Although the 2013 Lotus Evora somewhat resembles the sporty Exige and Elise — and maybe a racecar — make no mistake: It's the automaker's idea of a "daily driver." Cars.com reviewers had their day driving the Evora, the only model-year 2013 Lotus available on U.S. soil, at Roebling Road Raceway in Savannah, Ga. The sports coupe is larger, heavier and more expensive (starting at nearly $70,000), with bigger doors, narrowed door sills and a higher seating position. A 3.5-liter V-6 sends 276 horsepower to this Porsche 911 peer's 19-inch rear wheels. Check out the gallery below.
