This is why you have to be careful when you let your friends borrow your prized possessions. Especially when it’s a car like a Porsche 911 Turbo, which isn’t easy to replace in the event that your buddy messes it up.

Unfortunately for the owner of this beautiful sports car, the ramifications of letting his buddy take his 911 Turbo for a spin proved to be far more expensive than he initially thought.

What exactly did his buddy do? No, he didn’t crash it into a traffic pole. He didn’t get caught for speeding. He didn’t even use it to entertain some lady friends.

By comparison, all of those things would have been understandable compared to driving the sports car into the Rhine river in Switzerland, which, unfortunately, is exactly what the friend did.

Judging from the video featuring the Porsche getting lifted off of the river, you take one look at it and you already know that the car has been reduced to a scrap piece of metal.

The question now is what’s going to happen to the idiot friend when the owner finds out what happened to his 911 Turbo.

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

Since I do not have an expensive car like that, I don’t have to worry about this certain incident. If I was the owner of the Porsche, I rather threw him into deepest parts of Rhine where he belongs.

I think this incident will end up their friendship. lol Same here, I was puzzled on how this vehicle end up in the river. When the investigating team checked the car it seems that its already useless. And it seems that it needs a overhaul.

It seems that I have to say condolence to its owner. Now, this vehicle is like a useless crap. I wonder on what happened on this incident and how come it was found diving down in the river?

I have to say that I’m really impressed with the styling of this vehicle. However, its kind of sad that the owner doesn’t take car of his ride! It seems that he so excited with the blasting speed of the car.

Hell! Now that car is now useless unless he overhaul the car. IMO,the borrower of the Porsche Turbo have hit the accelerator pad too much then lose control and end it up in the river.
