Default Porsche 911 Carrera S in delhi

Spotted - yesterday, 1st of april

Location - Safdurjung enclave, New Delhi

Car - brand new 911 carrera S with hardly 300kms on the odo

Colour - Dark blue, with red/tan interiors which reek quality.

Acc. - optional chrono, a louder freeflow (not yet arrived)

Passengers - 3 (me, owner, owners son)

Hell. This is the car to buy.
This car is owned by my Fufa who lives in New Delhi.
We went to his house for dinner, after which we went for a short drive (10km actually but it felt short) during which i felt queasy and as if i would throw up any second.
Speeds of 150 were easily acheived in Delhi traffic and right now i am at a loss of words on how to describe the car.
The car is a dark blue one and unfortunately i did not have a camera with me.
The exaughst is loud, real loud and the best part is that he is planning on getting a louder one.
If any body catches this beauty, do take pics and on my side, i have asked for some...
cheers
(damn... i have absolutely no words to describe the feeling i got when i went for teh drive... hence the short post (atleast for a 911 drive)
Will post more once i digest the experience.

Oh and there is another silver 911S (new shape), doing rounds of delhi too.

Now that i am feeling more up to it let me describe the experience.
As you walk up to the car, you instantly recognise the shape as that of a Porsche. So far, Porsche is only offering us the 911 S in the 911 line up.
This specific blue car however was ordered straight from Germany by the owner and not Shreyans motors which is the official dealer for Porsche in New Delhi and also the preffered choice of getting the car to Delhi by most owners.
The car is powered by a 3.8 lt flat six cylinder engine which produces 355 BHP and 40.78 KGM of torque and is powerfull enough to make you quesy everytime you accelerate.
The acceleration is pure bliss and the car does a 0 - 150 quite fast as we found out in delhi traffic and that too was not in sport mode.
For the little time gaps when i would see my fufas face when he was driving, i could see nothing but pure happiness.
As i could not drive it, i really cannot comment but he says that the car is a brialliant drivers car and the steering is razor sharp and provides exceptional feedback.
The exaughst has a nice raspy note but he has gone ahead and ordered a louder free flow.

Coming to the interiors, the car is nicely done up in a tan colour.
Ithas a six speaker bose system which is simply awesome.
The seats adjust for height and all and are very supportive but around some fast turns, they could have been better.
The car comes with the optional chrono metre but i was unable to test it but the overall quality of the interior was impressive and later when i sat in his S class, i found the porsche to be of better quality and matter of factly some portion of the dash was leather covered.

The only sore point about the car was that the rear looked a bit boring and that it touched the ground everytime it was being taken out of the compound.
Will post pictures once i get them.

Well, i asked his son to take a couple of pics and when i get them, i will put them up.
Lol, my Fufa must have kept it as a surprise.
Anyway, the number is 911 so guys look out.
The car only had 209 km on it when i went for a drive.
This is not an April fools joke.
