Guys, It has just been announced. Shreyans Motors is the appointed dealer for Porsche in Bombay. As Dippy reported, Exclusive Motors will host Porsches presence in Delhi.

Check this linky from germancarfans.com for more information.

Guys, the Cayenne is pretty much apt for India. The Boxster would sell as much as the SLk sells here, i dont see more than 30-40 per year, around 10-20 911s and around 70-80 Cayennes. That puts the number at around 120-150 max each year, atleast for the first year.

The only drawback in Porsche's lineup would be the lack of saloons to garner even more sales. But with SUVs being the flavour for the last one year now, the Cayenne should see sales increase. I see Porsche getting the v6 (sourced from VW) and the S to be sold here officially. The turbo might not make it here. The boxster in boxster and boxster S trim. While the 911 here should be in Carrera, Carrera 4S and probably Turbo. The GT3, GT2 and GT might not make it here since the booking for the GT is closed and the GT2 and GT3 is too performance oriented (read fuel quality and low ground clearance) too see it becoming viable for sale here.

Heil Porsche and welcome.

Revv

Wow this is great news! So a boxster costs about $75K in Canada, so in India it should be around 30lakhs!! Yay!! Will they supply the same HP or will the detune it?

But wait a minute the article says "First time outside Germany"? I thought Boxsters and Coxsters were made in Finland?

Nope, In Mumbai the Boxster costs about close to 60 lakhs. The Cayman is about 70 lakhs on the road.

Thumbs up Cayenne Diesel with Audi 3.0 TDI

It is confirmed that the uber SUV from Porsche will indeed come with a diesel.

Amid speculations of a more powerful bored out version of the 3.0 litre engine, its now confirmed that it will come with same 3.0 litre Audi TDi V6 diesel only.

Still, 240 bhp isnt too low and coupled with the massive diesel torque the performance will be brisk but not ’sports car’ like…. alas its an SUV no matter how hard Porsche stresses on the 911 DNA.


The Cayenne diesel will debut in march next year and will see a probable launch at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show.
