My friend who works at AUDI in Mumbai was telling me that when he had gone to deliver the AUDI A8 to acustomer, he saw a Porsche 911 Carrera 4 parked outside that person's office. Think about it - 355 bhp, 4-wheel drive...how come we never see cars like these at Speed RUN?

Hey turbo,
not seen the black STS butthe one i am talking about is green.
Turbo V12, try and see if you can get some pictures.
The owners dont want their beauties to get scratched so therefore dont get them to speed runs where everyone can paw at their car.
But that is what i think.

The 996 Carrera 4 is actually 320 bhp. The 355 bhp cars are only the new gen 997 Carrera S models. Was it a black one? I remember seeing that one on my first TB meet ever.

Hey lambo
This is cool man. First tbhpian with access to a true supercar.

car was that the rear looked a bit boring and that it touched the ground everytime it was being taken out of the compound.
Pls ask your FUFA to be careful with the 911. We dont want this precious metal to get all scraped up do we? Next time you go to visit him, get an in-car video!
How does it handle the speed bumps? Did he get the suspension raised?? I think the S models have sport suspension package, which means the car is probably further lowered from stock.

Default Spotted the Porsche 911 Carrera S in New Delhi

Me and my friend were on Maya Puri Road when we were stunned to see a blue Porsche 911 Carrera S coming out of a....well dusty street in Maya Puri Indl Area in West Delhi.
My mouth remained open for atleast 10 mins....not because we had just seen a supercar...but to look at how the guy pulled the damn set of wheels....absolutely amazing.
he must have reached like 80-90 ks but the acceleration of that beast was mind blowing...
the guy was spacing between the traffic to do short sprints....finally it was waiting for the signal at the Maya Puri X-ing and we parked our bike right next to it. we couldnt help but stare at those huge rims it had...
But sadly, I must add the co-passenger wasnt quite nice....while we were looking at the car, after a while he rolled down his window and asked us if there was a scratch [i think he had just scraped the rear fender a little....had a 1-inch long thick scratch on the body... ] and rolled the windows back up again....anyways was a real nice experience....sorry but no pics!
i remember reading abt the porsche in lambo's thread. may be it is his fufa's ride. couldnt read the reg no.

beautiful PORSCHE!!!
