WTB: Lotus Evora IPS, under $40k

After many years of saving I'm looking for a Lotus Evora, ideally 2012+

Good luck under 40k. I searched for probably 6-8 months and found that all the low price ones were higher mileage or had damage, etc...might need to re calibrate your expectations a little bit. I bought my 2014 with 16,000 miles for 48k. 45k was where my original autotrader alert was set...

Thanks for the reality check. I don't mind up to 40k miles or even a little more, still think it's unreasonable?

It's marked as lemon/buyback which kind of scares me, otherwise I'd have jumped on it!

That's the kind of stuff you'll see under 40k. If you're willing to take the risk, go for it! I personally wanted something with less miles and less potential for catastrophic failure.

There were a couple out in California I remember seeing for just over 40, like 42k I think that were around 50-60,000 miles....seems more reasonable based on your criteria. So, if you're patient something might come up. If it doesn't, you should have a little time to save up a few more dollars...

We just purchased a 2014 Evora IPS out of Cali. And it's AWESOME!
There's a play on financing to consider if you're going that way. 5 years and under qualify for better rates.
Rebuilt titles should come with extreme caution. Imo, unless you're a car builder, I'd say clear. Already enough quirkiness built-in from the factory.

Good luck with your search
