I happen to spot a Porsche Cayman at the Jubilee Hills Chk Post Petrol Stn. I think this guy also owns an AUDI TT white. I just happen to have a couple of pics of the Cayman..had the pic of the Audi too but lost it. I am sorry abt that
Since it's the Checkpost petrol bunk, I'm assuming either unleaded or Speed. But to maintain good sports cars, the recommended fuel is a special performance one that's available (I think) in just one place in Hyderabad.
