A 1979 Porsche 924 has been discovered in a forest in Oregon, nearly 27 years after it was first reported stolen.
The vehicle was found by a man walking his dog in Lake National Park, Oregon, on Tuesday. He reported finding an overturned vehicle that had rolled down a steep embankment.
However, it has turned out that the Porsche was actually stolen from a cinema car park almost 27 years ago in Medford, Oregon – roughly 40 miles away from where the wreck was discovered. It was stolen on January 20, 1991.
The position of the vehicle at the base of a cliff made it near impossible to see from the road above, explaining why it has taken all these years to be discovered.
The police said: "Detectives checked the wreckage and found no human remains in or around the vehicle.
"Heavy forest debris indicated that the vehicle had been there for a significant period of time. The registration tags expired in 1991.
It also added that because of the vehicle's location that it would present "logistical and environmental concerns for removal".
