2013 Lotus Evora at Roebling Road Raceway: Photo Gallery

2013LotusEvora

Although the 2013 Lotus Evora somewhat resembles the sporty Exige and Elise — and maybe a racecar — make no mistake: It's the automaker's idea of a "daily driver." Cars.com reviewers had their day driving the Evora, the only model-year 2013 Lotus available on U.S. soil, at Roebling Road Raceway in Savannah, Ga. The sports coupe is larger, heavier and more expensive (starting at nearly $70,000), with bigger doors, narrowed door sills and a higher seating position. A 3.5-liter V-6 sends 276 horsepower to this Porsche 911 peer's 19-inch rear wheels. Check out the gallery below.

Recall Alert: 2007-08 Lotus Elise and Exige

2008-lotus-elise
Lotus is recalling 451 model-year 2007-08 versions of the Exige and Elise sports cars due to problems with the oil cooler line, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. This is an expansion of an earlier recall.

The affected vehicles were manufactured from Dec. 1, 2006, through Oct. 31, 2007 (check your vehicle's build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb), and have an oil cooler line that could become detached. If this happens, oil could be sprayed in the engine compartment and on the tires, increasing the risk of a fire and a crash.

Lotus will start notifying owners on March 4, 2013, and dealers will inspect and replace the affected parts for free. Owners can call Lotus at 800-245-6887 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more information.
