Having seen the plight of the Skoda dealership under Marikar, can only wonder how the same management would run something like a Porsche dealership!

EVM has bagged the dealership for Nissan Dealership in Cochin, Porsche has been bagged with Marikar. Marikar has bagged the Nissan dealership rights at Trivandrum.

The last time i spoke with the Marikar people about 2months back, they said this was going to happen. Good they got it.

So now maybe we can have 4 dealers in one compound (Skoda, Mitsubishi, Nissan and Porsche) (BTW they currently run the Skoda and Mitsu dealerships in the same building)

Yes i know that. But Triumph is not there anymore. They've demolished the builiding and have merged the compound with Marikar.

Shiraz has taken the HM dealership (Amby and Mitsubishi) from Marikar, and like i said its in the process of being renamed.
