Carfection compared the two and offered some great insight although its unlike to convert you to the Evora.

While its undoubtedly true the latest iterations of the Carrera have softened their image, expanded their midsection, and grown more commercially appealing, they still retain a level of performance that wows the enthusiast. Especially when considering the gains brought by modern turbocharging and PDK gearboxes, there's not much the typical user is left wanting for—at least in terms of straightline speed.

However, at what price do the electric steering, heavier transmissions, forced induction come? To get a better sense of the tactile, visceral losses caused by modern technology, Henry Catchpole staged the 992 Carrera S against another European 2+2 with comparable power, price, and weight.

Its rawer rival is the Lotus Evora GT410 Sport, and simply by posing the two cars beside one another, we see how their designs speak volumes. In comparison, the Evora looks like a child's plaything, whereas the Carrera S is a subdued, sophisticated sports cruiser. Perhaps it's just the shade of Smurf blue adorning the Lotus' hide which causes that perception, but the dated interior doesn't help that view much.
