Wow thats a beautiful Porsche, probably a 964 and with a soft top. Delicious !!

Hopefully our in-house Porsche guru will throw some light on this model. Over to you suhaas.

The Shelby Cobra is stunning. Which is the covered car behind the Shelby replica? And what about the scarlet sedan next to the poker? Is it a Daimler or an old Jaguar?

That does look like a 964 type 911 Cabriolet. A picture of the rear would help me confirm that. Beautiful example. But what in the world has the owner done to the front bumper? It doesn't look stock.

The Cobra is very interesting. Definitely a kit car, but I'd like to know who built it. Great looking thing, I must say. Doesn't matter if it's a replica. You can't find original 427s in great conditions these days anywhere around the World, anyway.

More info on both cars would be appreciated.

Suhaas is right.
It is a Porsche 911 carb type 964.
It has a souped up engine too.
All the three cars are owned by Amber's owner.

Amber the restaurant? The 964 somehow doesn't appeal to me, not this particular example atleast.

@ theragingbull : It looks similar, could be the same ! I spotted this car two weeks ago too, but could not get a snap. so it's probably been in kolkata for a while.

@ shamik.bose and Avishar : Thanks !! I only wish i could have gotten a clearer snap ! unlike other cars, i just could not keep up with the beast. Hope it gets out more and some one gets clearer snaps !

Saw this Jaguar at Park Street on Saturday.

Sorry for the bad snaps, the owner was giving me some stares.

Also saw a MP registered blue Hummer, was too slow with the camera

It was Avishar who got it right, the first time.

Do you have more information on the 964's 'souped-up' engine? It would be interesting to see what the owner has done to it.

Wasn't this car in Mumbai for sometime? Lovely and very well maintained 997. Very tastefully done. The LED brake-lights, the quad-exhaust-tips and those wheels are good additions.

i think WB registered car was spotted in Pune IIRC - but then it was last year.

the only visible difference is the exhaust tip - chromed in the MUM car. the one shot by S001 is in Kolkata for sure - see the yellow amby in the far right.

This car resides in both cities and it was a long overdue swap for the owner.
