In 2010, Lotus introduced the Evora, the only sports car that offered seating for four passengers while boasting a mid-engine. It delivered precision handling, audacious acceleration and cramped seating for two in the back. It was powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine that was rated at 276 horsepower. In 2011, Lotus introduced a beefed up Evora S model, and offered an optional automatic transmission as well as optional heated seats and faux-suede seating. The Evora saw no major changes for 2012 or 2013.
