Porsche 911 Catches Fire At 2016 New York Auto Show
It burned, but may live to drive another dayby Robert Moore, on
Just when you think you’ve heard all of the news from the New York Auto Show, something jumps out to surprise us. In this case, it is a video of a Porsche 911 Turbo that evidently caught on fire Thursday morning at the Sprawling complex. Rumor has it that the 911 that caught on fire was supposed to be part of a special presentation that would kick off on Friday.
There has been no official word about what actually caused the fire, but NBC 4 in New York has said that it was a small electrical fire. In the video we have here, we can see workers scrambling to extinguish the flames in an attempt to save the 911. As far as we know, nobody was injured in the fire, and some sources are indicating that there was very little damage done to the 911 as well. There are some other pictures floating around that show the 911 post-fire, and in those images, there is little damage to be seen, aside from the powder left over from the extinguishers. So, it’s possible that the owner of the car won’t suffer a total loss. With that said, go ahead and take a look at the video and see for yourself – it’s not every day a car catches on fire at an auto show.
