Porsche 991 GT3 Wrecked In UK With Only 80 Miles On The Clock

This brand new grey Porsche 991 GT3 with only 80 miles on the clock has crashed in the UK, and the carcass is for sale.

The car actually belonged to a Pistonheads member, who took to the site after pictures of the wreckage surfaced. Thankfully, he has reported that everybody involved was uninjured. According to him, he was doing 50mph in a 60mph zone when the car suddenly lost traction and spun into an oncoming vehicle. The impact caused the engine to be ripped out, and the car “was going to roll”, but was halted by a telephone pole.

The ordeal happened a mere 24 hours after the owner picked it up, so it’s a shame that he didn’t get to experience the full potential of the car – especially considering how many awards it won last year; EVO Magazine’s Car of the Year Award and Top Gear’s Richard Hammond’s Car of the Year Award, to name a couple. The owner says he won’t be picking another one up any time soon, despite being offered another build slot by Porsche.

This isn’t the first 991 GT3 to bite the dust lately. Many are bursting into flames without explanation, causing Porsche to cease deliveries until they determine the cause and solve it. The wreckage of this 991 GT3 is for sale here, with the current bid standing at £1,000 (as of when this was written). Check out the original Pistonheads thread here.
