A PHer finally gets back into interesting cars, and how!
Since its introduction nearly a decade ago, the Lotus Evora has - unsurprisingly enough - proved extremely popular on PistonHeads. Through the original naturally aspirated car, the supercharged S and into cars as mad as the GTE, the Evora's combination of sublime handling, sweet sounding V6 and surprising practicality has won it many fans.
One of those is PHer 'ParanoidAndroid', member for an incredible 219 months and yet posting his first Reader's Cars thread on this very cool Evora S Sport Racer. Having endured six years with 'normal rather than sporty cars', ParanoidAndroid - also known as Graham - had a few choices in mind when the opportunity for something more interesting arrived: C63, M6, XKR and GranTurismo. However, the Evora S got the nod for its rarity and rave reviews, plus the fact that the Sport Racer model got some visual tweaks that appealed.
Now a couple of weeks into ownership, Graham is enjoying both the IPS automatic gearbox and Pewter Grey paint. Sadly there are a few problems - an inability to fit a child seat being an important one - but given he's also described the car as "sublime" we'd suggest things are going quite well.
Plans for next year include a few road trips and keeping this thread updated, which sounds like exactly the right thing to do with a 350hp Lotus. Congratulations on a fine purchase; we look forward to hearing more soon!
