@Evan: you might wanna look into the Evora S... 350hp supercharged Evora.. it is fast enough to tie or beat the Cayman R, yet it has more comfort and luxury.

Btw the real competitor is the Exige V6 S with the same supercharged V6. More hardcore and it will dance all over the Cayman R.. although it remains to be seem how crazy the pricing will be.

The Evora S is one of the best handling and sharp steeirng cars. i would trade one against my Ferrari. the brakes on the cayman fade after one lap.

Yeah, because if there's one thing Lotus is bad at, it's designing a good chassis.

Hold on, that isn't even close to correct...

I think it would spin cause it can't handle more power. Bye

After seeing the track time discrepancies between these two cars. I\'d say If the Evora had 320HP and a PDK, it would, at least, match the Cayman S if not go faster. What do you guys think?
