With the added boost in the Evora S the power output went to 345hp from only 276hp of the non-supercharged version and without intercooler.
Good point.. I just think they will not be going the S/C due to corporate image (emissions, fuel consumption, etc.) Might be a popular aftermarket mod though!!
