Buyers Guide for Porsche

Porsche Porsche Porsche… If you are wondering what am I doing then I just want to tell you that go to Microsoft Word and type Porsche and even that dumb software will pay it the due respect. So everything’s been said and done about this company let me not ruin it by saying anything more about it from this very little mouth of mine. So what we are dealing with today are those ultra cool, luxurious and elegant vehicles of the company, which have been derived out of the sheer brilliance of the engineer working continuously to provide the customer all the upbeat technology.

Porsche Panamera

So, its time to deal with the most expensive Porsche. Whoa… Rs 1.45 crores, how does that sound to you? I know it sounds like hell of money. I don’t know about you but atleast I am expecting a great deal out of this car. To start with, people have some issues with the looks of this car but I guess it looks exactly as it should. This four door Porsche is available in two trims but with a single engine option that is the V8 petrol engine. I really don’t have any doubt about the performance of this car. From inside this car will greet you with each and every upbeat feature. Every corner of this car is screaming out loud that you are inside a luxurious saloon. So, this car according to me is an ideal crossbreed of luxurious saloon and sports car.

Porsche Cayenne

So the first thing that I noticed about this Porsche SUV is its dynamic looks. These looks however have been hounded by the round of debates that has been circling since its inception time but for me this SUV is an absolute brilliance. This SUV is available in 4 variants and also in a hybrid shell as well. Performance of each and every variant will leave you breathless. In fact the upbeat variant of this SUV i.e Porsche Cayenne offers a performance that is seen only in super cars. Interiors obviously has to be porsche (no pun intended), but what it offers you is even more than what you expect out of it. Handling is great and the only problem I could figure out is the same, that the looks could have been better but that is not what I intended to say, that is what some people cry about. So, you need to figure out where you stand.

Porsche 911

‘Somebody call 911!’, but this it’s not shawty, it the very Porsche 911. So, according to me it is the most usable and practical super car available in the market. This car is supposed to have its engine on the wrong side, but surprisingly this car has all the right moves (once again no pun intended). Ok, let us move further beside the looks and the controversy. This car is supposed to posses immensely powerful engines. Available in three variants this car comes right from Rs 79.5 lakhs to Rs 1.3 crore. There’s is no point in talking about the interiors as we know it has to be good and elegant.
