Rare Porsche 911 GT3 RS Falls Into Amsterdam Canal

Rare Porsche 911 GT3 RS Falls Into Amsterdam Canal

Grab your tissue box because this is something that’ll break your heart. It’s the story of an ultra-rare Porsche 911 GT3 RS falling into a canal in Europe.

The sad spectacle happened outside of Porsche of Amsterdam in the Netherlands. According to reports, the sportster had just been fitted with new livery for a customer when things went horribly wrong.  In an epic parking fail, the car rolled off the ramp and head nose into the water. It was quickly pulled out. The dealer is blaming a mechanic for the mistake.

Hans van der Valk, owner of Porsche Centrum Amsterdam, said: “It’s one of our top models now with his nose in the water. But where people are, mistakes are made and here it is purely a mechanic who has made a mistake.”

But wait a second, just when you thought all was lost, the dealer actually says it’s not over for the sportster. What!? Apparently, the engine wasn’t damaged and the dealer says the damage isn’t fatal. However, it will likely need a little front end work.

The 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS churns out 500 horses thanks to a 4.0 liter flat-six engine.

So I guess we can all put away our kleenex boxes now, whew. That was a close one.
