Klaus this the same one which in the first post. Seen quite often around town.

The two turbos treetribe mentions are hardly a hop and a skip from each other.

POOR MAN's Porsche.. Well I think in India 52 lacs is big amount of money... Maybe a small amount for u my friend.. Try to be in someone else's shoes whose hard earned money can get him only so much.. A Alto can be someone's Mercedes or for that matter a MAYBACH for him.... Dont use terms used in the international market coz abroad u can buy one at 25 lakhs.. At that price u get only a CAMRY here...
Cheerssss

Evo6, point taken... But couldn't you import say an M3 which in the US lists at about $50 grand (+/- $5000 depending on options) and pay the duty and still have the car here for about the same price???

Dippy, I can gladly show you both the cars if you have the time this weekend... They are literally across the road from each other... Here's pics of the grey one..

Nice pics treetribe!

Theres actually a suprisingly high number of porsches in bombay... really suprising!
One saturday night (and this was 2-3 years ago) i saw 3 different porsches within 1km of each other...none of which were boxsters btw (also saw a testarossa that night!)

Dayyum, the grey with dark wheels looks HOT! Is the pic taken at four seasons?

Thanks for sharing.

The black one that people claim to have seen is I think the black Cayman S. I say this cause it's the only black Porsche I've seen in Mumbai (besides shady Boxsters).
The Black Cayman belongs to a member. Pics are here.

Interesting discussion on the Porsche Boxster exists here (Porsche competitors- Audi R4 & Audi R8).

thAT grey one is incredible.Oh treetribe on the M3, way too expensive here, 350Z-great car to drive but once you've gone through jeremy clarksons review you'd think otherwise plus the interiors do seem a lil tacky. the Z4?,man thats not a drivers car,trust me..driven 2.Just another 2 door bmw and a lotta wind in your hair. Yes,well all in all if I can I'll try affording an M3 someday coz obviously thats the only real drivers car in your list n i would love doin standstills to 60 in 4.8 secs.so till then umm.porsche it is.

Sorry, I don't think the owners would appreciate me posting their addresses...

Nitroxx, i'm sure there are plenty of other cars you could get here for about 50 lakhs... However, since you seem to be sold on the Boxster, I'm sure you'll enjoy it!
