The guy who pulled off this 2-part heist is probably now teaching cucumbers a thing or two about being cool, and instructing killer bees in the value of persistence. The unnamed -- and uncaught -- thief walked into a Porsche dealership in Malaysia nattily dressed and holding a checkbook. He asked if he could test drive a black 911. Once given the keys, he got in, started it up, and drove straight out through the dealer's plate glass window. There was only one thing he didn't realize: the car only had enough gas to go 2 km, so it took the police just 30 minutes to find it abandoned.

But this was no ordinary thief. When he abandoned the car, he took the keys. Then, when the police impounded the car, they put gas in it. Add it up... and you have the same Porsche stolen again, this time from police headquarters. You can read the first part of the heist here, the second, here. Neither the thief -- whom we'll call Cool Hand Ahmad -- nor the car has been found.

Thanks for the tip, Demio121!

      This is a cool story thanks autoblog.

      To John Above:
      If you want to have your car stolen, next time find a guy that is a little crooked. He probabaly has a friend that is more crooked than him. And the friend of the friend is proably even more crooked. Tell your friend to tell his friend to tell his friend to show up and take your car off your hands. Rather than going down the highway in a car chase with police endangering the lives of everyone the thief can safely drive the car to the chop shop. Also innocent people wont be affected that totally dont want their car or belongings in the car stolen.

        Yeh, but thats then directly committing insurance fraud. Atleast his way cant be proven to be him purposefully giving off his car and callin it stolen.

        But for the Porsche thief, hats off to him, haha.

      It was reported in another paper that the car was tow to the police compound. The thief return with gas.

      The car was recovered and return to the showroom now.

      John, that's hilarious (and sad, too). A guy protecting your car during a 30 min stint at Walmart is classic, too.

      And to other posters: police wouldn't go on some wild chase looking for the stolen car. They'd write about it in a report, then find it abandoned in a week or two with all of its parts stripped out.

      Ive always wanted to make a website called www.stealmycar.com or something similar where people and thieves can come together to make a transaction. I got this idea when I bought a PT cruiser 6 years ago over MSRP because I just had to have it. 2 years later the car was worth 13,000 yet I owed 22,000 to Chrysler Finance. I wished someone would steal it so I could get a writeoff from my insurance company. It never happened. I left the keys in the car with the car running at 7-11 and nothing happened. Next time I left the window down car running went into walmart and came out 30 minutes later just to find an old man standing next to my car protecting it for me. In the end I took a 10 grand loss on the car out of my pocket. It hurt!

        One thing you never want to do when entering a car dealership: an undying lust to own a certain car no matter what.

        Sorry about the loss, but man! That is too funny!

        Thought about the same thing long time ago about a way to have thieves steal cars that people wouldn't cry over. But never thought about a website called stealmycar.com though. Your pretty creative but i bet the Cops, Insurance companies, CIA, and everybody else would monitor your site day and night and not writeoff cars posted there. But there should be a way as i know a lot of people that wouln't give a damn if their car was stolen as it would be a chance to get something new. As for those thinking insurance premiums would go up for everyone think again. A cop chase that destroys 10 cars and injures 20 people and paralyzes another 2 to 3 more costs way more than writing off a dudes 1999 F-150 worth 10 grand.
