    I find this theft puzzling. In the US, cars of this nature (unique and easily identified) are rarely stolen. Most often cars are stolen to be used in a commission of a crime. Porsche’s are useless for that purpose. Also, they are of little value to disassemble for parts.  

    Breaking into a home while the owners are home just to steal the car is so fraught with risk makes me wonder what the true motive is. 

    Possible motives...

    1.Extortion. Criminals will contact original owner and request big amount of money for safe return of the car.

    2.Car is already in Russia, middle east or some God forsaken part of the world. Some criminally involved person wanted to drive 991.2 GT2 RS. He contacted his fellow criminal associates and they stole the car for a price(usually for about 20% of car original value).

    3. Well... As a former Lawyer I have some things on my mind but, better not to talk about it...

    Is this a behavior only found in Europe?

    I guess one could apply the same logic to US school shootings.

    We only have shootings in gun free zones. Everywhere else you and your car are perfectly safe. (Do we really need to school another European on basic freedoms and self defense here in the US?  Worry about your next knife bans instead please)  cheers and please have a sense of humor.

    After a couple weeks in southern Spain where my dad lives in a gated community (Soto Grande) behind a locked gate and several locked doors I am glad to be back in Kansas where I can leave my garage door open for days while out of town and not one person would walk into my house.  People are just not as desperate in the Midwest I guess. 

    On a related note my manual turbo is safe mostly because so few know how to drive a manual in the US. 

    I would bet that the RS will be found in the next day or two. Perhaps not in good shape however. I hope it is fine and not damaged. If not I would give up my spot to give you a replacement. Keep in mind I have been waiting for decades. Good luck!!!

    Rather strange that they kept the car local and drove it around. I mean it's such a unique car. Maybe they're not as professional as we first thought.

    Its not about being less deperate in the midwest, its that the midwest is nowere, you cant cant compare it to Soto Grande, which is the type of area that attracts criminals, midwest does not, and yet there is plenty of crime and violence in the midwest, I lived there for 6 years.

    As someone that has lived in both sides of the ocean for many years I can say without a doubt that the crime rates, the violence of the crimes, violent deaths, social and racial conflict and violence in general is much higher overall in the US on average. There are better and worse places on both sides but on average there is no comparison.

    Just compare how the US cops need to act compared to EU cops that some don' t even carry guns or never have to use it because we dont have an arms race here. In the US the same situation of breaking into your house while you sleep would of probably been done at gunpoint and with violent consequences, instead of the stealthly m.o. like it was done to Kobalt...

    Our experiences are different. I agree there are good places and rough places on either side of the ocean. I lived in Europe for more than a few years. I grew up there so we both have some extensive experience but it is anecdotal in either case.   Neither of us will solve any problems or change the others mind. IMHO as someone who owns no guns I simply prefer freedom to own one and a basic kitchen knife as well.  I’m more paranoid of bad people with bad intentions than of guns. Cheers.

    Mike, you’re  a puzzle. You live and act a center to center life yet you hold very conservative views. Fascinating.

    That is generous! Thanks.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    If they are driving it locally then they surely do not give a toss which is a worry for the condition of the car when returned.

    Kobalt, really hope it’s a good outcome. Surely Porsche would give you a slot on the second run kiss..

    hopefully they didn’t threatened you to get the keys .....

    why is it taking so long to get it localized ?

    good that you+family are ok, the rest is second order. a friend of mine was robbed in italy recently, the thugs entered into their house during the night, came into the bedroom and sprayed some kind of knock-out gas onto him and his wife. the couple woke up in the morning, totally dizzy, their house was emptied out even of furniture and the car was gone....things are getting ugly....

    Don't give up so easy. Go to Porsche directly once it's determined the car is lost for good. I would start the process now with Porsche and push back on any resistance.

    Sure - they insist when you install it to not showing you where , to avoid you to disclose after.

    now it is self alimented , no need for supply. This piece can be set almost everywhere.

    But I suspect for Kobalt those are professionals anyway.

    any good news ?

    No news today except that we now know more exactly when they took the car.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    **** Update

    We have witness that have seen the car yesterday, Saturday, in the north of Norway: Mo i Rana - Altshaug somewhere.

     

    Yes, sounds highly unlikely but the witness seemed to be sure.

    simply horrible - even when he would get the car back it's never the same !

    What does Porsche say - will they be able to replace it ? my friend's M3 got stolen once and "luckily" it was after the 4 weeks the insurance company has the right to bring it back when they located the car in France - so he could get a new one......
