Biggest problem for the Evora is the Cayman, especially the Cayman S (and now the Cayman GTS). The Evora is just too expensive and compromised compared to a similarly spec.ed Porka.
I'm a massive Lotus fan but the Evora really needs a 10 grand price drop to make it properly attractive.
- Elise S (in Ardent Red). 0 - 60 in 4.2 seconds!!
- Evora Sports Racer (in Nightfall Blue) with Venom Red leather - naughty but nice!!
- VW Polo GTI (in Flash Red) 1.8 turbo - and tons of torque!!

I'm convinced it is a better handling car than the Cayman (just) . But porsche does everything else very very well, so for most people the Cayman (or a 911) will win the day.
I wouldn't swap mine though!

I could really dig an Evora in the same red as Erics exige with a black roof.
you getting a family Lotus; Evora "sports racer"? I assume you will be allowed to drive it from Devonshire Arms on the Sunday morning run?
I have owned 3 from new Dean, best ownership ever from hand over to dealer customer service, everything was perfect. I really couldn't make a comparison to the Evora but if the experts say a Cayman is better I'm inclined to believe them especially if they actually take the time to give the reason why. Saying that I think the Cayman is better looking, has a better interior and is probably a better ownership proposition but I'd rather own an Evora, that's a real hairdressers car, right there ;-)
I have never owned or driven a Porsche and never will, I have driven an Evora and own an Evora S
