Why I think the Cayman is perfect for India? It's an awesome handler and, in the hands of a good driver, can apparently give 911's a run for their money. Porsche intentionally "despec'ed" the Cayman S to keep a justifiably performance advantage for the 911. I think this is the ideal "first" sportscar for anyone in India. Not as wild as the 911, yet so much fun to drive. Proof that the most powerful car isn't necessarily the most exhilarating.

I guess it's available with a manual transmission too . That's a deal maker if I ever saw one for the purists.

Nice catch!
That looks like Beyond Coffee. The person seems to be in love with that place!( 'coz both, the Rapide and the silver XF-R, belong to the same garage and i clicked the Jag at the very same place!)

That's true, it is available with a straight-forward six-on-the-floor manual tranny for the purists. However, apparently Porsche insist and urge their customers in India to opt for the auto-tranny. Their argument is that the clutch on the manual car would wear out in no time, especially if the car is used often in bumper-to-bumper Indian traffic.

The PDK is as good, or one might say, even better than the manual 'box now. But nothing like the feel of swapping cogs with a proper H-gater.

That's a wonderful colour on a supremely gorgeous car. The Aston Rapide has oodles of appeal. Just look at it! It's such a beautifully crafted piece of art.

I couldn't agree with you more GTO sir ! Like i have mentioned before, the owner who is a famous Young Actor lives a few blocks down the lane from mine and i never let down an oppurtunity to drool over his garage whenever i used to pass by his place (which i am certain almost everytime i step out of my house).

The Porsche shares its garage with a F01 BMW 750li and a Q7 3.0 TDI, a Harley Nightrod to name a few and all of them are in Black Colour !

Sadly the Actor has moved to an other home and so has his rides.

A friend just spotted a Black Murcielago on the ORR - the lambo took a right towards Bangalore. No number plates. Apparently this was driven by a girl.

Spotted a 2 Volvo XC90's, Audi Q7 and Fiat 500. Even though not so exotic these days (due to the regular sighting of them), but still they've got a road presence, especially Audi Q7.

+1 Nikhil.

Q7's are not a rare sight in Hyderabad any more,at least at Banjara hills.In-fact Hyderabad has more no. of Q7's than 5 and 6 put together.

The ratio could be 10:2:1 (7:6:5)

Forgot posting this sighting earlier:
Spotted a Silver Supra opposite Sarvi, Banjara Hills the other day. It was about 3 days back. Missed posting it here. Could not read the number or take a snap, but have to commend the way it was driven. It has amazing Exhaust Note, but wasn't abused badly. It was driven with sheer confidence and poise. Loved seeing one of my fav. cars again.

True Waseem Bhai, spotting these don't give that adrenaline rush these days. It's just a normal car passing by.

girl? Uh, Sorry.

Does that mean the DL all-black LP640 is sold to H'bad? You guys are damn lucky to have all those tons of exotics lurking around you.
