      Wow... that is an awesome looking car. Sounds like you’re going to have a lot of fun with it. Here I am getting excited to finish up installing the H&R cup kit on my 100hp mkii gti. No I am not jealous.



      Ok, maybe just a little. Anyway, have a blast with her and looking forward to seeing and reading more.

      Yeah, somehow I don't see this thing showing up on swapalease.com.

      Speaking of the lease...2 or 3 years?

      Very cool! just a repeat of what everybody else has said- glad to hear you got a good deal on it! I like bright colored cars so the inserts are kind of the saving grace here!

      Wow, this is so exciting, and what a car! In for more impressions on the Evora 400. Is the store going to carry the new Evora GT?

      I got to help break in the Lotus this morning. When I sat behind the wheel, it had ~110 miles. On this road:

      First thing: the Evora rides so nicely. It is stiff, but perfect damped. There is no need for a dual mode suspension, it’s perfect. But wait, you say, if the ride is good, certainly you give up feedback. Well, I am not sure I would want any more feedback, the steering wheel is crazy alive. Sound is great. Supercharger noise once you get above 3000 rpm is amazing, and lots of induction noise. I can’t wait to hear it above 5k, and at full throttle.

      I am used to cars that rotate. (Even the rabbit, I use weight transfer to get the car to rotate) The Evora 400 does not rotate, it changes directions. Point the nose, the rear follows.

      Thanks Breadon for tossing me the keys of your still factory fresh sports car! I am not sure I would be so willing to share on the second day of ownership.

      If you want to pick nits: throttle response for blips on downshift feels a couple milliseconds slow, but not noticeable otherwise. If you trust that it will happen, and don’t overthink it, it’s totally easy to do a perfect downshift. And the unflappable suspension gets a little weird with a big bump under power mid corner, which may just be the LSD doing its thing as traction gets limited.

      Cars are meant to be shared. I'm glad you made the drive out! This morning was fantastic.

      So this thing. Wow. Where to start.

      I was expecting it to be like an older 2012 Evora S but better. Holy crap. It's different in a very good way. Older Evoras have gentle understeer that you need to drive around. Every direction change needs to be slow steered, or a touch of the brakes, a lift, something. They were designed to have friendly understeer, but no matter what, just like my SS, you needed to be careful with the weight transfer or you'd overwhelm the fronts.

      Evora 400? Like Jon said, it just changes direction. No need to settle the nose, unload the rear, get the tail to come around. It just has insane turn in and front end grip, but the car is super stable. Push it too deep and it'll still understeer, but rather than understeer being a dominant trait that you drive around, it's just there as a gentle reminder that you over did it a hair.

      The road today was cold and slippery, and when I was driving the ATS-V I was sliding around everywhere. Evora? Quicker pace, no drama, only unstuck the tail once when I was playing with how it behaves when you have to carry a big braking input into a corner, and even then it was a quick flick and it was back in line. Caddy had some nice 3/4 turn countersteer catches.

      Feeling out the Evora I was walking away from my friend in the ATS-V, and my friend is a talented driver. Running the pace you and I did last year would be no sweat for the Evora, and that was about all the SS had to give.

      If you've driven a Cayman before, it's like that, with better steering feel, more compliant suspension that processes mid corner bumps better, and the car is just as comically easy to drive fast.

      Only real complaint is that I need to bed the brakes and maybe bleed the system. The AP Racing brakes don't fade and stop the car well, but the initial bite is soft and the pedal travel is a little longer than I'd like.



      ATS-V is a fantastic car. I love it, aside from the awful GM 8 speed automatic.



      Eclectic lineup. My friend just bought this NA Miata from BaT. Other friend brought out his R32 GTS-T, then a Boxster, couple of G bodies, a Peugeot 205 GTi, and an E30 rounded out the fun.



      French car doing French car things, like puking out fluids. Miata had an issue with the shifter, and I think Jon helped get it sorted out.



      Gotta show my friends from Driving While Awesome a little love.

      What a great morning. I'm smitten. I love how this car drives.
