VIDEO:That’s one way to kill the engine! The $100,000 Porsche used for target practice… after its owner got fed-up with motor problems

Massacre

Video game animator and gun fan John Beauchemin filmed the motoring massacre. He said: “The car was 100 yards from the line, and we had lots of new and inexperienced shooters and people using pistols. “We were accurate enough to shoot the spokes out of the wheels pretty quickly when someone suggested it. “I managed to put a few rifled slugs into her myself — I just wanted to destroy something beautiful. “Fun times were had by all — except the Porsche.” The gun club said the unnamed owner had spent thousands trying to fix problems with the car’s engine and cooling system before deciding to scrap it.

Ever dreamed of taking revenge when you’re cut up at the lights by a flashy sports car? Well these pictures will be a dream come true… a Porsche 911 riddled with 10,000 bullets. The silver sports car was donated to an American gun club by a wealthy motorist who was fed-up with the vehicle’s constant engine problems.

This silver Porsche 911 had suffered a number of problems to the engine and cooling system and was going to cost the owner more than $16,130 to put right.

So instead of fixing the sports car he gave it to Massachusetts’ Commonwealth Second Amendment, which campaigns to ‘reserve and expand the rights of gun owners’ in north-east USA.

They teamed up with Northeast Shooters in New England and placed the Porsche in a makeshift ‘no parking’ spot on a shooting range before opening fire on the machine.

Aiming at the $96,800 motor, 140 members were permitted to shoot at will
