Default Pics: The Official Porsche 997 Carrera thread! Discuss 997 non-turbo models here.

Today evening I was at the Hilton & what do I see! The new Porsche Carrera S..Silver in color with no reg plates. I wasn't carrying a camera at that time..so sorry no pics. It looked awesome! Big 235/30/ 19 Wheels, 5 spoke alloys & those yellow calipers....damn.....drool drool & too much drool :d I stood there for 5mins just admiring the car. The guy who was driving it looked not more than 30 & by his clothes he looked like he should be driving an Indica or so. Also near Benzer I saw a yellow coloured Toyota MRs..it whizzed by so couldn't even get a proper look.

The Yellow Mrs guy usually comes to Worli around 11ish.
Thats the best time to catch him.
Whereas the Porsche has been around for a while now.Seen it outside RockBottom on Sat night.
Get the cams moving guys!!

I saw the new 997 in Delhi at the bentley chowroom. The car hadn't even been launched yet so Satya (the owner of the car and the dealership) didnt allow any of us to take a pic. we saw it on 15th oct. launch was planned around end of oct. even saw the latest boxster. both cars were kept covered.

the yellow MR is driven by a 19 year old guy who got it with 7000 kms on the clock and it had been banged up by the previous owner

Damn what do i have to do to see one of these. Hadn't Rtech seen a black 997 Carrera S too? Because i do remember him telling me that. I'm relying on my eyes to capture this baby. Forever stored in my convolutions.

Hey Ajmat, is the new BSM out already? If so, why the hell can't i find one in Mumbai?

Looks like a 997 to me too. The fact that the script says only Carrera S means it's a 997.
