Scorcher, where are the pics ?
Hehe, yes. A Racing Yellow 991 Porsche 911 Carrera S has replaced the R8 V10

Sadly, I won't be posting the photos of his cars anywhere unless we decide to do a formal photoshoot sometime.

Coming back to the 911, he is loving it to bits. He is as happy as a kid who found his candy!

Nope, it's from Kochi, this was the Porsche dealership owner's personal car.

Only two other 991s in Thrissur, in white and silver, both base Carreras and belong to brothers.

Nope, the Phantom trio belong to the jeweller family and they don't have any sportscars

The 911 duo belongs to a pipes and fittings group.

Oh.My bad then.
Had read some comments on your page where it was mentioned the family booking 2 911's soon after the first two Phantoms were delivered.
Fake news maybe :rolleyes:

Calicut's latest R8 will reach home tonight, it's the ex-Kochi V8

Pictured right after a pre-delivery service in Bangalore.

Can also see the black C63 guy's recent acquisition, an Imola Red 640d Coupe.

Scorcher, the candy yellow 911 was indeed with the Jeweller Family's Brother's son (the textile group and another RR owner) for a while. I don't know if it was an extended test drive sort of thing that the richie rich get access to.

He had a put up a picture of this car on his fb page a while back. I think I had shared that pic here too.

Hi guys, went for 20 min drive in this beast yesterday night . Mind blowing acceleration, but the fuel economy was not so good

Scorcher....when you said it's the ex Kochi V8, did you mean it's DN's car, his white R8? Didn't see it for a while so I thought he might have sold it.

It's indeed DN's ex-car. The car was sold to Chennai and now it has come back to KL

Guys, sorry if this is an unacceptable question. This particular R8 V8 has had two owners before. What did the third owner pay for it after everything? Really curious to know.

This was never a testdrive/demo car, this was the Porsche Kochi MD's personal car. I know of quite a few big shots and medias who were denied a drive. Maybe he is good friends with Mr.P and used the car for a few days. Our Bhpian friend bought it directly from the first owner.

I don't think it was ever sold to Chennai. It was with Deepak's friend there.
