Cool

around end Nov, I saw a silver carrera 2 on KA plates at the Domlur crossing, 5 A.M. in the morning. the guy was out for a drive! I was riding my cousin's honda cbr600 RR (I was also out for a ride....when else can u get empty roads in b'lore) and we had animpromptu race upto marathalli. initial pick-up, the cbr screwed the porsche everytime, but the moment the prorshce snatched 3rd gear,I was HIsTORYYYYYYY man. What a car!

An easy way to tell if a Porsche has ceramic brakes (PCCB) is to look at the colour of the calipers. Red calipers = standard steel discs, yellow calipers = PCCB.

True say, Ashok. Or otherwise, just look at the colour of the disc itself. Darker, mature colours are seen on the carbon ceramic babies. The car in the first post features those darn £4000 brakes.

It is a 911 carrera S. Has a modified exhasut system + body kit + god knows what more. Owner is into very keen no holds barred modifications

Frankly -body kit spoils the cars lines

Dont be disaapointed ajmat from what i hear this car might be taking part in the bangalore drag , not to mention the supra .. Im praying for it actually .. A few guys are talking about setting standards in indian drag scene .. All in all should it happen we will certainly be in for a ball .. But i guess we might have to wait for the bangy round for this ..
