Why do you consider it to be mushier? Is it not the same construction as the Elise/Exige where the top contributes nothing structurally?Waiting for convertible, since I don't actually view it as a real sports car. So I might as well get the mushier, heavier, open top version.
yeah but i don't think the body shell is a streesed structural member of the chassis construction - it just bolts onto the VVA chasis = similar to an elise - top or not - i am pretty sure it doesn't matter.The roof is integrated into the body unlike the Elise and Exige. You can see from the photos.
Dito. Not for a 3,000 pound 280hp car. $50 to $60K, yes.too expensive however i may never have been in their demographic to begin with. *sigh*
if it were in the $50's i would start saving now. the only problem with that is by the time this is released, assuming it gets good reviews, who knows how many times i would have changed my mind about this vs a different car.
*edit - wow, that was my first post?? i guess i'm a lurker.
My thoughts exactly - and I'm living in a country where there are a couple of roads without speed limit. The Evora would combine the capabilities of my Alfa Spider as a touring car with the performance of the Elise.I am past the point of wanting to be the fastest thing on the road. Something is always faster, more radical, more expensive… I want something fun and capable of doing a multitude of things well. Basically I want a Lotus that merges the top down practicality of the M100 with the fun of the Elise. I think that is spelled Evora.
