Just hours after Leftlane revealed that Lotus was planning on bringing an Evora Auto and an Evora S to the upcoming 2010 Paris Motor Show, our spies managed to capture shots of a shiny red Evora S prototype as it exited the Nürburgring race track.

While just hours ago we had nothing but a name to go by, we have been able to glean a few details from our spy photos – the first ever taken of the Evora S. For starters, the most drastic change comes in the form of an all-new rear splitter which is significantly larger and more channeled than the found on the standard Evora. This test mule retains a dual-exhaust center exit, but the prototype has an unfinished pair of tips, leaving the exact style still unknown for the production car.

Aside from the rear diffuser – which does appear to feature backup sensors – no significant changes appear visible from the exterior shots we were able to capture. Our spies did however make contact with sources at the track that hinted in more changes when the Evora S puts on its production skin – so stay tuned for more details.

Updates arrives for the Evora one year after the model’s introduction

The Evora S variant could prove to be an exciting prospect, given Leftlane’s experience of the standard Evora was a very positive one – with the only thing keeping the Evora from being a serious contender coming from its relatively meager power. Should the Evora S gain some extra horsepower, it would make for a very complete package as both as a GT and a track car.

The Evora Auto should be, well, an automatic version of the Evora. Currently Lotus only offers the Evora with a six-speed manual in two flavors, one with gearing slightly more aggressive than the other. The addition of an automatic transmission may make purists cringe, but given the designation of being a GT car, it makes sense from a sales perspective. Here’s to at least hoping for paddle shifters as well.

Be sure to check back with Leftlane for live photos from the Paris Motor Show in early October.

  • Chevy Estimated Range for Silverado EV Work Truck Raised to 450 miles

    When Chevrolet initially took the wraps off the Silverado EV last year, GM had estimated up to a 400 mile range based on its own calculations.  As the Silverado EV has made its way through development, it went for EPA certification and came back with 50 miles more than GM's estimate.  With this new EPA certification, the Silverado EV has an over 100-mile advantage over its only on-sale competitor the F-150 Lightning Extended Range (320 miles). The Silverado EV will launch first in WT trim with t


    All New 2024 Toyota Tacoma Yearns For Adventure

    The Toyota Tacoma has been the best-selling mid-size pickup in the U.S. for nearly 20 years. Holding such an important place in the lineup, Toyota has been very conservative with updates in the past.  The outgoing generation ran for a full 7 years, but even that was based on a platform that dates all the way back to 2004.  For 2024, the Tacoma sheds the old platform entirely and joins the Tundra and Sequoia on Toyota's new TNGA-F global truck platform.  The 2024 Tacoma is the latest (and final)


    The Ford Ranger Raptor Finally Comes to the US

    After years of being forbidden fruit offered only in overseas markets, Ford has finally deemed the Ranger Raptor worthy enough to bring to the U.S. The biggest reason for the U.S. not getting the prior version was its standard diesel power and the inability of the platform to take a sizable V6 engine. When Ford redesigned the 2024 Ranger (read more about the 2024 Ford Ranger here), they made sure to alter the engine bay and chassis to accommodate a V6. Powering the Ranger Raptor is a 3.0-li
