Fit and finish is just not quite up to the standard of the Porsche Cayman. Inside the design is a little bland. In our view a supercar should offer a few surprise-and-delight features but there’s none of real significance in the interior.

You may need to read the manual or glance at the diagrams for a quick refresh to get to know what all the switches do. For instance there’s a button positioned to the left of the steering wheel to open the glove box rather than a pull-down handle.

The Evora S munches motorway miles with ease and it glides over bumpy B roads. The seats are very comfortable, well bolstered and give good support when driving enthusiastically. The seating position is perfect although the pedals are a little offset and take a little time to get used to.

The cabin is fairly well insulated, with road roar and engine noise kept to a minimum, but with a car like this the sound of engine burble coming into the cabin is no bad thing.
