IT IS often said that Porsche drivers think they’re better behind the wheel than other motorists on the road. Unfortunately for one owner, a spectacular parking fail showed that even when you’ve got the keys to one of the most desirable cars on the road, there’s no guarantee it will make you a good driver.
The video below shows the aftermath of a Porsche parking prang.
A 911 Targa 4, which costs nearly £92,000 new, can be seen balancing precariously in the air, after demolishing a wall and landing on a busy pedestrian underpass.
The accident happened yesterday in Colchester, Essex. Police say that a 73-year-old man has been reported for careless driving after the crash.

Sergeant Colin Shead said that neither the driver nor any pedestrians were injured, and the man had been offered a ‘fitness to drive’ course.
New Porsche owners are able to enrol in advanced driving courses at a dedicated training centre at the Silverstone race track. However, it is not a mandatory requirement to attend one of the safety sessions.
