Question car buying advice

Looking at 3 cars on a limited budget(40k) and could use some opinions. First is a Lotus I figure for 40k I can get a 2010-2011 Evora if I take my time I like the rear seat but i'm open to other models. I am as new as they come to Lotus so your advice would be great. What should I look for, any problems, is it pricey to maintain,can I work on it myself ? Never driven in a Lotus so I need some info how is the ride,power,handling The other two cars are the Alpha Romero 4c and a Corvette I realize that 40k is barely enough but that's what I got to work with. Thanks for the help

Not sure if the link will work but check out the Buying Guide in the Lotus Evora section. Lots of info there.

Might also be challenging when the options- even just at three- seem so different to me.

I don't own any of the selections, but the Evora is on my "very much under consideration" list.

I've spent a bunch of time reading that thread posted by ScottH83. I was pretty comfortable keeping an Evora on my mental list after that.

'03 Esprit (for sale)
'14 Evora S
'13 Subaru BRZ
'11 BMW X5M
'06 BMW Z4M
