So I just received the draft of my certificate of provenance and I thought I would share the information with all of you. According to the certificate and accompanying letter, there were:

827 Lotus cars built in the 2013 Model Year worldwide
171 of those were Evora's that were sent to the US
27 of those were Evora's
42 of those were Evora IPS
26 of those were Evora S
76 of those were Evora S IPS

Now for the really cool thing:
My car, a 2013 Evora IPS in Nightfall Blue with Cognac Brown interior is the only one of it's kind from the 2013 model year. There were 5 Evora S's with the same color combination but those are S's. No wonder why we get so many looks when driving our cars rotfl

Last but not least, Nightfall Blue was the 5th most popular color choice out of the 18 Evora colors offered in 2013.

So US Production stats (thru 2013 MY) are:

2010 - 241 cars (26%); 2011 - 365 cars (39%); 2012 - 159 cars (17%); 2013 - 171 (18%) cars for total of 936

73:27% NA:S ; 78:22% 6-Sp:ISP ... however current ('13 #'s) paint a reverse trend: 60% now S, 70% now ISP

Now a question as to these Chinese cars; were they orginally destined for the US market (they are claimed to already meet US standards) and thus already in the 2011 number of 365 cars or are they now added on top?

What the numbers do show is without the ISP, sales today may have been real dismal and they show that the "6-Sp S" is a vanishing breed.

Fortunately that is not true for global sales. :bow:
I hope that is true for Lotus. But sales of Ferrai, Porsche, etc. do not support that claim.

Until Lotus comes out with a dual clutch set up, I'm pretty sure the manual option will be safe.

As an owner of a 2013 S IPS in Nightfall Blue with Cognac Brown interior, I appreciate the info. Now, if I knew how many of the Evora S IPS in that color combo. No more than 5 I assume (in the US).

I'm one of the 42! I haven't purchased this information for myself yet, but I plan to someday. In the Evora photoblog, I saw a twin to my MY13 Carbon Grey w/black interior IPS, but there could be more... Can't be many though.
