Excellent pics!

Was wondering how the GT will look amidst our marutis and tatas.

That Carrera is hot, of course. But seeing that beautiful grey 911 Turbo each morning can make anyone work just that little bit harder!! Great start to the day.

Anyway, this is one of my all time fav cars...gotta go beg daddy dearest to pull out the cheque book
there are alot of LHD cars in india but those were imported before the rule came in. counsulates are still allowed to import LHD cars but they cannot be sold here anymore. they have to go back.

Indeed... it was taken out of the showroom on Saturday night i believe, and the GT3 came in its place 2 days ago.

But what i want to know is....where is the CGT right now? Any chance of spotting it on the roads??

Porsche seems to be in a hurry to launch all their models in India.

The GT3 is postioned between the carrera 4S and the Turbo, so pricing should be in the 95l to 1.05l ex showroom.

I hope the GT3 RS is next to be launched, it will be a real treat to see it on indian roads.

There were rumours of the Carrera Gt being baught by the owner of the Audi R8 , Drop Top Phantom and other cars .

But wasnt the Gt suppose to go back to the museum within 2-3 weeks of the launch of the porsche showroom . It stayed on way longer than 3 weeks , so i assuming they that the showroom was looking for buyers .
I wish we get to see this car on bombay roads , because its one of the best sounding cars ever .
