For those of you that have tested / purchased an Evora GT, I have a question. I last sat in a 400 some 3 years ago and the whiff of resin gave me a headache that lasted for 2 days. Anything similar on the GT? Of all the things Gales did to improve the Evora, I'd think someone would take note of this. Unless of course, you breathe it all day at the factory and say "what smell?"

My wife is very sensitive to chemical smells. We used to have a 911 SC Porsche and every time we rode in it she got a headache and became sick. So far we’ve had no problem with the Evora GT. It does smell like a new car inside but I wouldn’t call it a resin chemical smell.

My 2010 has a similar smell as the Evora. It has only 3k miles. Neither car gives us a headache from the smell.

Somewhat of a glue smell, I think its the adhesive to glue down the Alcantara .. it dissipates

No smell in my GT other than typical new car smell... as opposed to my old Elan that always smelled of resin.

Every person who has taken a ride in my car comments on the smell of leather. Even after a year. Not sure where a resin smell would come from.

Yes, with my previous '12 S and current '17 400 have always had "new leather car smell" and gives a good feeling each time entering car....some "resin/glue" component??..perhaps, but if so, overshadowed by leather.
