Gutted! Looks a nice motor too, hopefully it can be salvaged.

Was it raining heavily? Looks very much like a single vehicle accident/spin.

Well known car, the owner posts on here occasionally.

He hit a rainstorm with a river running across the road at around 70, back end stepped out & spat him into the Armco head first. 3 wheels ripped off & only the driver's door is undamaged. Fortunately, he got out of hospital this evening with no damage. The car is unfortunately totalled Sad

Ouch! That's rotten luck.

Pleased to hear the driver is ok. Sorry to hear the car is totalled.

I wonder if there may have been some slurry in the wash across the road? I had a similar experience on a minor road when cycling and ended up having to ride 15 miles with a broken collar bone before going to A&E.

Either that or perhaps some diesel on the wet road?

Could have been any of us.....

Good luck to the owner.

Cheers, Keith.

If I'd had to guess, that was my thoughts from the one photograph. I tend to use my turbo all weathers and hope the 4WD and PSM would perhaps give me a better chance in those conditions, but it makes you wonder...

Glad no one hurt. My commiserations to him though; that's a nice motor and I'm sure it's was not a nice experience.

I am sure we have all experienced those moments on the autobahn/motorway. Moving at speed with those hugely wide rear wheels you are never going to dispell large amounts of water. I am quite sure that even a non 996 GT3 ie one with traction control/PSM would have come acropper.

I had to use the autobahn returning from Nurburg home and the E42 in the area of Spa Francochamps was horrendous with constant little streams across the carriageway. I experienced plenty of little shimmys from the back end. It does remind you that you are alive though Very Happy Very Happy .

It is always a great shame to see another true drivers car bight the dust. Still it can now take pride of place next to the red one http://911uk.com/viewtopic.php?t=118405 Thumb

No injuries just shows how safe these cars are.

I experienced a similar accident in 2006 in a 997C2S.
not exceeding the posted speed limit on a dual carriageway, but hit a swathe of deep standing water.
Car was on 2 month old N rated Michelins, so full tread
Span right round several times and spat me out into the armco, then a tree on the hard shoulder.
PSM didn't help... Smile
I was fine, the car was totalled

Edited to say that the car was sold at auction and rebuilt !

Interesting...

KX55 CEF turned into D19 ROY.

Which then turned into GT03 WOW.

Which is taxed and MOT'd and on a red Porsche again...

Good to hear driver was ok. Must be gutted (and probably relieved it didn't turn out worse). Hope they get sorted soon.

We've had some horrific surface water in the north during the past week. Drove up to West Argyll on Tuesday and back yesterday. At times I was struggling to get above 60 on M6 and M74. Felt a bit daft, being overtaken by all sorts, but I'd rather get where I'm going in one piece. Wished I'd had my winters on still. Summer tyres are pretty rubbish with even fairly light surface water.

Any bikers will tell you after hot dry spells the first heavy rain on the road seems to sit on top meaning zero traction

2000 Porsche 996 GT3 Mk1

PostPosted: Wed Jun 28, 2017 7:47 am    Post subject: Reply with quote

I hope the Silver MK1 in the picture is not my old one - nooo

I remember coming through Brussels and the rain just suddenly started and the back end must of moved about 5 cm, but to me it felt like 5ft. Scared the life out of me. I remember pulling over at the next services for about 30 mins.

Pleased the owner is ok, real shame about the car.
