Watch A Speeding Proton Crash Into A Porsche 911 GT3 RS In Malaysia

Dashcam footage has captured the moment a speeding Proton smashed into a Porsche 911 GT3 RS near the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur on May 27.

The footage, captured from a following vehicle, shows a white GT3 RS cruising down the left lane of the highway. Out of nowhere, a Proton speeds into the scene and attempts to overtake the Porsche. However, the driver appears to overreact to the movements of another car, hits the brakes and swerves left into the 911, forcing it into a crash barrier.

As these images that were shared with us reveal, the damage caused to the Porsche is quite significant. For starters, the front bumper has been torn to shreds following its high-speed impact with the barrier. Elsewhere, large gashes are visible down the passenger side.

No one likes crashing, especially not into a Porsche

As if things couldn’t get any worse for the Proton owner, we’re told that the driver doesn’t have insurance or a license.

The damage sustained to the 911 is definitely repairable but it won’t be cheap. Will a Proton driver be able to afford the repairs? Who knows, but we’re doubtful.

With that in mind, it seems probable that a bank in Malaysia will be handing out a loan to a certain Proton owner in the near future.

    that sucks so badly. THAT WAS INTENTIONAL

      No it wasn’t, he was trying to overtake in a (relatively) high speed where he saw the Kia switching lanes without indicating, there he tried to avoid it but lost control and ran into the Porsche

        I’d rather crash to the KIA than to a GT3 RS. You know supercars are really expensive in third world countries… Mostly twice of the price than in the US / EU but the people there are having a really low income. Around 1/10 from the US / EU maybe..

    “The Proton driver will be hung at dawn- more news at 8.”

  • “we’re told that the driver doesn’t have insurance or a license.” No license? So he shouldn’t be in the road at the first place. Also all car in Malaysia must have insurance in my knowledge, much like UK. Lastly, the Proton that the driver used is Perdana, large executive saloon (Albeit old) which is not really the average car there.

    The guy on the Proton shouldn’t be driving. A) He overreacted and B) Can’t control a car.
