2011 Evora S, bought it June 2015 with ~3200 miles on the odometer. About 1200 was put on it making 3 trips to Gator for maintenance. The car has 8900 miles on it now and I don't expect it to go over 9700 before it gets put into storage until 2017.

Only the morphed dash (not too bad at all) and a ripped stitch (about 2" X 1") but I put Airblue 80 windshield tint on and always use my Sector 111 windshield sun shade when it's not in the garage.

Other than that no issues at all except I'm going through gas like water :) I made all my typical upgrades…LED lighting throughout the cabin, installed clear bra (why the original owner didn't have it on this gorgeous colored paint is beyond me), 25% Tint all around, installed RLS blue tinted mirrors, plack exhaust because duhh, always detailing the hell out of it and clay barred/waxed/polished it last weekend and OMG…what a difference it made! Seriously looks like it's brand new…with the exception of the odometer…for some reason it seems like it's reading a little high…maybe I should contact Hethel and see if they can figure it out ;)

'12 IPS N/A started with 300, now have 19,850 in 2 years. Hmm, this was supposed to be a third, low use car. Every time I open the door to the garage i'd rather drive her. When I drive my others it always feels like I downgraded and am disappointed. My other cars are great, just not an Evora!

2011 NA Evora bought in 2014, had 1800 miles on it, IIRC. The previous owner didn't like that it didn't have cup holders, and she finally sold it back to the dealer after the battery died a number of times from disuse. I scooped it up and made it a daily driver (poor thing). 25k on it now. It has some fit and finish issues and requires some routine maintenance.

(Fixed handbrake that wouldn't go down, fixed LH door microswitch, fixed trunk gas struts. RH inner door handle requires adjustment, AC condenser leak from stone hit, rear subwoofers stopped working, glovebox retaining bungee slipped off or snapped (again), clutch needs bleeding, GPS module worked once and never again, and headlight adjustment would be nice.)

Fortunately I like working on this car. It's half the fun.
