Police investigate how a Porsche burst into flames

Now THAT is a fire!

Yeah I know - my nephew's hockey team bus caught on fire last week. Luckily no one was hurt. ICE fires happen all the time. Those engines run really hot, and they have all that flammable oil and gas around, sometimes leaking here and there...

Will Porsche stock price drop 5% tomorrow?

"Spring Cycle" slow news day in the southern front.

@Bikezion Thanks for the info but you know I was posting sarcasm don't you? :O)

rolling gas bombs i tell ya :tinfoilhat:

Bike;
That was an Audi R8; I guess it's as "hot" as a Porsche.

Carlk yes, I just marked the price.
772 I have a natural gas car, if you want to see rolling gas bomb, look up what happens if one of those explode!
BrainH, yes that's what I was saying, it's not exclusive to Porsche. Or Ferrari.

When I was a kid I was in the back of our 1968 bug, I'm all "Mom the cars on fire!" She pulls over gets me and my brother out, gets back in and drives down the block to the GAS station to find a water hose.?.?.?.I thinking that's not good. I'm pretty sure after she hosed it out she come back over, picked us up, and we went about the day.

I had a VW Bug in high school and it caught on fire under the back seat which is where the battery was a few different times. My best friend was driving it once while I was in the back pre-occupied with my girlfriend. He said, "hey, something is wrong with your car" and I looked up and noticed the headlights were dimming and then getting brighter. As I sat up I saw flames under us. That led to some great jokes and a story that's never died.

Haha you really light her fire!
Ours was in the engine coming up over the rear window.

A coworker was driving his 911 in city traffic. He kept smelling gas so he pulled over to check it out. A cracked fuel line was dumping fuel all over the engine. Luckily, it didn't hit anything hot enough to ignite, but it could have been very exciting.
