Had a great Saturday morning at Leven, managed to get it sunny with mostly drying roads.
Didn’t know it was back where Murrays used to be until I arrived at the wrong garage !
Short notice invite through Porsche Club so only around 6 people were there for coffee, bacon rolls, pastries and some test drives.
Laura plus help from a graduate from the Aston side to take people out in the Exige 350 and Evora 410 sport for test drives.
Some used ‘bargains’
Liked the Exige, still felt like an Elise to me with better engine noise and heavier, less loose steering. Evora was good as well, although didn’t enjoy it as much as the Exige. Titanium exhaust on Evora in sports mode did sound good especially fully using 3rd gear lots on the back roads, Cup 2 tyres after hitting big puddles were interesting. My test drive in Exige wasn’t best as person was new to Edinburgh and we went wrong route so I got a full on 45mins for compensation in the Evora which was appreciated.
Interesting none of the Porsche guys had ever driven a Lotus even though most have a few cars
Before the drive they weren’t too impressed with the pricing of Exige/Evora or some of the parts used in stalks, switches and key fobs.
But after driving they were impressed and a few really interested in what they would be like on track.
Irrespective of slagging off other brands, people etc it’s a shame that some guys who have money to spend on multiple cars haven’t even been considering having a lotus in their collection
