I'm quite surprised as well. I'd heard that a showroom was planned some time ago. Bangalore would be the third city to have 'The Porsche Centre' in India. I guess it hasn't materialized yet. Sad.

Oh and I've noticed that you've started to take a liking to Pokers? That's nice dude! And by the way, I've always liked Lamborghinis right from the start! I mean, who doesn't!

Good to know, Manish! Could you PM me the list by relating them to their colours? Or something?

Oh thats gonna be lovely!! Owner was telling it was his childhood dream to pick up a Beetle.

There was a Lotus Elan in Mumbai too which was lying around in Juhu, then probably shifted to Mahim. That was the only Lotus Elan in Mumbai. Probably the same one may now be in Bangalore.

Well, life's changed after attending the Mumbai supercar show last month. I heard and saw various Porsches closely. From the Cayman to the targa and even the 911 turbo! And then i realized Ferdinand Porsche wasn't really thinking about the VW Beetle while designing his cars

Apparently, Porsche insist on having 4 cars fully paid up in stock in the showroom. This means tying up neary 8 Crs. That plus limited sales flow is hard on cash flw considering the investment

Good to know! After all, the 911 (over the years) and the Cayman/Boxster and the Carrera GT speak for themselves. There is more to the 911 apart from being inspired by the Beetle!

And I'm sure the showroom floor would be on lease so that's added costs right there. You're right, Ajmat. But I do hope Porsche set up shop here soon. There are plenty of pot-holed roads that one can TD the Cayenne on!
