Maybe that is why it weighs 4300 lbs.

Can't be so sure they were fooling around.
Autobahn is a fast moving motorway.
Fortunately the dog is well.

I lived in Germany for 4 years, owned and drove 2 Porsches, belonged to a German/American Sports Car Club and I know how every one of these fellows drives when he feels "sporty" - reincarnations of Wolfgang Von Trips all

just reading what's presented...Dad and 2 Sons, driving M5, M6 & M3....doing over 180 mph

it quacks, it waddles, it poops....gee, it must be a....well, you know

Clearly the car wasn't doing 186mph when it crashed. As the article states = during the drive they got "up to" 186mph.

Its all fun and games until someone gets hurt. The idiot should've just hit the brakes instead of swerving. I remember when I was a little girl in driving class we were taught to brake and NOT try to avoid an animal that crosses the road, thats how accidents happen.

uh, he didn't swerve to avoid an animal, he swerved to avoid another car - the "dog" was in his car

no matter - he was driving above his ability and lucky he didn't kill an innocent (including the dog !)

OH , this is why I should read entire posts.


Yeah they're lucky to be alive. Who ever cut the guy off and fled the scene is dick he most likely saw the crash. I'd be so pissed. I hope that guy gets struck by lightning.
