Porsche 911 GT3 RS Destroyed In Severe Isle Of Man Crash

A Porsche 911 GT3 RS has been wrecked following a serious accident on the Isle of Man.

Details are limited, but we’re told that the driver of the RS inadvertently drove it up a large embankment on the side of a two-lane road. The 911 was carrying enough speed to tumbled hundreds of feet across the paddock of a local farm before coming to a rest on its roof.

All it takes is one quick look at the damage to know that this 911 is a total write-off that will never be driven again.

Parts of the car were scattered across the paddock and the entire flat-six engine and exhaust system have been ripped from the rear. Additionally, much of the front fascia appears to have been torn off and the only exterior parts which seem to have escaped any obvious damage are the doors.

The driver was, reportedly, alone in the car at the time of the crash and escaped without serious injuries. Considering how badly the car was beaten up, he must consider himself extremely lucky to simply have walked away from this one.

Amazingly, the family and friends of the 911 driver helped to clear the paddock from debris so the farm animals wouldn’t get injured.

    It wasn’t luck, it’s a Porsche Safety, they put the driver first in all ways.

    Cabins have become survival capsules, and they work pretty well.

        Well, the Carrera GT was build between 2003 and 2006. I am sure that safety standards have changed in the last 10-15 years.

          You can’t save the driver from fire, though.

            but you can prevent the fire hazard better than in 2003…..

    Move this: “escaped without serious injuries.” to the TOP of this artical to gain respect.

    shame about the car, but glad the driver is OK, amazing safety in that car obviously.

      I’m more concerned about the driver than the car… but this is CAR scoops. So I expect some insensitivity.
