seems like the owner is out of town or, the owner has parked it there to make way to another beauty?

the porsche seems to be a Left-Hand-Drive - going by the wiper position/direction.

also spotted a dark grey Cayenne near Sunny Park/Sunny Towers.

Porsche looks pretty old and needs loads of dusting for sure. Porsche's have always enthralled me and are continuing to do so.

Even I have seen a 523i in bypass.
Also saw a red Q5 in bypass.
One can spot great cars early in the morning in Bypass. The cars are usually going towards airport.

Sorry for joining the party a little late, Shamik! That is a very nice 924. Doesn't look well taken care of unfortunately!

(Note the difference in indicator pods,airdams and twin high beam/fog lamps instead of one on the Euro model)


Now in the Euro spec 944,note the area marked in the red circle.Compare it with the area marked by the red circle in the pic posted by Pancham.

The difference is subtle but quite evident.The distance between the high beam/fog lights and the number plate of the 944 is greater. Hence I have a reason to believe that the car in question is a mid-70s 924.
Very well done, Ayan! Excellent explanation!

Wink What car? :p

Spotted this tiny car which had a ferrari badge stuck on. I actually shouted at the driver saying "poser" Which car is this? Is it a Cappuccino?
Also saw a brand new but pre-FL S350.

EDIT: It is a San Storm. Probably doesn't belong here.

I guess one of the major reasons of the lack of exotics in kolkata,is not because of the lack of money or roads,there are some nice roads and the city has its fair share of the uber wealthy but i guess because of the problem of servicing.
Looking at the Jag,i wonder where is he going to service that?
