That looks like a Z4 to me too! AFAIK, only the Z4 comes standard from the factory with those sort of wheels. I would be chuffed if they did come on the F10, though!

It's a real pity. Bangalore, I think, has a few air-cooled 911s. It's good to see this person use his 993 and even bring it down south. Air-cooled Porsches are quite hard to maintain. The service costs hit the roof, even in places like UK and France.

Thats interesting. Read a lot about the lower maintenance costs of Porsches. Have seen a large number of Porsches of various vintage being used in California as daily transport. Looks like 'lower maintenance cost' is a relative term !.

OT: Well, when you compare it to other cars in its league, it's less costly. But when you consider the price of a 993/964 after depreciation and then calculate the costs of service/maintenance, it's quite expensive. They are, however, a lot easier to maintain when compared to cars in the same league.

That's one of the reasons why Porsche resorted to water-cooling once the 993 was phased out. Apart from new and stringent emission norms as well.

That Miata is a great catch I must say. One of my fav roadsters of all time.

The Z4 looks awesome in white. Have only seen blue ones till date.

Is there any SLK 500 model? I don't think so. They have the 5.5 liter NA V8 in the SLK55.

Yes there is. Here's the link, sir !
500 SLK

EDIT: Checked wiki and there's nothing mentioned on the SLK class page. Strange that merc website has a page. Mods delete this post if necessary.
