Well the driver was going the wrong way on several streets, so I was just wondering.

Fake video, looks like a toy car to me.

Besides who would use a yellow getaway car? It's the "police please come get me" color!

The AOS always dies at the most inopportune time.

Poor 'lil car took quite a beating before she quit .
Not to mention it handled pretty good on three wheels.

Agree. Porsche calls my 911 'Guards Red', I call it 'Arrest Me Red'!

I'm from the land down under where the right hand drive Coxsters thunder...

Trust me that was a true chase, and that clip is popular on our forum over here (Porsche forum australia)

Makes the air cooled traditionalist sit up and take notice, on how tough the Coxsters are.

Also proves once and for all ....yellow ones are faster and tougher than red ones.

That vid showed how tough our 'Energizer Bunny' cars are. And looked doing it…even on three wheels.

What I was impressed with is that when it lost the tire, the rads let go too. So it ran without coolant for that long before it died! Impressive! Wonder IF it was the IMS that eventually ended it.

That car was baked…wonder if the mud flaps are any good? Is that wrong?
