Silly Porsche, rivers are for boats. As the story goes, this particular Swiss Porsche owner had to learn that the hard way when his 911 Turbo was driven by a friend off a boat dock leading to the Rhine River. We assume this "friend" will forever be mentioned at cocktail parties in stories that start with "You won't believe..." and end with "... so I jump-kicked him in the throat, and that's why we're not friends anymore."

Click past the jump to see the sad, waterlogged Porsche flop like a fish on its crane-assisted trip back to dry land.

      When I read this, I almost immediately thought of Lakitu fishing me out of the rough in Mario Kart. I doubt I'm alone in that. http://boomansion.net/media/artwork/smk/lakitu2.jpg

      A nice looking red second generation Audi TT was fished out of the marina in my town yesterday. A 90 year old guy drove it down there to eat his lunch next to Long Island Sound and stepped on the gas instead of the brake. He was fine but I guess the car is totalled. It was in the water over the roof. I was surprised a 90 year old would have such a low sportscar to begin with.
