six years 36K miles on the Elise - I added many improvements: multi vex mirrors, AC mods, extended key fob range, gas charged piston for the trunk, Larini exhaust, cup holder, radar detector mount, etc.Has anybody upgraded to an Evora? Elise vs Evora NA or Elise SC vs Evora S :shift:
I currently own a 2011 Lotus Elise R with only has 1300 miles, I posted it couple of weeks ago in the sale section. I'm always busy so I have no much time to drive it, so I thought I could let it go and also my other car which is my daily driver and get a 2013 Evora NA w/IPS so I could have the benefits and comfort of driving an "automatic" car and perhaps the same fun feeling when driving an Elise. However it seems there are few issues with the Evora model and the not so good reliability. :shift:A lot of us have come from the Elise/Exige. What kind of driving are you planning on doing?
That's my view when I went shopping for an Evora after owning the Elise for a year. Looking at what the Evora does in comparison to the Elise, I thought it wasn't so much of an upgrade as it is more like an alternative.The Evora is a great car, but for what I value in a sports car it wouldn't be an "upgrade".
I have a 2011 Elise R with 1300 miles, the Elise is a blast, raw, crude and rude which is fantastic but a pain for DD. I have a DD but it is no fun even with a Hemi engine, so I want to unload all my cars and just have one. That is why I am considering the Evora and the Cayman S.:UK:I am planning to buy Evora and keep the Elise. The Elise for the track and Evora for DD
Has anyone autocrossed both the Elise/Exige and an Evora? How does the Evora do?
Compromise sucks. You loose on both ends. It's like all season tires or a leatherman, they can do alot of things, but a specialized product is the best for a specific job. Having said that, the Evora and Cayman aren't too compromised but are definitely more GTish.I have a 2011 Elise R with 1300 miles, the Elise is a blast, raw, crude and rude which is fantastic but a pain for DD.
