Ironically enough, this is the second time today that I've seen links to this incident...

Note to self: start reading instructions...

reminds me abit of that 1980's movie about the kid that wants a Lambo so bad, he actually gets one but it gets towed away by a crane like tow truck... litterally lifted straight up in the air by the front-end with the rear end swinging near the ground.

I can't even look at that... it hurts. The other thing that's kind of remarkable are the wisea** comments and laughing smiles on that forum. Seems to be alot more comradarie on this and other Porsche forums.

That's some tough luck.
