There were a lot of impressive European sports cars on display at last week's International Auto Show in San Francisco. I've been giving Porsche and Lamborghini a lot of lip service lately in this blog, so I thought it was time to show a little love for the rather remarkable new Lotus--the 2010 Lotus Evora.
Like many of its European contemporaries, the 2010 Lotus Evora is a small, lightweight midengine sports car notable for sleek design and performance capability. What's strange is while Lotus isn't quite the household name that Lambo or Porsche is, the Evora is actually more expensive than comparable makes from these two sports-car powerhouses, which on paper doesn't seem like that great of a selling strategy. Despite this, Lotus has put together a sporty four-seater (yes, really) that is more utilitarian than one may expect from a sports vehicle and doesn't seem entirely ridiculous to drive to work every day...assuming you have the type of job that allows you to afford a Lotus.
