    If the tracking is still active then there is hope that they arent able to block the signal and their M.O. is to just parked it somewhere they can keep an eye on it for a few days first to see if its its localised and if not then its safe to take with them.

    Best of luck, keep us updated.

    Hopefully the situation gets resolved soon. Best of luck. 


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    OMG, you just got it and it's stolen? From you garage? Without the keys?

    Wow. Unbelievable how they can even do that.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    They broke in into our house, found the keys, took the car. (Can not be too specific at this point.)


    We know now thanks to tracker the first movements of the car.
    The car was later sighted by a young road working car guy on a small road.

    The road is Road 331 from Graninge. It was sighted about 8kms south of Graninge.

    According to my insurance company the cars are often parked somewhere cooling off for later dismantling.

    So right now we have the police, insurance company and the internet community involved.


    Thanks for the support, much appreciated!

    Unbelievable !!!! All fingers crossed for you . What a shock ! 

    Stealing such a car is either done by dumb people ( it will be very hard to sell ) or very very professional who have maybe already a client .... in an uncivilized country

    That is just steel box on wheels and it is insured. Everybody is safe, car found or not, most important is nothing happened to you and your family. Crazy story. Smiley

    Sorry to hear this. I hope it is found ASAP, in good condition. 


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    So sorry to hear this Kobalt. hopefully the police and insurance are able to track down the car and it's returned to you. Even scarier is the idea that someone went into your house. Thankfully nobody got hurt, who knows what people like that might be capable of doing to get their hands on what they want. Keep us updated on how it goes. 


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Sorry! Hope you get it back.

    It does not sound like something that happened just by chance . They probably knew Kobalt had that car and  they went for it . Now , how did they know ?

    Gnil:  It is unfortunately really easy to locate specific cars in Sweden thanks to our open society.

    We are happy that we keep our keys in an easy-to-find place for the thieves so we don't have to wake up with a couple of balaklava dressed guys on our bedroom.

    Anyway: The Police has been terrific, the insurance company too so far and even Porsche Sweden has done their best.

    Kobalt:

    Hi guys,

     

    The car was parked in my garage.

    It is being tracked as we speak - I'm hoping for a good outcome.

     

     

    Hope you have a first class outcome, buddy...

    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    The break in is the worst... The car well it is unfortunate. The same happened to a family member a couple of years ago in France and they took the Mini from the garage... Very scary and part of the reason why I have no desire to move back to Europe.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    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.

    Oh no! laugh Where was it parked, if I may ask?

    It is in these unfortunate situations that a vehicle tracking system is much welcomed.

    not sure...usually one would not want the car back when it is stolen....might be half destroyed. then they repair it for you and you loose 50% in value


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    If they steal my car, they can have it. Generally, unless these car are recovered within a couple of days they are not worth having back. Sadly, for Kobalt there are no replacements unless Porsche relents and gives him an extra allocation.

    UPDATE ****

    Car was sighted two hours ago (approx 18.15) on the Sundsvall Bridge going south on the E4.
     


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    They are still driving it around the same region where they stole it? Not very professional. That is great news! Hopefully it's only a matter of time until they catch them. It would be great if they catch those involved and not just recover the car, having broken into your home it would be good to know that they are gone for a few years, though knowing the european goodie-two-shoes justice systems it wont be long till they are out again mail

    Is it possible this a joy ride by druggies? If they wanted to ship it out certainly it would be in a container of some kind.
