It feels like the Lotus Evora has been around forever. In reality, 'forever' is just eight years. But during that time, the car has seemingly had more variants and revisions than what should be legally allowed.
Now you can get the Evora in 400, 410, and 430 horsepower flavors, each with varying levels of lightweighting, aero, and aggression. We've driven essentially every variant, with the 400 unexpectedly earning so much adoration from our editors that it finished a surprising second in our 2017 Performance Car of the Year, beating cars from Chevrolet, Porsche, Mercedes, and more.
While we got to use the car for a few days during that test on back roads and a race track, we didn't get to live with it. There were also more ideas for tests that came to mind than we had time to organize. Lotus, which might be staffed by mind readers, recently asked if we'd like to take an Evora 400 for a couple of weeks to do everything that we could think of. That Evora, in a lovely shade of silver and with just 725 miles on the clock, arrived this morning. It will be up to all sorts of shenanigans for the next two weeks until we have to give it back.
