[QUOTE=ACT86;3532329]May as well throw in my 2c also as I’m a bit of a Lotus nut. The steering in the Evora is pretty fantastic, definitely the best setup I’ve had with power steering by far. I owned...

I don't think it's crazy at all! What other pure 2+2s are available? Does the Brz/86 miss the "cool" factor of a Lotus? Definitely. But I don't think the driving experience is so far off. It's not...

If it was to save costs, why develop a new system? What was wrong with the old one? And again, everything I've seen new on this second gen isn't for more mass appeal. It's more focused, feel and...

Yeah. But none of us are getting it right, so.. My understanding is that the EPS motor acts like a mass damper and that takes away some feedback vs a hydraulic set up. The Evora apparently used a...

Hydraulic vs eps would be my guess. There's Def more feedback with a Hydraulic system and kickback. This guy is WAY smarter than I am lol

Compared to later 718s and 991s. I've owned a 993 C2S, 07 997.1 Carrera and '06 Cayman S. I prefer their earlier systems and prefer the twins EPS system to both the 991 and 718s. Have not driven q...

I was reaching a bit after a few. It wasn't. And steering feel is one of the things that sold me on the car despite disliking the characteristics of the engine. Just sold a GLA 250. It's like a hot...

100% agree. I've raced Rotax and a Birel 125. 0 to 100 mph to 0 in about 8 seconds. "Feel" is the most important thing to me in a road car. And straight line speed is the fastest thing to get boring.

I didn't. Also owned it in between an Elise and an RX8. So it felt like a weak chassis. Had an Evora prior to that abd its ruined me for life on steering feel. The wheel also super thick. Replaced it.

And that's a solid point too. Yeah, preference. Not everyone is looking for the exact same thing and wouldn't mind a bit more weight 👍

There also wasn't a previous version to compare to. I've got my opinion on the matter and that's that. Y'all think whatever you like ��
