That I think is not a 928 but a porsche 924. The way it differs from the 924 is by the popup headlamps(924).

It is indeed a Porsche 924,judging by the pop-up headlamps,the front bumper and the ORVMs! Nice catch Pancham.

@Pancham: In that exact same place I saw an E34 5-series. Will surely go and check it out. While I'm no Porsche enthusiast, I think that's a 944. Suhaas please rescue us. In the meantime, here's a pic for reference.

After observing the pics from the net i have reached the conclusion that this thing looks more like 924 rather than 944 as suggested by Mr. Shamik.

It is indeed a 944. Remember the car from one particular Top Gear Episode where the three presenters buy 3 Cheap Porsches and run a cheap Porsche Challenge. Clarkson had got a 928 and May had probably got the 944 in White. Looks like the Same car.

EDIT : I was right. Season 5 Episode 6 to be Precise. Just rechecked now on Youtube. That is indeed a Porsche 944. Great Find Pancham!

This porsche has been in kolkata for quite some tiime now. I remember seeing it parked (3 years ago) for a few months in the petrol pump opposite the St.Xaviers front gate. It was up for sale then, but the car was not in good condition.

@Anish: In that case you can shed some light about whether its a 924 or 944. Whatever it is, nice find!

Thanks Pancham for sharing it with us.
If you have any idea where to spot it, then let people know.
Lets have some better pics!

I still doubt its a 944. Look at the indicator and the lights which are on the same cluster, which means its a 924.Quite sure about it.

That looks like a porsche 924.
The defining feature is the indicator and driving lights in the same band as pointed out by arjun rudra.People from delhi can help out if they have spotted this car.
