We didn’t know that gas stations would be such a dangerous place for sports cars, but as the owner of this very dinged up Porsche 911 GT3 RS in the UK will tell you, there really is no place to feel safe with your sports car these days.

We don’t exactly know the details behind this crash, although we’re a little surprised that given the circumstances – like, say, hitting the fuel pumps - it didn’t lead to anything more dangerous. But hey, you can only count your blessings, right?

Despite the extensive damage the 911 GT3 RS sustained, we think that the car is still somewhat salvageable. It might take a lot of money to repair the entire front hood and bumper, but given that this is one sweet piece of ride, sending it to the clunkers would be a perfectly way to waste a Porsche 911 GT3 RS. Then again, not crashing it into a gas pump would’ve been a better alternative.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Inability to engage traction control? GOOD, I say.

I thought the GT3 was the hardest, most extreme of the 911 series. Why does it even have traction control in the first place? I thought none of them did.

Hmm, maybe that was just purely an accident.

Woah! On the look of it, stupidity has arise again. It almost split in half.
