    Porsche in China

    Hello everyone, I'm back after almost two months of missing the forum. Because of work I have been in China for quite some time. I had to be also to the Shanghai Motorshow, very funy the way the chinese intentd the motoring..... But there it seems that there are no Porsche around.... in my time I have seen just two on the street. One Boxster S on the motorway and a very new Cayenne at the hotel entrance in Beijing. The Boxster in the very first day and the Cayenne in the veri l;as day! Also I'm shure that there are much more of them, in the motorshow Porsche said that they sell more or less 2000 of them in a year, but because of the way they drive there I don't blame them for not taking them out. I would never drive a Porsche in that traffic, better I will never ever drive there, also taking in account how cheap is the taxi costing. The life is full of "strange things" going around there and it looks that you are on another planet, but there are some very nice aspects of China and especially Shanghai is amaizing. Ok some pictures hope you enjoy them.

    for me was the first time to see the Cayman with the aero kit. to be honest I really don't like it. Especially the rear spoiler it looks like it is no big enough and at the same time not subtle enough so that you can ignore it. not that I like big spoilers just that it is kind of not right.

    some of my friends told me that there after you buy the car you have like one week that you have no number plates at all but you can drive your car on the street for until you get the number plates and insurance .... . this was in frnt of our hotel, and we have seen even other new cars on the street without number plates so it may be true.... but wired....

    Re: Porsche in China

    Thanks for the pics! Well done.

    I must say the models at the motor show are very classy indeed. (Any more pics of them? )

    I haven't been to China for more than 5 years and I suspect much has changed. Last time I was there, I was not only scared by the way people drive, I was also scared by the fact the roads are built without taking into account the needs of pedestrians! As a result many people would just cross the road in heavy traffic

    With the amount of money some individuals have access to in China, I expect Porsche to sell a few cars there!

    Hard to believe that china is making such a large mistake.

    With a command economy (with some capitalism and market forces), I would have thought that they would have done away with the auto industry and highways which lead to the dependence on foreign oil.

    If i were the top commie, I would have outlawed any highway construction or oil driven personal vehicles. Planned cities based on axis fed by hi-speed trains and circular monorails for in-city transport all powered by nuke plants.

    Ah, but you forgot the greed factor of the individual, right now China it is a free for all for all govt officials to get as much money as possibly from their positions.

    Highway/infrastructure construction is the TOP way of embezzling money from the government and stashing it away in foreign money havens!

    you are right because there is the "real China" when you go in province like Hefei for example, or another inner city and it starts to show you all those years of communism.... and that sometimes is really really sad....
