My wife says it looks a lot like my car
I should not ask for opinions.
It's a bit hard to tell from the angle in the photo, but the dash's binnacle shape looks more like S1 than 4xx. Overall a nice upgrade except for the rubber duckies that are likely to be removed by the second day of ownership.
I am content with what I have when considering the economics of a trade but I think those who waited to get an Evora will be well satisfied with this car. It looks good to me even as a base car.
The silver car carries the same MSRP as my car did and has all of the same options in addition to the power bump and other new stuff. I have to admit that seems good value given the upgrades to the base model. The CF pack is very nice but I could do without it to keep the price down and still feel well served. I'd want a color but that's just a matter of personal preference.
I think after all the speculation it's a nice upgrade to the platform. I'd personally be careful about adding options to keep the tariff down but I'm frugal and suspect the base car is all I'd need. Hmm. Probably shouldn't have said anything and just ordered one in racing green to allay any suspicions.
There are definitely body changes, especially the rear - which does look better than the 400, although I, too, would prefer the glass hatch, regardless of weight - and the sides, etc., but in general, very similar.
The dash looks similar, too, though another poster asked about the binnacle shape. Besides the additional 22 HP (non-carb) are there other mechanical changes, e.g., brakes, trans, suspension, etc. that someone has a list of?
When I sold my NA Elise, it was a very obvious change to move to a NA Evora. The jump to the S was another very substantial mechanical change, and fit/finish continued to improve. The 400 - another very substantial change in mechanicals, and continued fit/finish improvements.
Once I had my first Evora, I swore that I wouldn't get another one until a roadster was available. Well, you can see how that worked out. But I am struggling with the GT for the reasons above, as well as the major financial hit (although I guess I've got used to that with each trade). How do others feel about this?
