Video: Porsche 911 gets dropped from a crane

If you’re a fan of Porsche – and we bet there are tons of you out there that are – then we’re showing this video with a rather simple disclaimer: don’t watch it.

It’s bad enough for us to see Porsches get involved in car crashes, but to purposely hang one 164 feet up in the air on a crane and drop it; isn’t that a little too much?

This unfortunate 911 ended up in this state after a German radio station took a week-long poll on whether to save the 911 or use it like a really expensive water balloon. Needless, the video certainly answered how that poll went. We have no idea what prompted the radio station to take such action, but whoever thought that this was a pretty slick marketing trick should be damned for all eternity.

And to that young lady who said that it was pretty cool? No, it’s totally not cool.

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 full bio

With all the money that they are earning, they can even drop a Bugatti Veyron if they wanted to. I wonder though, how much money have they made from this act of trashing a perfectly wonderful car.

cool and amazing stunts but isn’t that unwise to wreck a thousand dollar car like this? they should sell it and donate the money to Chile and haiti.

that was an entertaining movie, of course many will vote to end the 911’s life because it’s really fun to see a falling car.

Or to hell. Best looking 911 I’ve seen in a while....after the drop. Notice how the rear end steps out even in vertical fall.

I don’t know about you but I really really , like this particular video, because the people voted that the Porsche should be sent "to heaven".
