Default Supercars & Imports : Delhi

But it's bloody quick!
True it can very much be used as a daily. My daily is an SUV, and I still felt pretty good driving it. Usually in a sedan, I feel like I'm sitting on the road, but the 911 being a sports car really made me feel good. I could cross speed breakers and small potholes comfortably, considering this car didn't have the lift system.

What I didn't like was the exhaust, as it didn't sound all that great but that is always an issue with forced induction engines. The car didn't have the sports exhaust, so maybe that will make it sound a lot better. Also the acceleration didn't feel linear like it should be and is in NA cars, and I did feel some lag after which the power would suddenly come in. This wasn't there in the NA 911. Overall it's a fun car to drive and would make a good daily.

There will always be lag in a Turbo engine, no matter what. The sport exhaust is definitely louder but as a daily driver a loud exhaust gets tedious sometimes. My car has both, rear axle steering and front end lift, and I actually do use it almost daily, driven almost 1500km in 3 months within delhi. Including school runs and grocery shopping.

And why on this earth, we lesser mortal souls have been deprived of your ownership experience of an iconic Porsche, my dear friend?

Please post your ownership thread so that we can also drool at the beauties you own, same goes for Shivjeet as well, we have just seen a few glimpses of his new LC 200. Looking forward to the threads, guys.

911 Carrera S (991.2) in Delhi. The new 3 litre twin turbo engine is actually pretty fuel efficient!

Well, it is not even an import. It is bought in via the CKD route and is the most expensive car to be assembled in India

Interesting! Especially since this isn't the New Gen R8!

Livery seems to suggest it was an Audi India Demo Car.
