Anyone in Utah?

Just curious. I moved here recently from Virginia, bringing my grey 2011 NA Evora with me. I know a user here named @hegg had an
orange one in SLC a few years ago, but he sold it to @brianjlabelle down in Texas.

My car came from the dealership in MD, which closed up shop three years ago or so. There apparently was a dealership in SLC which also closed down, and maybe their service department got converted into a Ferrari garage.

Here's a photo from when she arrived off the car transport (which was quite hard on the car, despite being an enclosed truck):

So Kestrel is wrong, there are at least two people living in Utah

I'm down in Lehi, not very far

Take a look at Lotus Cars Utah on Facebook. There's a group that has been doing some rides. I haven't been able to hook up with them yet but there are a few more around.

I wasn't able to find that group, but I also don't have Facebook, so maybe it's not available with Google

Ironically I *did* run into them. I saw a white Evora 400 driving down 15, but I was in one of my more pedestrian cars (so to speak). I followed him to an exit that went to the mountains and was lucky enough to pull up alongside him and an orange Elise. I signaled for the white Evora to roll his window down, but apparently his window regulator was broken, as he refused.

I had my buddy with a Facebook account search all over for "Lotus Cars Utah," "Lotus Utah," and similar, and he can't find them. Would you happen to have the exact name? It'd be quite helpful. Thanks

Hello! I still can't find it. It must go under a different name or not be visible to public searches.

Congrats on the Exige. I haven't seen one of those in person yet. Any pics?

Hey Michael, I think we were looking at the same time. I’m picking up a black ‘07 Exige on this coming Saturday. I don’t have FB either but I’ll have to find you all here soon for a meet up.
