As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I’m, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!
The company officially started the delivery of cars in India (previously the Porsches were imported by Precision Cars India ltd.) on the 1st of October.
The Stuttgart based company clocked 117 deliveries for the month and in the process surpassed the previous record of top monthly sales in the sub-continent.
