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.

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.
