I've seen some of the "new" 2911's listed at $59k. I'd like to think the dealers would like to move these cars. What do you think would be a fair price to offer that would have a chance of succeeding?

Thanks for any real life experiences or educated guesses.

Depends on which car you're referring to..2011 ex-China cars w/2 year warranty or actual left over 2011 inventory where the warranty clock has started?

The Chinese Evoras ranged from 55-60 depending on options. There was not a lot if margin on these and demand has been pretty strong, so don't expect much of a discount on these if any.

It's a great deal as-is, with price being below the car's used book value.

Mostly the cars that were imported to China. But there was a 2012 in Boston that has 2500 miles on it purchased in September of last year for $57,988.


Maybe I should go with one that is exactly the color I want and not worry about warranty or year so much. It's not like I can drop it off at my neighborhood Lotus dealer anyway. LOL.

I was browsing cars.com and looks like some of these new 2011 w/ 2yr warranty prices have lower to $54,900 - $56,900. Unless you really want to buy one now, but I think the price will continue to drop toward the end of this year as more choices become available. The Evoras are not topless so spring or summer will not improve in price as like an Elise or a convertible. I have a feeling that those Evora S IPS will have to discount significantly to get them move off the lot.

For demand being strong there are a lot left on dealer's inventories. I will probably throw a low 50's number at one and see what they say.

Just my two cents, but given acceptable equivalent pricing, a lot of us have had great experiences dealing with Abe.

My new 2011 Evora S was $59995! and it was a 100% loaded bird with EVERY option. Hint!! Try 50-53K for an NA.

I am throwing a 50K offer out on a 2011 Orange this week to see if it sticks. I have heard that some have gone as low as 47K on some very base non "s" in white in California.

Nice price. Was it already titled? It seems dealers title the cars to take advantage of incentives and mark them down but warranty starts at that moment. :UK:

The batch of new 2011s going around the country are titled by Lotus of NA as previous owner, so legally sold as used, yet new. Mine was like that and only had 15 miles.

Non titled dealer demo. Had 518 miles on it. Abe knew the car well. My minor punch list is already being processed. Just few bits like insulation in rear boot torn when accessing battery due to too much velcro

I'm guessing this worked since the Chrome orange with oyster is sold.

Was it you?

Maybe a dumb question, but what's a "Chinese Evora"?
