Default PORSCHE RS Spyder LM in Mumbai

there is a good chance that the Le Man Porsche RS Spyder makes it to PORSCHE Centre Mumbai Showroom by mid june for display purpose.
the best part is its not a Dummy car.

I think the earlier Red porsche for display at the showroom was a dummy car.

The Carrera GT was not a dummy car. It was driven to the showroom and back. It was seen being driven around.

What doc means that it is the original racing car with engine et al unlike the F1 cars which come on display which are just the chassis without an engine or tranny inside.

I agree, I think race cars will never come fully fitted (unless they are several years out of date), but just the shell. Street cars would almost always be in running condition.

Sigh! I never knew that certain display cars were dummies....dying to see a supercar shell is nothing but a cheap thrill!

Sorry guys,
the plan to get the RS had to be canned...
there were people who had come just to have a look at the facility to check whether it would be possible to roll push the car in showroom.
but unfortunately, they thought otherwise...

Did you guys see the New GTS Red car in the showroom? its just here for 1 day more before its delivered.
