Cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar’s obsession with high-end vehicles is well-known. Since he is the brand ambassador of BMW India, most of the vehicles in his garage belong to the German luxury car brand. However, Sachin also owns a few vehicles from the other manufacturers. He used to own a Nissan GT-R and a Ferrari 360 Modena. This is the first time that he has been spotted in a Porsche 911 Turbo S.
Many do not know that Sachin owns a Porsche. He is a regular attendee of weekend drives and brings out his performance cars during the weekends. Recently, CS12 Vlogs spotted him driving a white Porsche 911 Turbo S in Mumbai. The spotter caught him driving on the Sea Link twice. While the face of Sachin is not visible clearly, the registration number belongs to SRT Sports Management, which manages Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar and the entity belongs to his wife Dr Anjali Sachin Tendulkar.
This is the first video of him showing him driving around in Mumbai. Sachin is driving an old Porsche 911 S Turbo that was registered in 2015. Interestingly, no one knows that he owns a Porsche 911 Turbo S in India. There are a few reports that mention that he owns a Boxster but this vehicle is spotted with him for the first time.
Porsche 911 Turbo S
This is not an ordinary Porsche 911. The Turbo S variant is much more powerful and generates a maximum power of 560 PS. It gets all the optional performance extras including a Sport Chrono pack. The sports car also gets an over-boost function that lifts peak pressure from 17.4 psi o 19.6 psi for a 20-second burst creating an exhilarating experience. During these 20 seconds of over-boost, the engine produces a massive 750 Nm of torque, up from 700 Nm. It only gets a 7-speed dual-clutch PDK transmission with automatic start/stop feature.
The official figures reveal that the car can do 0-100 km/h in just 3.1 seconds and the top speed is restricted to 318 km/h. The car rides on 20-inch wheels and also gets hub wheel locks. Porsche added the four-wheel steering system to the vehicle to make it agile during high speed runs. The four-wheel steering also reduces the turning radius of the car at slower speeds. The Turbo S variant can be identified with full LED headlamps with four-point daytime running lamps. It also gets a camera-based main beam control system that ensures that the road ahead is properly lit. At high speeds, the car creates more downforce by deploying a rear spoiler. It is a three-stage spoiler that can be in three positions depending on the speed of the car.
Sachin Tendulkar owns a slew of luxury vehicles and most of them are from BMW. The cricket legend owns the latest versions of BMW 7-Series Li, BMW X5M, BMW i8 and a BMW 5-Series. He also loves the BMW brand and privately imported a BMS X5M much before he became the brand ambassador of BMW India. Sachin also urged on his social media channels to help him locate his first car. He said that he misses his first vehicle, which is a Maruti 800 and wants it back.
