Premium Package, Sports Gearbox option, Sport Package, star shield, 2+2 seating configuration, Recaro front seats, Lotus racing 4 piston brakes, 18-inch front, 19-inch rear wheels, aluminum chassis, composite body. Extremely low miles. Factory warranty to May 2015/36K miles. 6000 miles
$50k

Option 2:
2011 solar yellows:
Sports Gearbox option, Sport Package, star shield, 2+2 seating configuration, Recaro front seats, arthracite wheels, Nav (not factory) 9500 miles
$50k

Option 3:
2011 Canyon red:

I am also considering a couple of 2010 with similar equipment ... chrome orange and silver.

I am parcial to the canyon red (for me is the best color) ... but the other are nice as well. What is the best deal and needed options?

Honestly all are very similar. Mileage is a NON issue here. These are 200000+ mile powertrains. Buy what you like and start 10% lower than asking price. Good luck. BTW any 2010 by now has had the early release issues addressed so keep any of those in the game.

BTW standard equipment (so you may clean up your list)
all have recaro seats
all (almost) have starshield
no real cost issue with 2+0 v 2=2
99% of cars had sports gearbox

Almost all had premium package (leather)
Almost all had sport package (Gearbox)
All loaded birds had tech package. (2010 LE's for example--> LE means launch edition {1st ~250 made}

Hope this helps.
your first listing looks like window sticker.
Wheels may vary. Either cast silver or anthracite
or forged silver or anthracite (~1000 option)

Looks like you have a red Evora in your future.

if you get a 2+2, 4 person brakes really are a must-have option
Good one ... missed that

BTW, those are the negotiate prices .... i guess you are indicating I should get a better price

"Recaro front seats, Lotus racing 4 piston brakes, 18-inch front, 19-inch rear wheels, aluminum chassis, composite body." All standard on N/A models. Buy the color you want, no point in living with something to save a k$ or 2.

So, if it doesn't have the Sport Package, there's no "Sport Mode" right? If so, as much as I love Canyon Red, I think that would strike it off on my list. The only time I drove w/o sport mode when was a brake sensor malfunction (covered under warranty) and I couldn't active sport mode. Hated it.

So, I'd probably go with the silver due to lower mileage and warranty.

Ah, you had a turbo Elise. Yes, definitely get the sport package with "Sport Mode". :) You may be able to get a turbo or aftermarket supercharger package from BOE in a few months.

Point taken:

I need the sports package and probably the sport pack ... that what this car is all about.

I would like a tech package, but not really a must ... although I do like cruise control

Premium package is probably not needed

Do all these cars have home link ... important for the wifey

From Edmund's: 2011 Lotus Evora Coupe Review | Edmunds.com

The 2011 Lotus Evora is a four-seat sports car that is offered in base and Evora S trim levels.

Standard equipment includes cast-aluminum wheels, bi-xenon headlights, heated exterior mirrors, air-conditioning, leather-upholstered front seats, cloth-upholstered rear seats, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, power windows, a leather-wrapped gearshift knob and handbrake, a trip computer and a CD/MP3 player with iPod integration and auxiliary audio jack.

There are three main option groups available. The Premium package adds accent lighting, a center armrest, heated front seats, premium floor mats and leather trim throughout the cabin. The Sport package features selectable sport modes, enhanced throttle response, a higher rpm limit, a rear underbody diffuser, titanium exhaust tips and cross-drilled brake rotors with black-painted calipers. The Technology package includes cruise control, rear parking sensors, Bluetooth and an upgraded stereo with DVD playback, a 7-inch touchscreen display, navigation and a USB port. A SuedeTex option adds faux suede interior trim elements.

Stand-alone options include a sports ratio gearbox, a rearview camera, power-folding mirrors, various wheel options, clear paint protection film and a premium audio system. Buyers can also opt to delete the rear seats in favor of a rear parcel area.

So if I see a sports button on the left side of the steering wheel ... It has sports mode? I see that a lot of people do not put sports mode in their description but I can see black calipers and cross drilled rotors along with the button

Sport mode is on the left control panel and lights up on the dash. If you get heated seats, it's on the right panel.

Yes sport button, I start the car and push the button, like the improved throttle response. Car rear view is non existent and back up cam really helps but can be put in Aftermarket. Cruise control requires just a switch on wheel and ECU reset to activate.
