Abandoned Porsches Of India, The Junkyard Is Not Where They Belong

Pictures of these abandoned exotics are a heartbreaking sight for any enthusiast

It’s no secret that people who buy Porsche’s are enthusiasts at heart, but when we see them lying out in the open and rusting away painfully, we have to question the enthusiasm of the owners.

Indians pay one of the highest taxes on imported cars in the world. That may make you think that the owners of these luxury cars keep their vehicles in top-notch condition and use them for as long as possible. These pictures by RIP_Car of CBU Porsche cars tell a different story though.
