Was on Marine Drive yesterday waiting at the signal light near wankhede to go left towards town. Coming from that end was a sleek 'n' classy porsche (silver) without a set of plates with 2 guys in it. Was beeing driven at about 40 kmp.

Last week in Poona saw the gigantic maybach, roll past me -- 2nd one seen

The silver Porsche must be the 997 series which was launched over the weekend and the Maybach may belong to the Poonawala group

X-Machine even test cars are registered when imported from somewhere. But I highly doubt they would be testing the car after its launch. Maybe its for giving test-drives to potential buyers??
