I ordered a 2012 Evora S that I am now told will finally be arriving in July. Wondering if anyone here already has a 2012 model and, if so, what has your experience been? Thoughts on "upgrades"? Any problems or complaints? Thanks.

rare cars

I wonder how many Evoras were produced before and since the shut down. Not even sure how many Evora have been produced in total over all production years. I know Lotus had production goals of @ 1500 to 2000 world wide per year, but I doubt Lotus met those goals.
makes me wonder "how rare are our cars":shrug:

I Placed my order for an S in November 2011. Was informed the car is in production and should be delivered late June. Of course I was also told March, April & May....etc. Good things are worth waiting for - so I've been told.
^ Very nice collection of Toys. :)

Congratulations Dick. It seems like you have been waiting for the Evora for-ever.... You'll truly love it after driving the Elise. Place some photos when she arrives. :UK:

RWLott, I believe (99.99999%) I seen yours at the Lotus of Cleveland building, Black with the cognac leather interior... looks sexy as hell!

They had the new 2012 Evora S in Nightfall Blue there which I went to see as it is the only vehicle they have for Lotus since their selling spree.

I was surprised to see that there isn't any more 2 tone dashboards.

I also see that they wont budge on the S :(

Yes, that would be ours - it arrived late last week. Waiting on star shield. Hoping to drive it home this week? The salesman sent a phone photo upon arrival. Will provide better photos when we get it home.

We drove up to look and brought the owner's manual home to study.
My favorite feature of the Elise was the dome light switch position wired into the security system. A feature on this car that makes me chuckle is the fact it will not play a DVD unless the emergency brake is on.

The new system won't? My Alpine will play the DVD it just wont show the picture without the break being engaged.

Though it isn't hard to bypass this. :D

Congratulations! It looks phenomenal! Marco who is doing the Ventureshield does awesome, and is 100x better than Star Shield. He has done several of mine and his work is flawless.
