I am with Tom here. I also had an Evora S and have previously posted that I though the best view was of the front. The rear was never as well resolved and further Evora developments didnt improve that in my humble opinion. The switchgear and general interior improved in the later ones. I could never understand why the heated seat switches in mine were one above the other so you had to peer at them when they could have been fitted side by side. However, I do think the Recaro seats in the early cars were more comfortable than the Sparcos (I think) in the later cars, but I am more road than track and the later seats may be more track oriented. I do have a S1 Elise and two Elans but the Emira will be the first new Lotus I have ever bought. So to answer the question, I prefer the looks of the Emira over the Evora, but I did have a heavy heart when I sold my Evora in December.
