Default Another Porsche 911-997 spotted!

The silver 911-997 which has been making rounds of Mumbai is not alone anymore!

While i was heading towards South Mumbai today, my eyes caught sight of a familiar sillhouete in black. Closer observation revealed the criminal. It was the new 997-911.

Chasing it down to Worli Seaface i caught a glimpse of a man behind the wheel of the beast. The editor (now ex?) of Overdrive Adil Jal Darukhanwala who was giving the car a thorough workout.

Keep a lookout for the car in your part of town. Sorry, no pics since i don't carry a digicam with me. But some of the mods here do, so i am expecting the usual suspects to present the evidence this time as well.

Keep Revvin(TM)
