Sometimes driving a Porsche make you become one of the bigest car fanatic. The main idea is not to get caught. But when the police caught you driving at 172 mph, with 102 mph over the limit, well then you can say you are in trouble.

A man from UK, was caught speeding at 172mph in a borrowed Porsche 911 Turbo breaking the previous ’record’ of 156 mph. And if was not enough that he was caught, the car was borrowed from his boss. Ouch!

The 33-year-old works for car lease company Helphire in Abingdon. A spokesman for the company said: "He did not have permission to drive the Porsche. He came in this morning and resigned." He has been released on bail until February 17.

The speeding ’record’ was previously held by car dealer Jason McAllister caught doing 156mph in Scotland in 2003. He was jailed for five months.
