I think its 3 lakh for the PCCB option..not sure.
It maybe cheap for the 997 buyer, not others.

In the UK, the PCCB option retails for around £5500, roughly 4.7 lakh rupees. I may be wrong, correct me if I am, but 3 lakh seems a little cheap for that option. I would easily think they're worth close to 6 lakhs.

Its one of the most expensive options...with duty and taxes etc. just adding PCCBs can increase the price of your 997 by upto 8-9lakh ruppees. Think they're quite rare on 911s in India. To get an idea.. to upgrade a 997 C2 or C2S wheels to the Turbo wheels are a 2300 euro option. Aero kit 4300 Euros, and PCCBs 7800euros.

Exactly, the hefty price is for the quality, the fade-free nature and the lightweight aspect of these awesome brakes.


Also, if I'm not mistaken, there used to be some young guy with a silver 997 Carrera S on these forums earlier last year. I remember him saying he had purchased the PCCB option for around 9 lakhs.

Wink The Pump & Pricing

Hey guys! For those who are wondering about the car being at the pump. The pump is being used by Shreyas Motors (Official Porsche Dealers for India) as their temporary workshop. this 911 came in early this month. The pricing however is between 1.25 - 1.5 cr depending on the options about the PCCB. Trust me i have driven 2 997s one with and without (mine) tht option, you will only realise it if u break at over 100kms/hr, but yes with the turbo u have to have those, never know when u need them lol! and they are quite expensive if u aint into technicals! Cheers

Not such an expensive option ??? its 9k USD worth, singal handedly the most expensive..


BTW, nice car...awesome to see a turbo in india..

personally not a big fan of the porsches, but if i have to get one it would have to be a Turbo or a GT3 RS

Smile Nice 1

Nice one!!! I know that the owner of this car has a Cayenne Turbo in black as well to name a few of his cars. If what i hear is correct there is a steal grey one there too and a black one on it way. Keep them camera's ready TBHPians (Bombay). Would be an event to see the Gallardo SE and the 997 Turbo go head to head what do you say Gemballa!!!

I think the turbo would eat the SE alive, but at the end of the day i would still pick an SE.

I absolutely agree with this statement. In the end, if given a choice in that price-bracket, I would never go for the turbo. Agreed there isn't much in that price but I would rather go for the CLS63/E63/M5 and a spare C/3/A4 for change.

The Porsche looks too undemanding, too unappealing and not exotic enough.

I believe the quota for India is just 1 per year.
Is it true?
