It's bad enough when natural disasters lay waste to homes and coastline, but we're not sure we can bear the sight of this sort of car-carnage. Like this image, for example, of a Porsche Cayman buried in the sand. But we guess this was bound to happen to a car that shares its name with a Caribbean archipelago (it was actually named after a small species of crocodile).

The shot was taken by Asylum blogger Elizabeth Brady on Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, where the effects of "Nor'Ida" – a particularly strong Nor'Easter conspiring with the remnants of Tropical System Ida – were apparently felt particularly hard.

Natural disaster or no natural disaster, we're sure someone will find a way of blaming this on a low-flying pelican – or perhaps Ferrari boss Luca di Montezemolo.

      Why...why I ask, when you know a major storm is coming do you park your car in harms way? I always see cars in flooded parking lots after storms, with water up to their wind shields and wonder why folks didn't just get in therir car and park somewhere on high ground. It's not like this was a flash flood. I guess they couldn't make the payments.

      That's what sand does. Why would anybody park their car in sand?

      you're excused. now beat it and take your two-bit condescending opinion with you.

      @thenobleturd: If you have anything substantive to add to the discussion, by all means, please do so. But if all you can do is resort to name-calling, then I will excuse myself and have nothing to do with your type.

      That is a damn shame.

      I hope it can be properly, and meticulously saved, and not just discarded, nor just quickly dried out and thrown back on the road to rot from now onward.

      Almost as bad as the movie Risky Business, when a 928 ended up in the drink. "Who's the U-boat captain?"
