I remember my mom had visited the Cargo Terminal at Andheri where she spotted a Rolls Royce. I always thought such a super luxury car like the Rolls would always be airlifted!

Thanks Sonu. I stumbled upon this thread as was forwarded from one another thread. I also do the same like - speaking to a vehicle which is rusting and then empathising it's glory moments. I am able to connect with you in that.

Great thread indeed and more over gained a lot of knowledge via these threads. Even came to know about a new profession - marine surveyor!!!

Thanks for all the pictures and tons of information.

Isn't this so depressing a scene?
I'd say shameful for present day generation.

In the late 90's I had realised that local car dealers used to hoard indian cars in a similar way in open fields outside bombay limits for months before delivery and I had submitted an article in this regard to Auto India magazine at that stage, in this regard. Even Speedo cables were disconnected for offering Test drives from vehicles pending delivery.
This is exactly how unwary innocent customers for new cars are cheated.
Thanks Sonu for enlightening the Janta with these rare pics from secluded locations which we do not have excess to.
It could be an eye opener for the foreign counterparts enthusiasm while doing business with India.

Thanks for sharing. Sonu, if I were you I would send an e-mail to Rolls-Royce as well as Porsche with these pictures attached and bring to their notice the sad condition in which their cars are kept at ports.

These high-end luxury car companies are quite serious about their image and I am quite sure they would not like to see the cars which they build with such passion in such sorry states. Don't know much about Porsche but RR will definitely not like their car to be treated like this.

The Rolls Royce seems to have been towed to its current location, there is a tow hook attached to the rear bumper. The front suspension looks to be shot just like that of the E-class in one of the pictures shod with Lorinser rims. Additionally, there are out of date cars like the VW Golf and a CR-V as well. Strange to see no protection film on the Rolls.

Just stumbled on this thread today, thanks to the post on Facebook page.

Thanks a ton Sonu for bringing us these beauties and giving us a peek into the 'life of an automobile' inside a port.

There's a towing hook on the front as well. Also, i feel the front suspension is looking shot prolly because of the air suspension and would raise it once the car is started.

Agree with the lack of paint protection films though

Indeed very sad and the pics are too scary. So how are these beauties disposed off?

Not at an Indian port but worth a look as this hails debut of FUEL CELL car MIRAI, WHICH MEANS “FUTURE” in Japanese.
The four-door Mirai is currently being offered in the UK, Germany and Denmark, where infrastructure for fuel cell cars is being developed. The attractiveness of the saloon car has already been felt in the UK, where the cars were quick to be picked up by business and corporate customers.
