New Evora S Owner (Wisconsin)

Hi everyone!

Just picked up a 2013 IPS Evora S this past weekend. Been a long time lurker, around 2 years. Finally found the right one, had to fly across the country to get it but it was well worth the wait and the drive back! Unfortunately there's still snow up here so I'm storing it for now. Gave it a good bath once I got it home and put it on the tender.

Initial impressions are great! Everything I was hoping for and really lives up to all my expectations. Not many of us in Wisconsin!

What's with this "storing it" due to snow stuff?

We have heated seats, heated mirrors, traction control. Go have some fun!

Just took this on my way in this morning after someone posted on the Facebook Evora group about "waiting for spring"

Very nice! Love the tail of those ones. Hope spring arrives soon! Need a few days of Mother Nature's Salt-be-gone (rain).

Welcome! Good to see another Evora in WI. I used to be in Fond du Lac, but recently moved out of state (but visit frequently to see family). Itís hard to tell if your car is carbon gray, but thatís the color of mine and another ownerís in Elkhart Lake. Below is a photo of a drive we had a few years ago and a few Evoras showed up. Enjoy the car when the salt gets washed off the roads!

Well I'm going to TRY and wait for spring, but we'll see, might sneak it out early. The color is actually Sienna Brown, tough to capture it in the light, I'll definitely be taking more pictures soon once the weather turns. I'll try and capture the color better just so people can actually get a good reference, not many good Sienna Brown pictures on the internet.

That looks like a good turnout at Elkhart Lake, is it an annual gathering or was it just a one time thing? I wouldn't mind tracking down some more Lotus owners.
