Hi everyone - I've had my 08 Elise for 6 or 7 years now, and have absolutely loved it!
My use has changed in the past few years, so have priorities... Years ago, as a younger single guy, I loved the car for quick weekend road trips and evenings out. Never been into track or racing - just a great drive. My lovely wife now fills the passenger seat, leaving little room for a weekend duffle bag - were both wishing for a bit more space, and a bit more comfortable seats...etc. Because of that, the car only made it out of the garage 3 times last year and so far once this year, just doesn't get used as it should! Thinking we will be looking for a more "mature" car. I have yet to sit in one or see one in real life, but based on the comparative threads here I think we are going to start investigating Evora's. Love the lotus community, but could potentially look at other beasts as well.

This thread is multi fold:

A - Is there anyone in the northeast / new england area with an Evora (ideally GT, 400...etc?) that would want to provide some guidance and info? Maybe a meet up? I'd LOVE to see one in person. Bonus points if you've had an Elise before! I've never been a car show, never been to a cars and coffee. My one other lotus friend (other than you all!) is 3000 miles away.

B - POWER is important. Can anyone comment specifically on coming from an elise SC (factory or otherwise) to an Evora NA vs SC version? I am a big forced induction guy, so my gut says that will be a requirement on whatever I end up with next. But maybe the torque of a V6 will suffice

Any other info or pointers would be great, without starting another elise vs evora debate!

If you were to sell your car now, the prices are pretty high and a couple of them have recently sold on bring a in the low 60s.
