It’s not often that a $70,000 sports car gets valet-parked alongside Ferraris. But prime spots are assured for men who make the iconoclastic leap to the Evora, which grants the epic handling and ultralight engineering you’d expect from Britain’s Lotus. More surprising is space for four passengers, and the surge that Lotus squeezes from a Toyota-based, 3.5-liter V-6: 276 horsepower, or 345 in the supercharged Evora S, which tops out at 178 mph.
