• Road & Track discovers Lotus Evora has more trunk space than you think

Lotus is known within the auto industry for building sports cars that people without the means of buying a Ferrari or Porsche can actually afford. And while buying a car with some serious power and speed under its hood is always a good idea, one of the knocks on Lotus is that it doesn’t have the requisite trunk space that’s in line with the sports car standards.

Turns out, Lotus may have heard that complaint one too many times because as Car and Driver photographer Chris Cantle shows, the new Lotus Evora may just very well have enough trunk space to satisfy the critics.

At a flat six feet, trying to fit inside the trunk of a previous generation Lotus would have been next to impossible for Cantle. But the 2010 Evora is different because Cantle somehow manages to squeeze into the Evora’s boot rather comfortably and he didn’t even have to break any limbs to do so.

It just goes to show you that car brands like Lotus are all about customer service, even if it means clearing up more trunk space on a high-powered sports car.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

Yeah, that’s a lot space for a sports car does it? I can’t believe that evora made it’s trunk so spacious.

Oh yeah! If this is the case then, you can now throw a girl on the truck and out run the police cruisers.
