As the luxury car markets emerge in China and India, luxury carmakers are working to keep up with the demand. Those who live in Chennai, India, for example, will wait an estimated 500 days for their new Porsche, as each car is custom made. That is over a year…I hope there are a variety of Porsche rentals available to hold residents over until their Porsches are delivered! Exotic car rentals make everything better.
Yes, Chennai’s wealthy now have access to five of the top luxury vehicles available from Porsche in 37 variations, including:
• Porsche Boxster S
• Porsche Cayman S
• Porsche 911
• Porsche Panamera
• Porsche Cayenne
Porsche actually inserted itself into the Indian luxury car market back in 2003 with a dealership outlet in New Delhi. Porsche has robust expansion plans and hopes to sell 500 units in India this year, a tall order considering the 130 units that were sold in 2010. Will the people of Chennai decide that a Porsche is worth the wait? Porsche is not, after all, the only luxury carmaker on the scene. The competition is fierce and includes BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and perhaps even Bugatti India, if you can believe it.
The brand will also be introducing Porsche luxury hybrid cars to India over the next year, which is fairly reflective of what other top luxury carmakers are doing as luxury hybrids begin to gain attention and affection from the market. Porsche also has plans to open new retail outlets in Kochi, Ahmedabad, Chandigarh and Pune, indicating a positive future outlook for growth in the Indian luxury car market.
