Depending on your vantage point, a new string of emails from two Lotus execs is either an accidental leak or a coy teaser of future products. Regardless, we now know that a new Evora S and an Evora Automatic model will debut at the 2010 Paris Motor Show.
A neat tip, perhaps, but the correspondence is otherwise sparse of detail. We wouldn’t be surprised if the Evora S follows in the footsteps of the Elise S and Exige S and bolts a supercharger onto the Toyota-sourced 3.5-liter V-6 for a little extra oomph.
The Evora Automatic? The name should speak for itself and allow the car to appeal to buyers who don’t desire a third pedal, but we wouldn’t be surprised if a new seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox , which Lotus recently filed patents on, appears in lieu of a torque converter.
Both cars will officially make their world premiere at Lotus’ substantial Paris show stand, which may also host the debut of the Esprit successor. If you’re that impatient to see the new Evoras, you can always book a trip to the Nürburgring in Germany — we hear the company will be shaking down both the Evora S and Auto on the Green Hell over the next three days.
