@avishar: Brother, ask me about it! It was awesome. Going again today to OGLE on those beauties.. May be some more photos.
Funnily I see comments on the UGLY BMW than all those beauties put together. Funny lot aren't we.

@Nitrous: Sir I had no idea that A-Star had an AKA name, hence the statement. I apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Awesome pictures bro! I really envy you for being there watching and feeling those beauties in that kind of weather. Must be better than an orgasm . I think your's qualifies as the 'best job on this forum contest', if there were any.
You must have really made 'Raab' happier when you were up there ( wink, wink) if you know what i mean . LOL.

@Rehaan: These are in Mbi port. They are IMPORTS & are awaiting to be cleared by customs, hopefully by tomorrow evening. They will soon show up at Peddar-road showroom. I have pics of import banners but then its not good to post it here. As MOD you'll agree to that.

@Isldhn: Was again at the port & believe me they made me go weak in my knees. Could not click pics as some port vigilante were also drooling on the cars. The best part is that all possible models of the Porsche cars are at one place & you can "CHECK-THEM-OUT" un-abashedly.. Its an exquisite feeling to run your fingers over the lines of these cars & I'll let you in on a secret, I kissed couple of them too.

Man I love Porsche..

Wow, that is around 50 cars I presume. Looks like Porsche India has ambitious targets in mind.

OT: I wont be surprised if you become a "Distinguished" BHPian soon Sonu.

Awesome Pics. Porsche is gearing up big time. I hear they are opening their showroom in Ahmedabad in September and there are quite a few orders already. I know of 1 X 911 and 1 X Panamerra coming to Ahmedabad around end of August or Early Sept.

Looking forward to more pics.

@n.devdath: That's very flattering. Thank you Sir.

@harshal: If I'm not wrong then Ahmedabad cars are in this lot. Porcshe intends to import cars only after confirmed orders placed by prospective buyers.

... & so much for risking taking pics in restricted area & daring to post it on my favorite site.

Raab Rakha.

Default Some Euro & some US Candy

My mad 4 days hopping trip around the globe (half way & towards west) brought some unusual sights. In fact at one of the ports, the moment I saw the cars compound, I forgot which ship I was suppose to attend.
Well here's some eye candy from Euro & US ports. I will NOT mention name of ports for reasons well understandable by most gentlemen here.
