Had spotted this Cayman near Big Bazar (City Pride Kothrd) about 3 months back. Pardon the snap quality. Blame it on the BB.

That is the OE rims for facelifted Cayman, how can a Carrera run on the same?

This must be the one you are talking about. It is very much a different one. One of the optionals for the 911. Maybe our in-house Porsche guru can pin point on what Porsche calls it.

Interestingly this is the only car from his vast collection that he tried this feat. Breathtaking line-up of cars (and flights) he got.

If I am to put the number of 360s correctly

1. Sachin's 360 Modena (Red)
2. Spiderman ex 360 Spider (Yellow)
3. Ex Pune 360 Spider now in Kolhapur (Red)
4. NL registered 360 (Yellow)
5. Kolkata 360 Spider (Yellow) This could be Spidermans car not sure though

I dont remember a blue 360 in the south but yes there is a blue 355 Spider down south.

There was one more Red 360 Spider which was destroyed in an accident in Chennai

@dippy You are right it was a blue 355 spyder,got confused between the two.The kolkata 360 is supposed to be ex spidermans,it had Dl plates before it was registered to WB.

There was some reports of a ferrari in bhubaneshwar too,someone had posted orissa thread,a yellow spyder.So many yellow spyders!

Spiderman's 360 was HR registered not DL. If the WB car was DL earlier, it could be a different car altogether.

The Bhubaneshwar yellow Spyder has OR plates. And the Bangalore car is a blue 355 Spyder. I guess there could be more number of 360 Spyder's across India. Guess there was a red one in Delhi too. But not heard about it for a long time.

Could have been the O's 430?

Porsche offers a huge list of wheels for their sports cars. If one decides to buy a Boxster or a Cayman, he can get it equipped with the same wheels that are available on the stock 911 Carrera. There are many Cayman's and Boxsters with 911-spec wheels. In fact, a slew of special-edition Caymans and Boxsters came equipped with 911-spec wheels, straight from the factory.

However, I have never seen the Cayman's OE wheels on a 911.
