Also the owner of park hotel used to own a 997 Carrera before and the car was in kolkata till a few years back.

So the white 993 and this porsche boxster,black 924 are the only "propah" porsche's spotted.Any more porsches(other than cayennes)?
I think there was a Cayman. I might be wrong though.

Oh I'd love to see this?! But I think I may have. There is a picture of it next to a Ferrari. I'm not sure what Ferrari that was; must be a Testarossa or a 348, I'm not entirely sure.

I also saw a new gen 5-series today. Mistook it for a 3-series from the front. IMHO, lacks the attention grabbing sense the E60 had.
I'm sure I've seen this. This particular 993 is possibly the most gorgeous Porsche in this country. There are very few air-cooled Porsches in India. And this 993 just stands out IMO. We need more pictures of that, up close and personal, perhaps?!

Bangalore doesn't have a Panamera, and I'm glad it doesn't! Hoping it stays that way! And I'm hoping they don't multiply in the country either. I really, really don't like it.

Bangalore has about 30 pokers ( excluding the Cayennes) but not a single Panamera. I hope it stays this way.Its an ugly looking car.

I guess there is/will be one panamera in kolkata,because i recently heard the panamera that was on display in Cochin showroom had been sold to kolkata as the car couldn't find any buyers in kerala.

This is not a 100% confirmed news,may be someone else can threw in more info.

Spotted a Nissan Navara, some 2-3 days back at Hazra crossing. Metallic grey in color and did not have any registration, neither on the front or back.

Sorry, could not take pics. It was gone before I could switch on the camera. Watch out for it. Looks great and had great road presence.

Saw a Black Q7 4.2 TDI from the same series on saturday. Yesterday saw a yellow beetle on Lee road.

Also while going in a cab the driver was turning into the lane opposite Big Bazaar Elgin Road and he screeched to a halt as a maroon BMW X6 came right in front. Man what an imposing size and street pressence.
Poor taxi driver had a lump in his throat, after I gave him a hint of the cost of anything he hit of that car.
