I use to live in Montrose (near La Cresenta). All the places you list are very nice but I believe La Cresenta is the least congested and you've got some really nice back roads.

Hi. I'm in Arizona. This is my old car that I traded in on 2/13 for a Corvette. It's in excellent condition, all stock, no issues (you can search my history here), and very low miles. Don't tell...

Thanks. I think it underlines a big difference in my ownership between the two cars. With the Evora, I was always gentle with it. Gentle to open/close the doors or trunk. Gentle on the gas and...

Why would you get so sad with what other people do with their money? I've had 3 Evoras and a Elise when they first arrived in the U.S (with an 18 month wait). I'm pretty sure I "get it". I've...

I really don't think it's the gearing but just the way the ECU delivers fuel with a light throttle. It's must faster than the Evora S when you're really on the gas.

Mines the 8 speed auto but I heard the manuals still have that "Skip Shift". I wonder how that 1-4 works with the rev matching on. LOL

This is a timely post. I just traded my 2014 IPS S for a 2016 Corvette yesterday. I went there to try (very hard) to work a deal on a Z06 (which was still on it's way to the dealer) but they...

My $0.02 is that it's marketing hype from Lotus' CEO to be taken like any marketing hype. It's not a like Colin Chapman said it....which would then make it factual. LOL :)

Evora 400 "plays" with Porsche GT3RS

Maybe I'm old. Maybe have I no sense of humor. But, what the hell is this about? It's not street racing. It's more of, "okay, you pass me at high speed" and then "okay, now you pass me at high...

With respect to the higher seating position, I wonder if that is to address shorter drivers who are in the manual transmission cars. My black 2011 S was a 6 speed and, being 5' 5", I had problems...

IPS Update from the Evora 400?

Could we see updates to the pre-2017 Evora IPS to increase the shift speeds like the Evora 400? I don't think Lotus has made any updates to the IPS transmission itself.

Given what you said, you may want to keep your Evora for a few more years. Personally, I don't feel the urge to trade up. The 400 is nice but, for my purposes, not enough to make me want to trade...

Is the clock still in 24 hour time or is there a 12 hour option? Don't like having to -12 every time it's after 12:59 p.m. (Actually, I just look at the radio's clock).
