Hi all ... Just received my letter today. It states there is only 118 Evora cars in total in Canada of all variants. Mine is the only carbon grey in 2013 of all variants.... Not a popular colour I guess!!

I was surprised to see how few of Evoras are in Canada. Makes it that much more unique. I've had people get out their cars at traffic lights to look & follow me until I stopped to see what it is. Been asked several times if it's a kit car!

Hmm, mine is a November 2011 build at A10280. So they made 134 cars in November? These can't be sequential.

I just test drove a 2010 Laser Blue 2+2 (SCCLMDTU9AHA11543) and it had a Certificate if Vehicle Provenance with it. Thought I'd share what it said to help fill in any more pieces to the puzzle...

The car is 170th out of 241 cars, this car is 9th out of 10 cars in Laser Blue; This car is the 6th out of 7 cars in Laser Blue with Black/Charcoal trim, this car is the 3rd out of 4 cars in Laser Blue with Black/Charcoal trim with exactly the same options. (Car was a manual with Sport Package, Technology Package, and Premium Package)

'06 Laser Blue Elise: Sport and Touring Pack

Finally received my documents! It was 72nd out of 325 in 2011. It was 4th out of 27 cars painted Quartz silver(5 cars had the black pack added in the US). It's 1st out of 5 cars to have the black and oyster trim. It is the only one in the same color/trim and options.
It also had the silver forged wheels and trunk net
I have also added a folding mirror switch.
Cool stuff!

Now I'm deciding on how to frame it. I'd like to present it at the car show in a frame but I don't want a big bulky yard sale sign. I've seen a few ideas on eBay that have plastic frames. I like some of the mounts seen here and ordered a 4" aluminum Lotus badge from eBay. Couple that with a good professional photo, certificate and I think I can come up with something that will fit behind the seat and stand alone at the show.
I don't think I'm going to frame the letter because it's rather boring. I'll keep you posted on the progress, cheers

I got my certificate last year and I'm still trying to figure out how to frame it. Going to a car photo shoot in a couple of weeks. Maybe it will inspire me. Did you frame yours yet?

I'm so confused. The OP says he was 113 out of 285 in 2011 USA car, and then myself and another car were out of 325 USA cars in 2011... so what was it? 285 or 325? Does this have anything to do with the China cars?(mine) anyone remember how many came over from China?

When he sent me the copy via email. Before sending out the "official" ones I had questioned about the lack of information about the car going to China. I noticed a few pages back someone else questioned the same thing and it doesn't seem to have been resolved yet. In theory if they changed the production numbers to include the China cars the OP aswell as a few others on here should receive a revised copy to reflect the additional cars..?

Nice! Mine is number 4. Looks like you have the silver wheels. Mine are anthracite, guessing that's probably the only difference.
