The Lotus Evora was the first all-new Lotus for nearly 15 years. It was built to take on the likes of the Porsche Cayman and 911 and when it launched in 2009 as a 2010 MY car the world took notice. The Evora was the world’s only mid-engined 2+2. The Evora is constructed on a lightweight aluminum tub with an additional front crash structure also made from aluminum, along with a steel rear subframe which houses the drivetrain. The model was intended to be a more refined and practical version of the less-than-civilized Elise/Exige.
