Owner Has His Porsche 911 Executed by Firing Squad

Fed-up with his dream car’s reoccurring engine problems,  a Porsche 911 owner decided to donate it to a local gun club, to be shot with 10,000 bullets.

What do you do when having to repeatedly fix an expensive car gets too frustrating? Well,we’ve seen a Lamborghini owner who had it destroyed with jackhammers,  a man who had his Range Rover pulled to the dealership by donkeys, and now a man who preferred to donate his beautiful Porsche 911 for target practice, rather than pay over $20,000 in repairs.

When the members of Comm2A, an organisation dedicated to protecting US gun rights, from Massachusetts, first heard they would get the chance of emptying their magazines in the expensive German sports car, they probably thought it was a joke, but after he took the first shot himself, they knew he was serious. 140 gun-wielding men, women and children shot more than 10,000 bullets at the poor Porsche putting its sturdy body to the ultimate test. Although it was ultimately reduced to a pierced pile of junk, members of Comm2A were surprised about how well it held up against the rain of led. There was little damage done to the passenger side of the Porsche, where bullets seemed unable to penetrate the gas tank. Only the larger, high-velocity rounds managed to pierce both sides of the car.

Comm2A has shot up cars before, but usually old, broken ones, so they were pretty grateful to the wealthy motorist who gave them the chance to destroy something so new and beautiful. Porsche 911 fans will want to skip the videos below, it’s not pretty.

    Pretty lousy shots if you ask me. There were many more shots heard than holes punctured, and you can see how many rounds hit the dirt in front ogf the car. These guys would be downright dangerous in a real situation. This is a sad relsut to a fine car, even if it was problematic, but it is more embarrassing to the gun club, who are obviously incompetent at the trigger.
