Porsche 911 GT2 RS Crashes On The ‘Ring 3 Days After Delivery

Three days. That’s how long the owner of this new Porsche 911 GT2 RS got to enjoy his ride, before crashing it at the Nurburgring race track last weekend.

Luckily, the German supercar didn’t make any widows on that day, but it’s going to need some attention on that front bumper (and left front fender?), which wears the battle scars with the guardrail, in addition to a thorough – and very likely, costly, mechanical inspection.

It’s unclear how the accident happened, but the speed factor, combined with not enough usage of the brake pedal, could be blamed, as could an oil spill or the driving skills of the person behind the wheel, who was filmed having a blast with the brand new Porsche 911 GT2 RS a day before accident.

According to the description of one of the videos posted on Instagram by NurburgringLivePics, the owner of the German sports car, equipped with the optional Weissach package, traveled from Denmark straight to the Nurburgring right after taking delivery of the car from the local dealership.

And it wasn’t the only hot Porsche to have been put through its paces, as the images reveal a 911 GT3 RS, too. Though fortunately, this one didn’t need to pay a visit to the hospital after a few hot laps.

 

This GT2RS survived only 3 days 🙈 #Porsche #GT2RS #PorscheGT2RS

    It don’t look that bad nothing a bit of elbow grease won’t fix it

  • Hopefully the Porsche will be back on the road and the owner is not shy on taking it on track again.

    Wait, an’t those plate from the Netherlands ?

  • Wandering_Spirit

    To be honest, he looks quite competent while driving. I tend to think maybe he overdid it a bit with a brand new car. I am genuinely sorry for him.
