The Fashion For Relief TM event has selected to support the White Ribbon Alliance as it campaigns for the health needs and rights of women and girls around the world, especially supporting its partners in Haiti at this time to rebuild the healthcare system for mothers and babies.

Naomi Campbell says, "I am deeply saddened by the recent tragedy in Haiti.

I am delighted that Lotus Cars is supporting my Fashion for Relief TM charity and I am sure with such generous help we will raise crucial funds to help save the lives of women and children."

Dany Bahar, CEO of Group Lotus Plc, stated, "It is a very admirable cause and we are proud to be supporting Naomi Campbell with her Fashion For Relief TM event in aid of the women and children affected by the terrible disaster in Haiti. The whole of Lotus is supporting this very deserving charity, with many working in their own time in order to raise money for the women and children affected by the earthquake in Haiti."

The Red Cross has said that the earthquake in Haiti has affected approximately 3 million people and it is reported that upwards of 200,000 people have died in the disaster. The magnitude of the earthquake combined with the local geography and house building techniques has exacerbated the destruction.

But, priced between a Cayman S and a 911, and with less horse power and torque?; even the magic of Evora’s handling and steering will be a tough sell over a used 997 911S that can be had for $55k. Ownership of an Evora will be limited to the affluent who’ll buy it to prove they have taste.

With the housing price here in the bay area, a decent house in a decent neighborhood costs at least 450k. Might as well just blow the money on the car and rent an apartment here

As with the GTR, greed will be the killer of hopes for so many who covet a car like this for all the right reasons. Many a hard working professional folks out there, like me smiley, deserve a car like this.

After waiting so long for the latest M3 only to be utterly disappointed by its weight and numb steering feel..many purists, enthusiasts, were hoping that the Evora would be an attainable answer.

if only i have that kind of money i would buy it immediately, I want the car but also I’d like to help the families on Haiti.
