It's a San Storm but modified with a hardtop.

P.S. completely missed that it has already been answered.
San Motors had a hardtop version called the San Streak. It looked nice compared to the one in the pic. Sadly it was never launched as it didn't pass some tests. They had one at the factory the last time I visited.

I maybe wrong but if my memory serves me right i have seen their factory board in one of the industrial estates here in goa for sure which had like a lot of FRP bodies lying outside.
San Motors has a factory in the Verna Industrial Estate close to Margao. The factory had stopped production long back but till recently maintained a skeleton staff.

Then seen it 2 years ago in 2014 - not sure what's the current condition.

The vehicle in the 2nd pic looks like a VW Toureg. I don't think the Cayenne ever came with a tailgate mounted spare wheel.

The tail mounted spare wheel was an optional fitment on the Cayenne right from day 1. Please go through the Cayenne thread and you will see even some of the V6 and S models sporting the spare wheel at the back. Here are some pics :

How can someone just leave a Pajero (or for that matter any car) to rot in a garbage dump .

If I were driving the BMC CleanUp truck - I would probably have taken this "garbage" home.
I was hoping this would be rescued - but sadly it's beyond rescue now. Not sure if this caught fire or was vandalised.

This is probably how you get the rusting classics of our land. The first owner sells it after the honeymoon(with the motor of course). The second owner utilises it to the core for all the values that the vehicle once held. The third or fourth owner( someone like me with a limited pocket ) gets impressed/blinded with the throw away price or gets fooled by a salesman, takes the plunge, shows off a bit, one fine day the car stalls, comes to know that the repair bills are way higher than what you paid for the car or that some ridiculous part/mechanic is not easily available, tries the available jugaads, either sells/discards in desperation or leaves the car in vandal land, hoping for that rescue to come by someday and some 20-25 years later it comes up in the rusting in pieces thread. Then some young blood turns up wanting to buy it and the rc owner is either dead, untraceable or doesn't want to part with something that he was once very passionate about but not many cared. Slowly there is interest in something that was junk a decade back. No, I am not selling now! Will often be the reply.

Saw this S Class in Panjim, Goa. I think it was running very recently because apart from the flat tyre and dust it seems to be in good condition.

I would have preferred this W124 gathering dust. But sad to see this gathering shit.

Sad to see the W124 in such a state. But it seems to have taken the impact very well. There is no damage beyond the A pillar, not even the doors.

Lots of W124s on the road, but all of them with values of Rs. 1 - 2 lakh. Major repairs will easily exceed their worth, which is why owners have started abandoning them.

Sad, because the mid-90s W124s are among the 'newest' classic Mercedes available. It's easy to keep them running in top shape. Requires love for the car & dedication though.

I guess this is the Firebird near Toyatotech and not Malad. If you look at the second pic ... The left hand side where the auto rickshaw is parked ...That's Toyatotech.

Please correct me if I am wrong.

You are correct. This is near the old location of Toyatotech, the shop has now moved elsewhere. I was told this is awaiting restoration.
