I feel it's because the LP560-4 ensures greater sales. The LP 640 is probably too impractical for Indian roads. But I'm sure it's not much of a hassle for ecksreturns since he lives in a very well-planned city viz. Chandigarh where the quality of roads too is commendable for an Indian city.

Thanks for sharing those lovely pictures. I like the Lambo in green. It looks evil in that color. Why arent there any LP 640's? That's one beast which can mark an even better impact.

The Porsche was a road show type event, I was there. It was only to show different models. This lambo event was more track experience in their cars. I really missed out on this event, wish I could have gone.

Wow that's some real nice coverage.But just one thing they should have definitely brought along a LP640 or LP670(i wish).
Would have been infinitely more fun.
I loved the yellow the best.

I wasn't there but the magazine reviews stated that there were several Slalom runs and Gymkhana style runs as well! The Cayenne were bashed around a small off-road course and the sports cars at the event were thrashed around some cones. Are you sure?

The Ferrari Magic Discovery Drive was definitely a road show. But the Porsche event was more than just a road show of sorts!

Awesome video spoiled by some typical amateur journalism. The guy's description of the MMSC track would make one feel that it's a pasteur.
And he actually called motoring editors "conniving SOB's".
