Lotus Evora 400 Roadster won’t save the brand, and that’s okay

Overview

Driving the 2021 Lotus Evora GT is a medieval experience compared with other modern mid-engine sports cars. Yet that’s exactly what’s special about the lone Lotus model currently sold in the U.S.—at least until the Evija hypercar arrives. Nor is it likely owners will see another one at their local Cars and Coffee. While Porsche’s 718 Boxster and Cayman are fantastic to drive and more well-rounded, the Evora GT is more rewarding to masochists, er, drivers who prefer a rawer experience. With a 416-hp supercharged V-6 that sings above 4500 rpm, and primary controls that sync with an excellent chassis, the action behind the wheels is visceral. While the Lotus’ interior isn’t loaded with luxuries, and its lofty starting price can climb even higher with options, the 2021 Evora GT is a machine made to excite the senses rather than make sense.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

The EPA lists two different city and highway ratings for the Evora GT. With the automatic transmission, it’s expected to earn 17 mpg city and 24 highway. Models with the manual gearbox are associated with the same city rating but a higher highway estimate of 26 mpg. We haven’t had a chance to run the Lotus on our 75-mph highway fuel-economy route, which is part of our extensive testing regimen, so we can’t evaluate its real-world mpg.
