Autotrader Find: Brand-New 2013 Lotus Evora

One of the most interesting searches to run, here on Autotrader, is the search that looks for brand-new vehicles that are more than a year or two old. It’s always interesting to see what’s "left over," and to postulate why — and this Lotus Evora might just be the most interesting leftover new car on the entire site. See the 2013 Lotus Evora models for sale near you

The main reason for that, of course, is obvious: This is a new, zero-mileage 2013 Lotus Evora. It’s offered for sale by Star Motor Cars in Houston, and the photographs appear to confirm this car’s new status: If it isn’t new, it certainly doesn’t look like it’s ever been used or driven. A Carfax report isn’t provided with the listing, so we can’t check to see if it’s been titled, but the ad suggests it’s a "new" car and even lists the original MSRP of $66,606.

Of course, I’m skeptical of any "new" 2013 model listed on Autotrader — but if there was ever going to be a new car that would sit in a showroom for four years, it would be a Lotus Evora. These 4-seater Lotus sports cars are excellent to drive, but their high prices have kept them from finding many buyers. Still, most have found buyers by now — and if not, you’d think a dealer would’ve sold any remaining leftover models at a wholesale auction as the model years have ticked by.

Is it real? Is it fake? Either way, it’s neat to imagine the idea of a 4-year-old Lotus Evora sitting unsold in a Texas showroom — and it’s also neat to imagine just how much of a discount you’d get by walking in and purchasing it today. And then, there’s the real question: Has the warranty started yet? And if not, do you get full warranty coverage, even though the car’s already four years old? It’s an interesting proposition and a tempting car, for the right price. Find a 2013 Lotus Evora for sale
