First U.S. Lotus Evora Delivered to Austin Man

One of my favorite cars I sat in at the Detroit auto show in January was the new Lotus Evora. It’s the company’s answer to the Porsche 911 and isn’t as bare-bones as an Elise. It’s still a tight fit inside, but gorgeous with an intriguing dashboard as well.

That’s why Bruce Rice of Austin, Texas, is a lucky guy. He took delivery of the first Evora today at Lotus of Austin. The dealer still has one Evora listed in its inventory at $87,250, but we’re not sure if that’s the one Rice purchased or if some other lucky guy with the need to buy a British sports car can just walk off the street and buy one. lists three Evoras in its inventory: one Laser Blue model in Newport Beach, Calif., and Las Vegas; and one black unit in Jacksonville, Fla.

At least now, all those Lotus fans know to be on the lookout for an Evora in their neck of the woods.

Beautiful car; can't wait for in-depth reviews.
I read somewhere that it will not be available with side or head airbags. Hopefully that info is wrong. Otherwise, I hate to see how this does in the crash tests.
