Sorry TypeF173!
That's another goof from me. 🤔
Autocar did a comparison test with the Porsche 718 Cayman GTS in their magazine dated 8 June 2022.

The acceleration figures I have were estimated by Automobile-Catalog.

Best regards to you from Flt 158.

Still it's good to know Autocar has done a full 8 page road test of the Emira V6.
But it is strange no one has issued them here on Fast Laps.
Maybe someday that will be remedied

No! I got that wrong. Sorry!
Top Gear never did do a proper test on the 765LT.

Thank you for your reply, TypeF173.
Maybe Autocar are waiting to do a full road test of the Mclaren Artura.
But I agree that Autocar should have tested the 765LT by now.
However they might have noticed that Top Gear have issued a full set of acceleration figures - and they are rather good.
I don't know if Fastest Laps have presented them here.
I'll go looking.

By the way, does Evo magazine ever issue a full set of acceleration figures?
I haven't bought a copy for at least 4 years.
All I seem to be doing is flicking through and promptly putting it back on the magazine stand. This should not be!
Why leave it to Autocar to have all the fun?

Best regards from Flt 158.

Perfection indeed! What a great car.
Perfect driving position. Perfect handling.
And perfect looks.
I would love to see a Lotus Emira on one of my Irish roads.

Safe driving from Flt 158.

Most modern-day factory "supercharged" cars use either a male-based twin-screw blower or a female-based roots blower. THESE ARE NOT REAL SUPERCHARGERS. Both of those are considered "positive-displacement" superchargers. Mazda and Ferrari use a unique kind called "dynamic" superchargers which are designed to improve air vibration and fuel economy, not to mention NATURAL hp & tq in their NA cars!!!

AN ACTUAL SUPERCHARGED CAR, such as a high-performance Studebaker or Ford from the good ol' days, relied on centrifugal blowers. Sadly, no modern actual supercharged car exists.

The sc systems used in the Lotus, Jaguar, Hemi Hellcat and other muscle cars, etc., are NOT the authentic kinds. They artificially increase displacement, so when you're running a 2-liter "supercharger" on a 3-liter V6 car, you basically got yourself a 5-liter V6 car. Unless you plan on doing massive tire burnouts or taking your car to a prepped dragstrip, the "supercharged" car will be making the same maximum power as with a n/a engine, just at a much lower peak rpm, with more torque as seen in a typical 5L car. It will ONLY produce the advertised "supercharged" hp figure on a very good day if you're lucky... it's as hard as trying to quit gambling and smoking cigarettes...

Unless it's massively underrated by the factory for whatever reason, a PD supercharged/twin-sc car with equal power, equal torque, equal gearing etc etc will NEVER reach the same potential maximum speed as that of a n/a or turbo/twin-turbo car...

I hate to break it to you, but the Emira will be slower than the single-turbo Cayman S, let alone the GTS 4.0...

If a Hellcat Challenger or Charger EVER had a 707hp naturally aspirated engine it would be topping WAYYYY more than 204 mph... an Aston Martin Rapide S with similar aerodynamics and far less naturally aspirated power did 203...

Target performance? OK, well I Love Lotus? But some hatchbacks half the price are doing that. Sure it'll be a great track car. Where 99% will never go! LOL!

Also, absolutely NONE of these cars listed are competitors for the Emira. That's like comparing the F-word to "heck."

McLaren 765LT vs Lotus Emira

Ferrari 296 GTB vs Lotus Emira

Porsche 911 GT3 vs Lotus Emira

Mercedes-Benz AMG GT Black Series vs Lotus Emira

It's supercharged, so basically it's a baby Jaguar F-Type R. Instead of a V8, it's a V6. Because it's a 6-cylinder car, it has to chase after the Porsche Cayman 4.0 GTS. Hopefully, one day, they make a GT4, let alone a GT4 RS rival. It will happen, because Lotus will make anything fast. They're the Dodge of exotic car brands.

Lotus back in GT Racing! Good, where they belong.

I wonder if they'll make an electric version with some 800-1000hp since it looks like Evija

It's not a supercar. Lotus is NOT an exotic brand. Americans love to think everything is exotic.

About the same power, similar weight, and similar price as a Cayman/Boxster GTS 4.0.

I think it'll fool a lot of people thinking it's a supercar. In terms of brand recognition and value, I don't think it's better than the Porsche. But I would be more inclined to buy this instead because it's just more special.
