Video: Radio Station Drops Porsche Boxster from Crane

A Finnish radio station that goes by the name “NRJ” held a contest called “Cash or Crash” where listeners could vote to either win or destroy an all-new Porsche Boxster roadster. According to our reader Toni N. who sent us this tip, 56% of the people who took part in the vote apparently didn’t believe in luck so they chose to crash the German sportscar.

NRJ did what it promised by tying up the Boxster on a crane and dropping it from a height of 30 meters or about 100 feet. The unfortunate incident –for car lovers like ourselves that is- took place in a parking lot in Finland on Wednesday, June 18, 2008. -Video after the jump

Thanks for the tip Toni N.!

That's not an all new Boxster, that's the first-gen, probably a high-mileage used one.

I dont know what's the fun in destroying a car for this sort of publicity. but i'm sure the car used has prpably been in an accident, repaired then dropped.

i i were the guy on the release latch, i wouldn't of pulled on it. i rather blow up a car, it's more spectacular, but never a porsche.

Definitely an old Boxster, pre-2000 at best. They haven't used 4-spoke steering wheels in a long time. I didn't see the engine either (where'd it go?). Wouldn't be surprised if this was from a wrecking yard to begin with.

Overall a waste of time, but IMO, the Boxster occupancy section survived the impact pretty well considering.

That's the only rightful application for this car.

Well... Jeremy did it in the worst way possible. Everybody thought it was fun.

If so, with a Porsche it should be even more fun!
