Default 3 Porsche spotted at vytilla

I was on the way to my office , saw a dark red Porsche Carrera GT in front of DREAMS hotel , Vytilla . Since it was night I was not able to justify the color , but it had forigen number plates.

I also have seen one blue and black color Porsche in vytilla by pass , some one told me one belongs to a Indian team crickter

Some one from ernakulam please throw some light to the 3 Porsche around vytilla.


Also spotted a FIAT (LHD) caravan at edapally byepass , it was driven by some tourists , got the snaps will upload it later

Buddy, it's not Carrera GT, but Carrera S Cabrio, red, DL-regn, 2005 model! It's bought by one of my friend, who also own the black Cayenne, 650i & white S350!

This is the Carrera I mentioned earlier.

The answer is in your post , Just kidding.
Since you say it had foreign plates could it be on Carnet ?

Well, next time try and get some pics buddy.

but didnt he say that the 'CGT' had foreign plates?? may be hes referring to another porsche. and coming to think of it, of all places to bring his car, the guy choose kerala?? he better have some spare change around to get his bumpers replaced!!


P.S: do you guys remember when porsche opened its first showroom in india a few years ago?? the had a CGT but im not sure if it was for sale. and guess what, IT WAS IN RED!!

Since Foby saw it at night, he might have mistaken as foreign plate! It was the same guy I refered as he had went to Dreams!

The red Carrera GT was showcased when the Porsche's Mumbai showroom opened. It was not for sale, just for show! The first showroom was opened in Delhi & that was earlier 2007 I guess!

Spotted this Lexus 2 seater (?) in S.A. Road Cochin today noon. Any idea about this car? Note the dent on its fender . Sorry for the image content, but this is all I could capture in the heavy traffic. If my perception is correct, the vehicle sports a foreign reg.

Also, I saw a back color KL - 39 reg. Porsche Cayenne at Panampilly Nagar last week.

Thats a pretty bad dent on the right faring.
I just hope that everyone in the car was ok.
This is exactly why cars like this shouldn't be driven in India. I have seen one droptop of this car here in bangalore with the same colour running with underglow neon and custom xenon headlamps.nice lookin, must say.
