Apologies guys, I did not enlarge the pics and hence could not see the vents. Regarding the exhausts, I thought those were original (or Optional) since have seen these on many Turbo cab's (pics I mean).

In the second pic, is the car behind the Turbo a M5? Maybe it was going for the speedrun or something.
OT: Manish, where do you not have friends? Mumbai, Delhi, Pune...

OT - Is it the same spot where you spotted the A8 with RS4 rims ? Where exactly is the garage with so much exotics hanging around and looks so low-key.

What is the color on the Targa ? I mean, the exact name of the paint if you know.

That is a 996 Turbo. could be a Turbo S, but the rear bumper is original. It seems to have the sport exhausts, so its prob a late model 996. The 996 has started to look dated. But a little work, and they look like 997's. i have a friend who's 996 has been transformed into a 997 GT2. Looks great, you'll see the car with crowds around it in London. The interiors on the last 996's were quite nice. I in fact prefer my interior on my 996 to my 997.

A WB registered 997 turbo?
Got this from a friend's FB profile.

He is not a pg3 person but a very low profile person.

Why is it so shocking Shamik.? He has property in Kolkatta, hence the car is registered there.

Yup Scorcher! That's the same garage! It's a couple of feet away from my house!

Oh and check the B'lore thread in a bit. You'll find some more pictures of another car. It's not entirely an exotic but a nice import!
