Lotus is set to give the all-new Evora its North American debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show on Thursday, November 20. This is an all-new mid-engine 2+2 — the only such car in the world.
The Evora is powered by a 276 horsepower Lotus-tuned Toyota-based 3.5 liter V6, but, more importantly, weighs only 2976 lbs. Lotus remembers what most other marques have forgotten; that ‘adding lightness’ can do more for a car’s performance than just throwing raw horsepower at a heavy car.
One of our readers (photo credit: Laura Burstein) caught this pic of the Lotus Evora in California before the official debut at the LA auto show:
Despite the Elise DNA in the Evora’s appearance, it is designed to seat two 6’5″ adults in the front seats and “smaller adults” or children in the rear seat. The trunk (“boot” to the British) has a 5.7 cubic foot capacity, which is a decent size and can hold a full set of golf clubs. In case you are worried about the mid-engine layout making for a toasty trunk, Lotus thought of that: the trunk features a fresh-air vented cooling system.
Compared to the Elise and Exige, the Lotus Evora features slimmer door sills and larger openings to make the sporty 2+2 more liveable on a daily basis. Lotus even put a flat-bottom steering wheel in it to ease ingress and egress for the driver.
We were amused to find out that Lotus will be limiting production to approximately 2000 Evoras per year. Such production numbers will indeed insure exclusivity of the Evora, but they represent a large number for a car manufacturer who just 5 years ago was bringing less than 100 Esprits per year into the USA. While other car manufacturers are struggling, Lotus is using its superior engineering and innovative products to grow in the marketplace.
We have a lot more to say about the Evora, but we’ll wait until we officially can get our hands on one so that we can give you a proper review.

A Quick Note From Our Founder –
Over the past few years I’ve taken a very special interest in helping people lose weight and live a healthier lifestyle. Please take a moment to read Brian Flatt’s incredible story and how he burned over 12 pounds of fat in 3 weeks by Working With Nature, Not Against It.
Did You Know That Your Body Is Stuck in “Fat Mode” for 20 Hours a Day?
Learn How New Research Can Unlock Your Hidden Fat-Burning Potential.
In America, we’ve achieved something incredible:
Absolute freedom from the dangers of nature.
Nature’s most vicious predators are no match for humans.
But one danger still haunts us, something that’s stuck with us from the natural world that we simply can’t fight off.
In fact, it’s killing more Americans than any other cause of death.
Here’s just a glimpse as what Americans are suffering through:
● Heart attacks and strokes that put an immediate end to the life of people we love. (If you’re walking around with extra fat on your body, you never know when these illnesses will strike.)
● Back and join pain that stops you from enjoying life, keeps you stuck on the couch, and ruins your mood from the moment you get out of bed.
● Plus diabetes, liver failure, sore muscles, arthritis, and more, costing thousands of dollars in prescription medication every year.
Even children are suffering the consequences.
My Daughter Was Thin, But She Was Suffering from My Weight.
When I was overweight, I thought, “you know, it’s not so bad. I can live with this.”
But then one day, my chest started to ache, and I thought I was having a heart attack.
Just at that moment, my daughter looked up at me with the most scared look I ever saw.
I knew I couldn’t leave her behind, so I decided to look into the real causes of my weight gain.
I Was Spending 20 Hours a Day Gaining Fat, Even if I Ate 3 Meals a Day.
I was shocked when I found out that our bodies can only be in one of two states.
Either we’re burning fat… or we’re gaining it. There’s no in-between.
And many Americans are unknowingly spending 20 hours a day stuck in the fat-gaining mode, especially if they’re overweight.
20 hours a day!
And the only time they’re actually burning fat… is when they’re asleep.
That’s when I realized that no matter how much exercise I did, no matter how healthy I was eating, it wouldn’t matter unless I could fix that problem.
I had to find a way to force my body into fat-burning mode for more than 4 hours a day.
Finally, I was lucky enough to stumble across a new system that works with nature’s big secret to keep my body in fat-burning mode for 12 hours a day or more… and I lost over 12 pounds in just 3 weeks!
I Burned Over 12 Pounds of Fat in 3 Weeks By Working With Nature, Not Against It.
Your body has a natural ability to burn fat.
In fact, you can burn a surprising amount of fat in just a few weeks with the right strategies.
So what are they?
Well, the plan I made works in 3 phases, and they’re incredibly easy to follow.
Basically, here’s how it works:
1. It forces your body into fat-burning mode for 3 times as long. By multiplying your fat-burning time, you make weight loss easy, even without difficult workouts.
2. Plus… it showed me how to make my work outs easier and actually improve my health. (As it turns out, many people are already doing the #1 exercise you need to burn fat!)
3. In Phase 2, I dropped over 1 pound per day, and I was pleasantly surprised as how easy it was to do.
At the end of 3 weeks, I had lost over 12 pounds of fat.
I kept it up and continued to lose more.
And yes, I looked amazing.
But what really mattered wasn’t the weight loss.
I had made a change for my daughter.
I’m Going to Live to Watch My Grandchildren Grow Up.
I may not be old enough to have grandchildren yet… but now, I’m not worried that I’m going to die before my daughter is ready to have kids.
We’ve really connected again, going out to the park and playing games like we used to. I can even go shopping all day long without getting aches and pains in my back!
So I shared these strategies with some of my friends who wanted to lose a little weight, and they were shocked at the results.
In fact, some of them were losing more weight than I did… up to 23 pounds in 3 weeks!
So my friends told their friends… who told their friends… and eventually, the secret got out.
People Started Offering Me Money for My 3 Week Diet.
I couldn’t believe it when complete strangers started emailing me, asking for my diet.
I had no idea it was going to become such a big deal!
That’s when I realized that I had to get this out there for anyone who wanted to start burning fat and looking their best.
(Who am I to hide this from other people?)
So I decided to put together all the information I had on this strategy and put it online.
The only problem… is that it costs a lot of money to do this.
I was a little overwhelmed by how much I had to pay to put together a website and package it all up in a nice little ebook.
So yes, I have to charge people for these strategies.
But when people are losing 12 to 23 pounds per week, I’m not hearing any complaints!
I’m Going to Save You $20 on These Fat-Burning Secrets.
When I showed my website to a friend, he told me I was crazy for making my book so cheap.
“You should be charging twice as much, at least. I’ve seen books like yours for $60 or more.”
He works in marketing, so he thinks everything should be expensive. (Sorry, Dave.)
I just couldn’t do that. I really wanted people to be able to afford this book and use it to change their lives.
So I did the math and figured out exactly what I have to charge to get my money back on this whole thing, and that’s how I chose the price.
If you can help me cover my costs, I’m more than happy to give you these secrets at the bare minimum price.
So click this link to get full access to these fat-burning tricks, and I promise… no, I guarantee… you will lose 12 to 23 pounds in 3 weeks!
