Scanning through past threads I see a few people have left the flock for the GT-R, RS5, X6M (guy locally here), etc... and it got me thinking ... what other car would you consider after owning a Evora?
I would know of no other car that combines best-in-class handling, great looks, usability, and a reasonable price like the Evora. It is exotic and rare, but not bling.
Of course, a 458 or a MP4-12C compete on handling, looks and exotic, but at what price? who would use them as a daily driver? Or take them to a track day regularly?
The F-Type or the Vantage may compare on looks, but never on handling.
The GT-R will outperform the Evora both on track and, thx to 4WD as a daily driver, but in comparison it is just ugly.
The R8 would seem an option, has 4WD, acceptable looks, but in the end less space than the Evora.
The 911 has the handling, the look (in public opinion), but is so far from being rare as a VW
The Cayman has the handling, some would say it looks good, can be used as a daily driver but will always be the 2nd (or 3rd) best Porsche.
I went for a cruise in a scuderia then straight after into a 458. I will take the scuderia over the 458 anytime. Thats probable what I would change my Evora S for, the scuderia or 458 speciale or whatever car Ferrari makes after thatNobody mentioned a 430 Scuderia? Handling similar to the Evora, great engine, great gearbox ...
A little part of you died as you wrote those wordsI've sometimes thought of just retiring from sports cars all together and just going a nice Point A to Point B car like a Toyota or Honda.
Opps...I meant So Cal. Newport McL has tempted me repeatedly. Open or closed end. IIRC $20k down with $22XX a month at some pt. Decently loaded. A lot of pple sign up for open end and just dump the car after a couple of months, albeit having to pay the difference if any. Just think of it as "short rental".I'm curious to know where is "here." Lease rates have sucked here ever since banks got hip to the idea of avoiding being left holding the bag re over-estimated residual values.
