Porsche 911 rolls into lake outside dealership in Holland


A Porsche 911 GT3 RS with a custom paint job accidentally fell into water at a dealership in Holland.

The limited-edition car, which is finished in Gulf Oil livery, unfortunately ended up in the water after a mechanic made a mistake and dropped the car's front off the edge.
The Porsche 911 GT3 RS features a six-cylinder engine that produces 500hp and 460Nm of torque. This means that it can go from 0-62mph in just 3.3 seconds and carry onwards to a top speed of 193mph.

As one of the fastest and most direct cars ever built by Porsche, it will come as no surprise that it was able to surpass the Carrera GT – Porsche's famous hypercar – in its Nurburgring time, lapping the 'Green Hell' 4.0 seconds quicker than the V10-powered vehicle.

The managing director of the dealership in question, Hans Van der Valk, seemed remarkably calm about the event, telling local news reporters: "The car was parked on the waterfront and a mechanic made a mistake when trying to get IN vehicle.

"That is very unfortunate, but it can happen. When there are people, mistakes are made.

"Only the tip was in the water and no one was hurt. There's not much damage."

It's most likely Van der Valk will be glad that the Porsche has only sustained minimal damage, owing to its limited numbers and £131,296 price tag.

Another report stated that the car had accidentally rolled into the lake while a mechanic applied the custom graphics. The car is currently being repaired and prepared for its customer.
