All that showy stuff is fun sometimes, but the drive was nice. 4 hours in a straight line but so comfortable. And room for a couple's weekend stuff, including a cooler and beach umbrella.
I was in Seabrook/Charleston Thur-Sun. The Evora spent most of Saturday parked in lot next to Magnolia's downtown.

According to my math, that's topped out for an S.

great drive

Yes, no longer banned

About 4 months into what has been a spectacular first quarter of ownership. My only issue is between travel and weekend responsibilities I have only put on 2K miles on the car. Today, enjoyed a terrific morning drive from metro Boston to Cape Cod.

What a car!

Today I drove my clean baby to our annual work carshow. They parked me at the far end ;-( I hope I don't lose to the homemade hydroplane.

Absolute top speed has been 292.5 kph, but it always ends with a braking manoeuvre. Yes, it is an Evora S - with Komotec stage 1

Once again, told my hand-washer to be sure to wash the side panel ALL THE WAY DOWN, including the part that curves UNDER THE CAR.

Just bought an old 1992 500E Merc/Porsche named Karl, so Colin's a bit jealous right now.

On Sat. me and three other Lotus owners went for a mountain canyon drive up over the top and down to Park City Utah for lunch as a group. We were with the Utah Ferrari / Exotic car group. Yes we were invited and yes we were treated great. This group just goes on drives and has no bias as to what car you drive. Everyone is treated the same and no annual dues or elections. Just plain all out driving fun and lunch and oh ya great scenery. What a blast. 27 cars in all many of them Ferraris.

Drove my Evora to work today, second time this week. Took the scenic route, but ended up behind a police officer....oh well. Got it home and gave it a thorough bath and dry. Now it sits in the garage clean and shiny!

caw sho update

Well I guess the voting wasn't really based on performance. I had to settle for a tie for 3rd. Sad! I forgot about the demographic here being on the older side (50+) and engineers. I got beat out by a bunch of anchors, I mean, old muscle cars. At least I came out ahead of the 1963 VW Beetle.

Category 1 – Car
1st place
Tie
Dan Huber – 1970 Dodge Challenger
Henry Herbert – 1965 Ford Mustang

2nd place
John Campbell – 1950 Chevrolet Sport Coupe

3rd place
Tie
Mark Ryker – 1966 Chevrolet Corvette
LCkitty – 2011 Lotus Evora

4th place
Chad Rainwater – 1963 Volkswagen Beetle
