Arrow Porsche 911 GT3 in India

After much anticipation India's first 991 Porsche 911 GT3 has landed in Porsche Gurgaon.

I am told it will replace a certain yellow Turbo S in a Delhi garage.

Amazing rare car. A lucky owner no doubt. I believe this car was made in limited numbers.

It's been here for more than 10 days now and this would be sharing its garage with a slightly pimped ML63 AMG.

On side note 991 911 Turbo S has been sold and temporarily replaced with a Macan S. The sportscar duties in that garage is done by DBS-MT, ecks' ex-car.

So finally somebody buys the real 911. I did come very close to selling a 997 II GT3 RS in Mumbai to an ex 911 Turbo owner, didn't fall through for some reason.

The 991 GT3 has to be one of the best cars ever made to drive. 9000rpm, 475 horsepower from a 3.8 boxer 6. Magical numbers for quite a lot of people. Including me.

I've been to Porsche Gurgaon and was blown away by their inventory. Whoever is speccing up their cars is doing an outstanding job. Not a single car standing there had a boring configuration

This GT3 should now be the crown glory!

Wonder whether this has the fix to the famous fire issues reported earlier in the GT3s. Surely the owner may not want his beloved GT3 to be famous for having its burning photo in the newspapers!

This one was to land more than a year ago. Due to the GT3's burn-happy engine, it landed now. All issues are fixed

As per my math it should be around the 4cr mark, depending on the state of registration.
But what perplexes me is that the landed cost of a Lexus 570 SUV is more than the GT3 as per Zauba!

I'm sorry but your math is wrong. The GT3 is about 30lac cheaper than the Turbo S and the Turbo S is about 2.7 - 3cr OTR. Therefore it is way less than 4cr.

The GT3 would cost you 2.25cr OTR.

Bang right in the middle of a Carrera S at 2.0cr and a Turbo S at 2.57cr.

Ironically the Porsches are starting to look like a bargain now, especially compared to the MY2014 GTR which once boasted to be a cut-price supercar which now costs some 20 odd lacs more than the Turbo S!
