    The vandal getting out of the driver's door looks like he might be wearing a mechanic's overall.  Smiley

    Guess there will be a guard rail there in the near future.

    Feeling sorry for all involved parts.


    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    surely PDK-S has a "park function" which would have stopped the car from rolling forward?

    I heard from a trustworthy source that he was told to wash the car.

    Maybe he put it it in Neutral - or pulled both paddles and released them...

    Wouldn't help if the guy tasked with moving the car was to put it into forward instead of reverse gear.

    Maybe he should also have been told that they usually use a car wash, not the lake. Smiley

    PS: Make that "pond". "Lake " was much too grand a name for that puddle.

    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    I'd let it drown peacefully instead of pulling it back to the ground damaging the engine/transmission/suspension angry


    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    Let us hope that they still produce the RS.


    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    I just imagined I would have been waiting for my PTS miami blue GT3 RS and received a message yesterday to pick up my car tomorrow...Smiley

    I would assume that Porsche gets the car repaired though it seems that the front hit this metal bar, which actually seem to have stopped the car before drowning.


    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    that's Gulf Blue, I think


    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    I think that's not the best place to park cars heart


    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    According to Trakcar the car was getting the brake calipers painted.

    So they parked a car with no brakes next to an Amsterdam channel with no fence and let a guy move the car without letting him know that there where no brakes... Great idea... 

    Poor guy - Not his fault but he must been devastated - I would have been.
    Lets hope he didn't get hurt physical in the accident.

    To put the wheels back on that car without the brake calipers fitted, park it out front as if it were just a demo car on display, and not take any special precautions against it rolling away or some uninformed but otherwise authorised person trying to drive it is wrong on so many levels.  Smiley

    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    C'mon it is PDK - parking is engaged automatically, when you park the car....Smiley ... The owner may think that this will become the most expensive caliper paint job ever...


    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    Would not have happened with a manual gearbox left in gear indecision

    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    Slowly rolling forward, flooring brake pedal - not a good feeling :-)

    But thinking of it: it is not possible to move the gear selector if not braking. I wonder what really heppened.

     


    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    Well, I would not want to think that they put it on "neutral" because of this...Smiley

    You may have been just kidding when you wrote that Smiley , but in fact it's true that the parking brake acts on drums in the rear wheel brake disks, so the parking brake is engaged even if the calipers are removed. It just becomes a problem if you add a human to the mix.  Smiley
