Hello Everyone,

I'm about to be the proud owner of a 2011 Evora! I can't wait! I'm excited and a little nervous, as this is first real sports car I've ever owned.

It's an early 50th birthday present to myself and as much as I'm looking forward to getting the keys and bringing it home, I am having a little buyer's remorse. As much as I love different aspects of the Evora (hand-built, rare, very liveable, decent fuel mileage, etc.), I guess I'm just not used to spending so much on myself. Any way...

I'm looking forward to tapping into all the insight and info on this site and will post a picture once it's home.

Jim

I have spent most of my life never lavishly spending on myself, until I realized how much I enjoyed the Lotus. Worth every penny

yeah...NJMSP is about an hour from me. Been there a couple times with my boys to go carting and had a blast. The dealer where I bought the Evora has connections there and is going to set me up with a free 'track day'.

Welcome! Yeah, that buyer's remorse will evaporate as soon as the car arrives. I just picked my '11 Evora up yesterday and it's been nothing but smiles, even paying the registration fee (ouchy), still smiling. Get in, fire it up, hoon. :)
