This is almost a year old, but Henry Catchpole compared the new 992 generation Porsche 911 Carrera S against the car he believes to be one of its closest rivals, the Lotus Evora GT410 Sport. It’s really hard to pick a car to go up against the 911 Carrera S but the Lotus Evora is about right 2+2 sportscar in the right price bracket. Seems about right.
We all know that our beloved Porsche 911 got a refresh and sits on top of the current Porsche model list right now (more about the 911 generations here for those who are interested). It is fresh and new and as always it is a cracking car. Packed with technology, high quality materials and impeccable engineering it is the standard by which all others a measured.
Next to it is the Lotus Evora GT410 Sport. The Lotus Evora has been part of the Lotus model range for over a decade now. Looking at the Current Lotus Model the reality is that little has changed, it is still the car that needs to carry the load at Lotus.
So, which is better to drive? Most of us would pick the 911 if we were buying a car so lets ignore that for a second. If you had to choose one of these for a two hour, Sunday morning backroad run which we would go for?
