https://www.nj.com/ocean/2019/11/porsche-lodged-into-the-second-story-of-building-after-crash-police-say.html

Two people were killed Sunday morning after a red Porsche went airborne and crashed into the second floor of a commercial building in Toms River, police said.

Driving a red 2010 Porsche Boxter convertible at a high rate of speed northbound on Hooper Avenue when it lost control, crossed over the roadway and hit an embankment, said Jillian Messina, a spokeswoman for the Toms River Police Department. The car then plunged into the second story of building on the southbound side of Hooper Avenue.

Hit an embankment Surprised

It's clipped the Kerb !! i'm obviously presuming those Black marks are off the tryes of the car thats thats parked on some ones bed ?

Embankment is a bit of an over statement there, he must have been travelling at a fair rate to get up there after hitting a kerb, my vision of an embankment is something which you can stand behind and not see over the top, i looked at the first few pics thinking he must have flown the air to wind up there,

Surprised

I think it goes to show just how effective the aerodynamics of these cars are at keeping them on the ground. It looks like as soon as the 'ground effect' was broken by it launching on the kerb it just took off.

At my local airfield I'm always amazed to see small planes take off on grass at very low speeds but that Boxster must have been going pretty fast.

What a way to go. If you're going to meet your maker I can think of worse ways than in a guards red boxster.

When they pitched up at the pearly gates, I wonder if St Peter suggested he should have opted for ceramics instead of steels?

Horrendous stuff. Two young lives cut short through stupidly and inexperience it seems. I'm certain that the moments leading up to the accident won't be too disimmilar to situations we've found ourselves in at a similar age.
Maybe feeling a little more compassionate thinking about all those other young lives cut short playing out old men's games

Looks to me like it was sliding sideways before hitting the kerb, and barrel rolling airborne and into the house.

Just horrific, poor lads and their families nooo

To touch upon Terry’s point... I thought most road cars produce lift? The active fin on the back of my beloved Cayman only served to reduce lift by 20kg I believe. That’s the impression I was under anyway.

Terrible these two young men should lose their lives. Definitely going some to get up there, that’s for sure.

I wonder, did they hit the kerb sideways and flip the car into the buiding?

It doesn't really matter how I suppose, as it has ended in an awful tragedy for two families.

They must have been going flat out 150 plus to skittle that car so high, looks like they unfortunately got it perfectly wrong, sad for all.

They say the frontal lobe in a males brain doesn't fully develop the judgement of risk until after 25 years of age, hence more young men die than females by doing stupid things, we have all done them just sometimes you don't get away with it.

Remember we’re the ones that did get away with it; the others are not here to comment.

This puts the crash into perspective. That building is a further back than I first thought.

A 2010 Box has no 'ground effect' at all. In fact, it generates lift.

If you watch the video, the thing hit a ditch at high speed and was launched upwards. Nothing to do with breaking any aero effect!
