Why, oh why??!?
Brace yourselves; this isn’t for the faint of heart. Hide yo’ kids, hide yo’ wife. What you are about to see and hear may be disturbing.
At the end of August, the unthinkable happened. A Porsche 959 was in an accident just outside of Montreal, Quebec. Not much is known about the 959 crash and these are the only two pictures of the horrific incident, courtesy of “Chuck-S4” on MontrealRacing.
Only 337 of these super car models were ever built (according to excellence magazine), making this a very hard sight to see. A 2.85-liter flat-six engine with sequential turbochargers created 450 bhp at 6,500 RPM and 369 lb-ft. of torque at 5,500 RPM, and drove all four wheels thanks to an incredibly advanced Porsche-Steuer Kupplung (PSK) four-wheel drive system. The car was capable of a 0-62 mph time of just 3.7 seconds and could reach a top speed of 197 mph, setting it among the top super cars of today.
According to witnesses, the Porsche 959 crash occurred when the driver lost control at a curve in the road. They were also driving the car while wearing flip-flop sandals.
The repairs are going to cost quite a bit and the driver is lucky that more damage wasn’t done.
Stay tuned! We will be posting more pictures and updates of the 959 crash when they become available.
