So who was driving a silver Porsche, badly, on the OMR this afternoon?

The car looked nice; the driving didn't. The sin was tailgating.

Was it a Boxster? I saw a silver colored one near that area this evening. Also spotted a dark blue Jag XF and the X6M on ECR today.

Are you sure you spotted a dark blue XF or was it by any chance, the black one?
If the car was indeed a dark blue one, then it seems to be a new addition to the city. Any pics mate?

I'm sure it was dark blue. Sorry mate, couldn't take pics as it was on the opposite side, but I managed to snap this beast: the sane and mature brother of the Supersports . Saw this today on ECR as well.

Thats a nice pic mate. One of my friends from Chennai said he spotted the red GT-R few days back on the Nungambakkam High Road. But sadly he couldn't manage to snap it.

I'm always saying that I do not like sports cars, or most super cars, and never did, but I saw a Maserati in Singapore a couple of weeks ago, and couldn't help a drool. Mind you, it was more of a very, very sleek saloon than a sports car --- and nothing outrageous. Understated to perfection
