Hey Kavit, its already been discussed and confirmed that this is not the car that was present at the Speedrun 2004. The car which was present at the Speedrun 2004 was a different car but possibly of the same model.

Hey Lambo,

When i used to stay at your bldg i remember that there was a lot of work going on with the car, and it was probably giving him a lot of problems..... but when i was in bay last, in aug/sept i saw his car out on the streets practically every night!...so that was good!
cheers

well rehaan
when i sat in the porsche with him he said that hes willing to spend money onm the car and nothing mtches a porsche
the car was in bad condition when i saw it but it was fast as hell and did 70-70 kmph in the small lane before the bus stop
the car is now in working condition an seems the be maintained really well - body , interiors but not sen the engine properly
when i meet him next, i wil ask him if i can take pics from inside and engine ...
but luckily for me i gety a good view of the car from my bldg but as he hasnt used it for some time - must be out of town - its covered

Cars looks rather tired, judging by the amount of balancing weights on the wheel, it must have taken quite a few knocks!

Lambo,
Ur neighbours is not a turbo, its a 944S.
Even otherwise its not ditto, its got a huge disadvantage (its LHD!!!)
And i think the tires he has are Falkens.
