one (yet). Useless comment I'm sure, but someone had to reply.

Like any car, the issues seem hit or miss. I'm still holding onto one of the very first fed. Elises's and I have had absolutely zero issues, and it hasn't had an easy life.
