Its a standard cayman S and not a 911 wrapped by D.A.D.

Ohh I thought it was the same car as in the above video. The first impression appeared that it was a 911 while I was driving past.

I dread to think of the cringe on the face of the poor guy who drives in to a big khadda/pothole because the Cayman has a very low clearance.

Attaching a photo to illustrate it since my Note 2 phone from Samsung is quite taller than the actual ground clearance of the car.

The first lot of Macan S Diesels have landed at Mumbai port. And from the looks of it, the price can safely be speculated in the 64Lac rupee ballpark for the Diesel S.

The ground clearance is no where as bad as it looks in the picture. The Cayman will cross most speed breakers in Mumbai just like a regular car without bottoming out. Short wheelbase helps quite a bit as well.

Nope, you're not alone. The pricing is absolutely absurd. Pricing it above the Cayenne makes no sense.
Maybe they were expecting all of us to believe too that Macan is a sportscar as they were marketing it.

Its priced above the Cayman and the Boxster too. Porsche's logic has gone straight out of the window!

90 lakhs for the CLA45 AMG and now 1 crore and above or the Macan. Dreams are coming crashing down as both are vehicles I was considering on purchasing. I like the humour in the sentence "Prices are in line with the Indian requirement". They sure are talking to the wrong group of Indians.

Thats not the "Martini Edition". Just a run-off-the-mill Cayman S with a wrap on it.
