Can Lotus Make Its American Comeback At This Price?

Pricing / Comments

The Evora 400 is ready to roll. Here's what it'll cost you.

After being forced out of our market in 2015 due to various issues with the powers that control our roads, Lotus will be back in America for 2016 to battle with the power of its strongest competitors. Its weapon: the Evora 400, unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show. The car, which has been improved in nearly every area, will be fighting some daunting competition. So, how much will the comeback car that makes 400 horsepower and 302 lb-ft of torque cost US consumers, and will that be tempting enough to keep them out of Porsche dealerships?

The mid-engine Evora 400 will arrive at our shores with a price tag of $89,900 (before destination charges), taking a large leap up the price ladder over the outgoing Evora S. This also puts it just in the middle of Porsche's entry level 911s – the Carrera and Carrera S. More importantly, it is priced just above the Cayman GT4, Porsche's 385-horsepower mid-engine beauty that closely rivals the Evora 400 in just about every category. As the most powerful and fastest accelerating Lotus ever to be built, the company has certainly put a lot of work into this car. But will it sell?
