Please update us what we were missing from some time. also please let us know your plans for the 2014 collection.
I will try and update the thread with pictures as and when possible. The GTR departure is part of a bigger reshuffle and a couple of more cars are likely to departe , to make space for the F12 for sure, with a helping of a Turbo S or GT3 , or maybe even something more unique as the Morgan Aero Super Sport.

Sad to hear the GTR is leaving your collection, but I know you're gonna replace it with something way more awesome . May I ask which other cars you're thinking of letting go besides the GTR? I'm not sure I know all the cars you have in your garage currently.

Whoever buys that GTR is gonna be one happy chap with the power it outputs!

Morgan Aero SS! Now that's one beautiful (and powerful) car ! The turbo s or GT3 are good, but this would be something else, unique for sure !
This thread is now going to be a daily visited one


EDIT : Did a Weismann cross your mind when you thought about the Morgan,as Morgan and Weismann are pretty similar cars I guess ? Just curious

Even I know about this list. Why I wanted to hear from him is to know updated info (in case of any change). No offence intended.

Yes I did consider that , but in hind sight it is better that it is off the list as they just went bankrupt.

Ecks.. Umm, returns!

Welcome back Karan!

Did you say you're making space for a 911? The new 991 Turbo is a stunning bit of kit! Naffing fast too! The GT3 though, would guarantee exclusivity! It should be the only one in the country!

GT3? I am sure you are confusing yourself between the Carrera 4 GTS and the GT3.
Attaching a couple of pictures of the C4GTS I found on the Supercars and Exotics in Chandigarh Facebook page

Ji Suhaas, I am indeed tempted by Porsche once again. Deciding between the GT3 for it's sound and pure driving experience vs the Turbo S , for it's sheer speed and bang for the buck!

Ohh, I remember reading somewhere that the 7 was replaced by the A8. Anyways thanks for clearing it !

And about Turbo S's bang for the buck, am I the only one who feels its tad a bit overpriced at 3.5cr? Or it is THAT serious amazing?


EDIT: Just realized it does naught to hundred in below 3sec. Thats LP700 territory!
BTW Any idea about the GT3's price point?

Turbo S , as per Porsche India's website, starts from 2.6cr , ex showroom. When I think of bang for the buck , I only mean ex-showroom and not OTR. So I am not sure if 3.5cr is loaded price + OTR or just one of the two. Since the Turbo S already comes preloaded with all the performance goodies , I would assume that with reasonably good loadings it would be around the 2.8 or 2.9cr mark? And keep in mind this is with the now - imposed 150 odd % Duties and weak rupee. Still I feel that it is a good deal , as the Turbo S , in my own opinion , is more drivable and grabs relatively less attention than it's Italian contemporaries.

And yes , for bragging rights alone the Turbo S would do 0-60mph is the 2.7 sec range without a problem. Porsche has usually been under rating those times for the Turbo's of late. =)
