Yes, but I'll wait to see them on track. Besides, this isn't going to stand a chance against his other ride. Both go in the 3000cc+ class, and one is technically a 10 second car. And this isn't it.

Cincla, what news?

Default Seen it too...

My workplace is in Lavelle road and I have seen it parked outside my office once and seen it being driven once(although not floored to the ground). I must say, she's a looker.
But, I have seen the carrera cabriolet version in Mangalore way before this porsche came into Bangalore. I must say that was an awesome experience. I followed the car all around Mangalore on my puny but faithful Kinetic Honda. I couldn't sleep that night after looking at that navy blue open top beauty.

but believe me, travelling at 220km/h in 993 convertible, hearing the wail of the flat 6, smelling the hot oil and having to pick flies from your teeth is most pleasure

Couldn't agree more. I've ridden in two Porsches, both 993s. One was a Cabriolet and the other, a coupe. Probably had the best hour of my life, in them.

Thumbs up Pics: Porsche Carrera S in Bangalore

Hi Guys,

Spotted the Porsche Carrera S on Vidhana Soudha Road in Bangalore, quality of the snaps (kindly adjust), taken with my mobile and while in motion. Whew what a stunner

why would any one want an all time converti in india..most of the time you will roaming around with the top up..thats y coupe is the only way to go, until someone comes out with an SL style hard top converti..

I despise convertis especially in 911s, they just look over bloated all the time..

I wouldnt buy one..
