Suggestions for a new car

The criteria it has to meet are: 1. It has to be a little unique. 2. It has to be under 1 crore. 3. Has to have atleast 300 HP. 4. Should have really good mod potential. and any other brand except a porsche. I had a few cars in mind, some being: 1. Evo X 2. BMW M3 3. Corvette 4. Nissan GTR Problem is that i dont know if the corvette or the GTR would be less than a crore. Any other suggestions you guys could give would be helpful. Btw is there anyone on this forum who actually imports cars w2ho can let me know prices. Thanks

I am curious as to why you are asking for advice on which non-Porsche sports car to buy on a Porsche forum? It doesn't make that much sense.

Profiles says he lives in California, yet he's asking about prices in Indian Rupees... Just looked up the conversion and 1 crore is worth just over $200k in usd. He can get something much better than a vette for that kinda money.... Somethings not right here....

Wikipedia....A crore (Hindi: करोड़) (often abbreviated cr) is a unit in the Indian numbering system equal to ten million (10,000,000; 107), or 100 lakh. It is widely used in Bangladesh, India, Nepal, and Pakistan.
So it's a big number of...something, not sure what...probably a currency. Not a dumb question (when compared to the OP's!)

I would get a 2010 V8 Supercharged Land Rover Sport Autobiography edition with the 19 speaker upgrade pack :-) And then I would live in it.

Sounds like this guy has about 10000 crore's he would like to deposit in someones account for a small fee payable in cash directly to him.

He may live in CA now, but probably originally from Nigiera.

Thank you for the explanation! I had no idea what the hell he was talking about either.

To the OP, why did you exclude Porsches? Kind of strange question to ask on a Porsche board.

His profile also says he owns a Cayman. Yeah, uh huh.

I googled this clown "hostonbarry" and he's all over the place on all kinds of forums. Anyone seeing a pattern here?

I vote for Pakistan, number 17 on the list of world's most corrupt countries, and an emerging market for scammers that is out to challenge Nigeria (#18 on the list of most corrupt counties but an overachiever in scamming).

The comment about wanting to find someone who imports cars is another giveaway. Obviously there's no equivalent to EPA/DOT to worry about in Pakistan. You just put your order in with a thief who, through his criminal network, jacks one from another country and then imports it for you, greasing palms all along the way. Lots of stolen cars on the east coast get packed into containers exported to eager customers in Russia and other former Soviet republics, many of which are among the top 10 most corrupt.

Where's BruceLee when you need him... to give this a-hole the boot.
