2009 Exige 260 Sport
I've been looking at the new or near new 2017 and 2018 Evora 400s, has anyone bought any of these NOS cars at +$20K discounts from MSRP?
Yes, I drove a new 2017 last December it was priced to sell at $72K, I didn't have space for it, and I still don't but I've finalized a deal on a 2018 with CF bits for $79K.My take is that prices for the new cars have stabilized and may actually be a little higher. Strictly from watching the ads I think peak '17 Evora 400 may be in the past. Good deals....better than I got.... seem to still abound though choice is limited. I see a lot fewer '17s on the listings than there were 6 months ago. I don't think those will get any cheaper because they are almost all gone and they are already a good deal anyway. You might get a better discount on a loaded '18 in pure dollar terms but of course it won't be less expensive than a '17.
Buy the one you want and pay what you have to for that one. I promise you one of two outcomes. The least likely outcome is that you will dislike the car or otherwise get a bee in your shorts and sell it too soon thus losing $8833. Or, more likely you will love it and realize you will never be able to replace it because these are all among the last of their type and they just get better with use. That will cost you the price of the car of course but your kids are gonna love it when you leave it to them.
Assume you've driven one?
I counted 28 Evora 400s 2017-18 on cars.com, ranging from $70K to $99K.Does anybody have a guesstimate on how many 2017's an 18's are still in dealer hands here in the US? That will give us a better chance to understand how aggressive the dealers will be with discounts.
I owned a black car in Hawaii (Oahu) and the only time it was an issue was when the sprinklers would go off unexptectedly. The sun would cook the water and leave you with baked on water sediment that you'd have to chisel off or clean with acid.I counted 28 Evora 400s 2017-18 on cars.com, ranging from $70K to $99K.
The coconut wireless says the dealers are getting $20K rebate from Lotus - and when I mentioned this to a dealer, they neither denied nor confirmed my statement.
I'm guessing the ones over $90K will still be there a year from now.
Here's the most realistic price on a 2018 with CF bits, but black is the last color I would choose for Hawaii unless one needs a very fast mobile sweat lodge.
