    Re: Turbo spotted in UAE

    color???

    Re: Turbo spotted in UAE

    silver/tarracota.

    Re: Turbo spotted in UAE

    I dont think they will accept high payments to send the car so early and what next time you are talking about ?

    Edit : Why didnt you take a pic with your mobile phone ?

    Re: Turbo spotted in UAE

    good question

    Re: Turbo spotted in UAE

    nothing like the lifestyle of a truly big spender. you get your turbo 3 months ahead of everyone else! That is VIP.

    Re: Turbo spotted in UAE

    Prob a 996TT.

    Money opens all doors. The Veyron was also reported to be spotted on the roads there long before it was spotted it arrived in other countries.

    Techart offers "997" kits for the 996, so the answer probably lies somewhere in that direction.

    There is no 997 Turbo customer car in UAE. Maybe there was somebody from Porsche Middle East paying a visit in such a car, there may be one or two for testing/showing off over there.

    That can be the case, though I wouldn't be suprised if the car turned out to be owned by a private person. People down in UAE are pretty serious when it comes to cars.

    Re: Turbo spotted in UAE

    you guys give me couple of days only.. I'm trying to spot him again to take photos.. I think i know where to find him. I heard it was shipped from germany probebly by airplane??

    Re: Turbo spotted in UAE

    He is probably royalty and has a couple CGTs in the garage... and is personal friends with the big shots in germany. I would not be surprised.

    The only chance a private person would have, is to get a car for reviewing it from a customer's point of view before the launch. It happened before but it happens very seldom and usually only to very good customers or people who are personal buddies of some people high up in the Porsche hierarchy. However this means that this isn't his own car but he is allowed to drive it for testing purposes.

    If you can get a shot of this car, incl. the license plates, I may be able to find something out. Even better: get me the VIN and I tell you almost everything.

    Re: Turbo spotted in UAE

    These things do occur. I know of certain Ferrari's that have reached private owners a week or two before the unveiling. In that case it was a Swiss gentelman who currently owns 98 ferraris and is my neighbour. Similar story with the SLR 2 people recieved it when it was still at the concept stage back in in early 2000 2001. I think it is absolutely possible for Porsche to do the same for a very important customer.

    Re: Turbo spotted in UAE

    money talks...

    Re: Turbo spotted in UAE

    very very true in regards to the veyron--- but of course that is the case with EVERYTHING. If you have the money and the connections- you can get something before the release date (legally) and show it off to everyone. There was a bugatti blue veyron in Las Vegas (owned it had a license plate and everything) around October last year--- a few think it's is Dave Wynn's.)

    I suppose your kids didn't get to see those when they were young? I agree...some pictures are a little bit offensive but I'd say that this specific avatar is at the limit between good taste and hardly acceptable.
    I'm not sure why adult men would use these kind of avatars but if the users like them and they're not more offensive than this one, this is fine to us.

    that's why i'm not allowed to go to shopping malls. UAE is becoming a melting pot, you barely see locals around
