My Baleno, ofcourse, on weekends and for long drives (tbhp-meets).

I would also get one real small car (2-seater or something for city/office commutes on weekdays). Though not the Tata 1-lakh car - a Jap one should do.

Perhaps a hybrid. But definitely not a big guzzler.

after 10 years - i will be driving my Padmini (on weekends) and my daily commute will be the Silver Arrow or the best hatch in 2017 (in India) from the Fiat's stable.

10 years? Realistically?

A 900 BHP RWD daily drive, that can be boosted to 2000 horses on nitromethane for the odd once-in-a-while races. All done up by me. It'll take me 10 years for the build anyways. And yes, a 400BHP Gixxer for the weekends.

If I were to dream, I'd be dreaming about driving a 1200 bhp electric Veyron that feeds off of hydrogen, and lasts 10,000 kms between refills whilst nuding the speedo needle to 430 kmph...

If everything goes normally, in 10 years time I shall become less crazy about cars!
Instead of a passion, car will become a means of transport for me. Because I shall have to have worry about many more things after 10 years

Most probably I would drive an automatic car (there should be plenty in India after 10 years) with some good comfort and bit upmarket image. The technical terms like FWD/RWD/ABS etc. will become mostly irrelevant to me by then!

It will be either a Jag S-Type or an Alfa 1XX or Mitsubishi Evo 10 (I know it will be old then.. Dont think I can afford an Evo 20 even then )

hmmm... Maybe all of the above. Certainly not the Baleno, it will be leading a peacfull retired life
