The front end has been redesigned, with reshaped air inlets, LED daytime running lights, and what appears to be a larger grille. At the rear, a new spoiler may be in play, although it may also be a feature reserved for specific trims or versions of the new Evora.

As yet we have only small glimpses of the inside of the car, but minor updates to the styling, colors, and trim options are likely.

What else can we expect of the 2016 Lotus Evora? More power, for one—perhaps as much as 15 percent more. Less weight, for another—about 15 percent as well. New variants, including a more track-oriented and possibly a convertible, could also be in the works.
