I am probably one of the younger people here to purchase an evora (I am 23) but I am curious what the age demographic looks like for this model. When the elise came down in price into the high teens low 20s there was a lot younger guys that purchased them but the evora is definitely in a completely different price bracket. More or less the reason I am wondering is I have seen very few of these cars with taken apart or worked on by there owners (mostly due to them still being under warranty I am certain). Anyway just a poll if anyone may be interested!


P.S. Drove my Evora over 400 miles yesterday and it was great! :shift: Happy motoring

Haha geico over here in the US said no problem! I'm glad I have had the opportunity to work up to getting this car in the last 5 years and think it was well worth the time invested.

23! Are you kidding me! When I was 23, I was driving a 1978 Oldsmobile cutlass and it wasn't 1978!. The thought of owning an exotic ride at that age, congratulations to you!

Great poll question by the way. Definitely looking forward to seeing how this one turns out but my bet is the average age will be between 40-50. It's a pricey ride.

Purchased at 25, now 27. Does that make it my quarter life crisis car? :)

I was fortunate enough to find what I have the skill and passion for early in my adult life.

I figured you were closer to my age. Any plans on changing your suspension setup? Car looks stellar

I hate being in the "and up" checkbox category.
At the point in my life where I always need to go to the end of the page to find my checkbox:facepalm
and I'm not even 50 yet:shrug:

Bought mine about a week before turning 29. I was sure I would be the youngest guy in the car. I mean the price definitely plays a factor, but just the fact that production numbers are so low and finding them/working on them is so difficult, I just assumed it would be me and a bunch of old guy car nuts who were just too old and brittle for an Elise.

I was amazed the first time I went to a meet up. The other Evora owner I met was pretty close to my age, and I was maybe a little older than the average Eliger. Now having been to more events, I've met owners of all ages, but I haven't met a young Esprit guy yet!

31. Evora will be my 4th vehicle in the garage. I won't be buying another vehicle at least for the next 5+ years for sure.
