I was on my way to Andheri. Was sitting on the back seat on my uncles car! when through the windshield... i saw some thing I have seen before in pictures.... welll it was a Bottle Green 996 911. I told my uncle to speed up.. then i came to know its a Carrera 4 (4-wheel drive)... it had an amazing spoiler similar to the GT2 i think! It was the owners driver driving it.. He was driving so uselessly from the left side of the road through all the gravel outside the road..the car faced some serious potholes. anyways... it had Madhya Pradesh Regitration...
Final line.... It Was AWESOME!!!!

Hey Dippy, what was the registration on the car, I mean was it even registered?
Coz I had seen a C4 (i think) sometime back and it had some middle-eastern country registration. I was told the guy driving it has got a 2-3 month licence or permit or something to drive around India (for few months of his stay here). And will take it back with him. This car looks identically like it, though I had only seen it Wwooosh away , so not sure which was it a C4 or a 911 Turbo or what. But the colour was the same.

ps - BTW, Thanks for the pics and you also managed to get a shot of the Ol' MCGB 1989 hun' Dippss.. Cool bro.

great pics dippy.
this is funny though, i expected the carrera to have the movable aero spoiler, like i saw it on the black one at seaface. but this one has a gt3 rear wing. so this is not the green one i saw quite some time back, it was a carrera 4s with the active aero spoiler...which means there are quite a few porsches in mumbai...yippeee!

Hey,

great luck with the pics man!

I have seen this car several times around regal and parked at athena on quite a few nights. The wheels are huge in real life.... looks great.

Phead, about there being quite a few porsches in bombay....believe me! there are LOADS of them hidden away! One lucky night i saw 3 different porsches within 2 hrs. A black/dark blue targa at marine drive, a BEAUTY of a black turbo (parked inconspicouosly at pheonix mills, ..and cant remember what the 3rd one was !! lol

cya
