Well said, and totally agree!
Its kind-a laminated to alloys. Thick transparent plastic. I'll take closer pics next time. We hardly get 40 second to check the car between yard & truck. These contractual drivers get money on load basis, so there are always sparks flying.

FIVE: Three on top & two on bottom platform.

Posting the pictures with a little bit of its history makes that much difference.

Kudos Sonu.

MODS: Thanks for merging. (but the header also got deleted)

@mac: The best info is that these cars are bound for ITALY & SAUDI, (EXPORTS) from Mumbai Port.

**125 Vistas went to Italy & 72 (A-Star) "Celerio" went to Saudi.

Default PORSCHE's & PORSCHE's EVERYWHERE

Me: "Ganesh Ruuuuuk"
Ganesh: (wondering at my sudden outburst) "Kya hua Sir, aap theek hain"
Me: "Nahin"
Ganesh: repeating in worried montone "Phir Kya hua" He stresses on the last word.
Me: "Woh dekh"
Ganesh looks in the direction of my finger & his eyes grow big & wide. He knows & shares my penchant for EXOTICS "Gaddi ghumaoon Sir"?
Me: "Tou kya"!?!
Ganesh Steps on pedal & take the swiftest 270 deg turn & we are inside the compound.

Sorry Sam (Me copycat)

What would you do if you happen to see ALL Porsche models & I actually mean all because whether its Boxster or Cayman or 911 or Panamera or Cayenne, ALL of them in one LOT & that even right under a cloudy sky with cool wet wind blowing just to tease your senses.
I mean what would you do if you can drool, see, touch, ogle, take pics & do it all over again & again till you wish you die & you are in heaven.
Something similar happened to me this morning when I went for my port round & I came back gasping for breath. How can they make something sooo.. sexy & soo.. beautiful out of metal.
Words are NOt enough to describe so here we go:

..to be continued

(P.S.: In case you guys dont mind, you can also see my maroon NHC in the 8th pic "LOL")

Default GERMAN devil...

Sharing the space with all those Porsche's was this black evil eyed BMW. Seems like an import from UK.
One against all:
