Throttle-Happy Porsche Cayman Driver In Brazil Crashes Into Sign

An aggressive driver of a yellow Porsche Cayman S was filmed power-sliding the German sports car in Brazil just moments before crashing.

The video shows the driver of the Cayman aggressively pulling onto a road and pinning the throttle of the car, kicking out its tail and performing a wild powerslide down the road. The driver then swiftly pulls down a nearby road where the person filming soon catches up to them. It was not a pretty sight.

Just after the driver kicked out the tail of the Cayman, they somehow hit a white hatchback and plowed head-on into a large sign causing significant front-end damage to the car.

We’re not insurance assessors, but if we were to make a guess, the Porsche was probably deemed a write-off. That’s if it was fully insured, of course.

While the video says the Cayman in question is a 718-generation model, it clearly isn’t and is instead a third-generation 981 example. If it is indeed a Cayman S model then it is powered by a naturally-aspirated 3.4-liter engine delivering an impressive 321 hp and 273 lb-ft (370 Nm) of torque, allowing for a 0-60 mph (96 km/h) sprint of approximately 4.5 seconds depending on whether it’s a six-speed manual example or one with a seven-speed PDK.

Power is sent exclusively through the rear wheels and the car is loved for its exceptional handling. Evidently, no finely-tuned chassis can make up for dim-witted driving.

    He started it well. Pity for the final. Normally Brazilians can drive well. This must be one of those sad exceptions.
