Speed Yellow looks awesome on the CS. Never think I would have the balls to own a car in that color though.

Nice pictures Dante. I'm surprised it has a decently big boot! I saw the new Cayman S in white, at the Porsche showroom today. It was looking gorgeous!

The rear trunk can hold a medium to large-ish sized suitcase easily. The boot at the front can only hold a carry-on bag though.

Thank you all guys.


Initial review.
The photograph don't even show 10% of cars beauty. When i saw the car i was like " Oh my god!" It is so beautiful, cannot be descirbed in words. I got goose bumps! Actually the intial pics were taken by my younger brother. Cleaning and polishing process was ongoing. I reached at 11, and got my car at 2. Delivery papers were signed. I was explained the features of the car.
Good thing is that a got portable compressor for filling up the air. A puncture repair kit. A complimentary dashboard protector.

Now was the time when i was suppose to take it for a spin. I was a bit numb or ecstatic, nervous .. mixed feelings. I sat in the car very low, getting in the car is difficult and getting out as well. Its like a bucket where you are sucked in. The accelrator pedal and clutch are not light but pretty rough. You have to put pressure.

I pressed the clutch ignited the engine and vrooom.. Oh god what a sound! It's very loud compared to 911. I travelled around slowly, a bit scared of the traffic. And then came this marine drive, the sales guy asked me to push the pedal so i did - The car just catapulted me forward. Wow it was just like a rollercoaster ride. You can feel the piston thumping. The sound is orgasamic. Your heartbeats rise. It calls for more, give me more! It just doesn't stops. The acceleration pedal is very sensitive and steering is super responsive. The co-passenger definetly gets so scared. Its an opportunity of a lifetime to experience a sports car.

The car quietly travels when you want it to and beacomes a beast when you need. I travelled in 6th gear at 50 Kmph and even in 1st gear and it pulled herself marvellously. It has so much power you can't even use 30% of its petential. Switch on second gear even at 15kph engine doesn't knocks. The ride is pretty rough, as obvious in sports car. You feel every pothole. Thats what i love about Porsche. What a raw feeling! Very good.

I drove all the way to nasik myself which was 200km. And the best was kasara ghat which comes in between nasik and mumbai highway, its a two-lane highway now. The car was roaring all the way running up, drifting, spinning..
I had this feeling only in my dreams. I am happy that i lived it.
I have already done 500kms in 1 and half day.

Now when i drove my swift i felt like i am driving a truck sitting so high and slow!

If people want me to upload videos i can upload drifting videos and best exotic photos.
