Scorcher,

That's not a Turbo next to Dante's Cayman. That's a 997 type 911 Targa. Notice this carefully, there is a chrome strip that runs along the top part of the window-sill. That is an indication that it's a Targa.

Albeit i have done the balancing, no problem found.

@ Suhaas why don't you check out supercar rally thread. There are many over there.

Here are some anyway.

Dante,

I'm terribly sorry man! I know how it would feel! You need to keep your eyes peeled all the time! A slight lapse could result in such dents! But it's alright, take good care of her!

Exactly you need not even that close to tell its not a 911 turbo just look at the side lights on the bumper. those lights give it away.


And yes the chrome strip give it away as a targa.
But suhaas i can see a chrome detailing package available while customising a normal 911 on the porsche website !

For that matter even the carrera 4 has a chrome strip running on its window sill.

Yup! The chrome detailing package is available as an option on the list. But I'm not sure if people actually go in for that. I'm not a fan of that to be honest!

But the Carrera 4 doesn't come standard with the chrome strip, I'm quite sure about that! The only thing by which one can differentiate the C2 and the C4 is that the C4 comes with wider rear wheel-arches and wider rear body-work in order to accommodate the fatter tyres. The regular Carrera S comes with 295 sections at the back but the Carrera 4 comes with 305 sections at the back!

Oh and all Targas come standard with four-wheel-drive!

OT: It's a wonderful car! The Sport Classic is based on the 997 II Carrera but draws inspiration from the fantastic '70s 911 Carrera 2.7 RS. Classic Fuch wheels, the ductail spoiler and its bubble roof are it's distinctive features.

There is a thread on the Sport Classic with some inputs from my side. Do check it out!

I think that was a temporary number plate! Awesome pics of your car bro. I was chilled deep down my spine when I saw the last pic with B/W effects in Dippy's last post in Mumbai Supercar run thread. Beautiful car, Kudos.

Yes buddy that was the temporary number plate. The car had problems with registeration on road, so it finally got registered after a month and half.

Happy to see Dante enjoying the cayman.

I think the rim can be rectified by the workshop. I hope so.

Dante do write about living with the car on day to day basis, it will be such a nice contribution for people planning to buy the sports car in India, especially the onces checking 370Z's competition.

All the best!

I repaired the rim myself in my factory. Had to make a dye for it, which took 3 days in the making, and then finally the rim was molded.

Well i hardly drive it now. But once a week when i do, its very refreshing. Actually i am pretty opposite to everyone, i drive when i am somewhat tired, because after a spirited drive i get all rejuvenated.
