Waiting for Delivery... NY

Hello, after a few months of searching, I found the car I was looking for: 2013 Evora 2+2 IPS in Arctic Silver with Red Interior, with perfect options. Hopefully next weekend.

This car is 'new' and unregistered, so excited to enjoy it once properly broken in. I may have some questions about that. I live just outside New York City in Westchester.

This is my second car from the Lotus factory in Hethel, Norfolk. My first being a Vauxhall VX220 Turbo that I owned for a few years while in the U.K.

Looking forward to being part of the community. I'll have some questions so please be patient with me!

Here is a pic.

Cheers,
Rob

Beautiful car. Congrats!

Interesting that there are still 2013's that were never sold. I guess this is why they keep delaying the Evora roadster that was going to be so easy to build?

So this was sitting at a dealer since 2013? When did the warranty start? Do you anticipate any problems from 4 years of not being driven.

Glad it's finally going to a good home, but this story doesn't bode well for Lotus sales in the U.S. I remember seeing lots of new '14s for sale as late as last year. There's a 'new' non-S '14 with 300 miles and no previous owners for sale on ebay right now (selling dealer bought it from a Lotus dealer).

05 Elise, ST, sports, touring, hardtop, DBA 4000 slotted discs, Ferodo DS2500 pads, Sector 111 gpan3, DS brace, HnT pad, front and rear tow hooks, CG lock, ORE double cup holder (caffeine for track); 86 911 Targa (sold); 68 MGB (future vintage racer)

I saw this Evora yesterday at Star Motors in Houston. I was stopping by to take a look at their 400s.

Interesting. So the stories of all the warranties being punched may not be necessarily accurate? It certainly helps to sell a car if it has the full warranty. Good luck!
