Not surprising,since the Vectra was re-badged and sold as a Holden Vectra in Australia by GM.

But still an odd car to import or it could be a case of TR.

Commodore would have been a better option.

This is also the first time I've come across a Porsche in India with the 'model-designation-decal' strip on the sides! The owner must know his Porsches! Few would tick that option. Kudos!

Seems like you re-viewing the picture. I was carrying my DSLR and would have loved to click few nice pictures of the car but somehow i did't happen.

The car seems to be a latest purchase as it was not registered.

This just might be the best looking Boxster I've seen so far in India!

You were armed with a DSLR and you didn't snap it with that? Shame on you!

I'd noticed the strip earlier but didn't mention it in the earlier post. that's all!

yeah it does look good. But what is so special about this one? Isn't it a regular 2010 Boxster S without any mods?

Well, it does have a few factory options on it like the powder-coated SportClassic wheels and the model-designation strip on the side. I'm sure the owner has opted for a few more things, perhaps for the interior.

Yes, shame on me. Though i am trying to compensate for the mistake, I know a friend of the owner and I am trying to arrange a photo-shoot of this car. So if everything goes right, we may see some good photos of the car.

That would be great! This Boxster definitely deserves a good photo-shoot. Don't forget your DSLR this time!

P.S. No offense. Just a light moment!
