Porsche 911 GT3 RS takes a nose-dive into Amsterdam canal

Oops, maybe someone had a bit of a lead foot while shuffling cars around the dealership lot.

A new picture published by AutoVisie this week shows what’s allegedly a brand new 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS face-down in an Amsterdam canal. Hope the auto insurance covers flooding. The car has an MSRP of about $175,000.

The owner of the dealership, Hans van der Valk, told AutoVisie that it was a mistake made by a mechanic. It’s unclear how that mistake happened – maybe the car was left in neutral and rolled forward, but there’s “very little damage.” It looks like a truck could easily lift the 911 right out of the river. With a nice soapy sponge, some body work and a bit of wax, my guess is this thing will be looking good as new again.

Just don’t check the Carfax.

Oh, and wondering what the 911 GT3 RS looks like when it’s not nose-down in water? Flip through the gallery above.
