Where is Dante? I need back up here! Hehe..

But truth be told, all 911s look the same and most cars across the Porsche range have similar design elements.

Very true the 911 looks really the same over the years.Nothing has changed much but for the subtle changes which makes it look as if it has grown into a gentleman.

@Suhaas : All and I mean ALL Porsches look same. Going a bit OT here but nonetheless, to be brutally honest, who here believes that each different porsche has a different identity to a layman? not even the panamera for Pete's sake has a USP of its own. Its just a PORSCHE to everyone. Atleast they can change something. I think the design department at PORSCHE has been fired.

Well, I do agree with you on the design being similar on Most Porsches, the 911 is a 911 and should continue to look like how it does! I do not care about the Cayman, Cayenne or the Panamera. But the 911 looks the way it should! Porsche's design department could have changed the way the 911 looks but I'm glad they didn't. The kind of heritage and legacy that the 911 possesses is unparalleled! The 911 is Epic. Period.

Ok this isn't a Porsche design department debate. But I'll concede that the entire range mimics the look of the 911. What Porsche should've done is kept the 911 look special and thought about some other designs for the other cars

+1. Well said!

About the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4. Does anyone have a clue if this orange Gallardo is still in Hyderabad or has it gone to some other city?

No offence bro, they might as well keep it, if it looked good in the first place. To me they look like an stretch of a beetle in a vacuum chamber and where the snout and the tail were made to extend horribly over the already present clutter. Frankly I still do not get the charm of a Porsche even now. You see, a Gallardo on road, will make you crib like a 5 yr old, but with a Porsche its just another sports car. But yes, the CGT makes more than a statement. I consider it the most beautiful looking supercar, but it in no way looks like a Porsche. :lol

Hi ,
Just out of curiosity .
Why do all these high-end cars have a T-board registration(particularly in Hyderabad) . Is it some kind of temporary registration ?
Or is it because if they register it T-Board they get some kind of excise duty or tax benefit on the CBU's ?
Regards
Arjun
