First how can a Porsche be worth that much and second where is his brains ?

Porsche supercars can often exceed 7 figures, so $750,000 is certainly within the scope.  Can’t answer the part about the brains.

Some folks have more dollars than sense !

Tried to drive it away ? Good luck with that one.

Life is hard, if your stupid, it's really hard.

Wife and I can relate to this. Yesterday was my 6 week check up to see if last bladder cancer treatment was successful and we wouldn't have been out at all if not for this important test. Just 2 miles into trip at 10 AM we stopped at a traffic light and were rear ended by some "high" idiot who was taken away in cuffs for DUI all the while screaming obscenities at wife and I as well as the police officers! Very proud of how well our 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV endured the full speed crash as witness's claimed he never even touched the brakes. Rough start to our day but cancer free declaration later at Doctor's helped us endure it.

Porsche looks like a money maker for the guys that get to rebuild it. Bob 

Maybe A__monkey can do it.

Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. And nice job adding the felonious "and run" part to the list of crimes you committed, dumbass.

 

That particular Porsche (the Carrera GT) is treacherous as hell. It's the same one that killed Paul Walker and has a nasty reputation for being extremely difficult to control, even for highly skilled drivers (which a 33-year-old Instagram hero isn't). Everyone who owns one knows that if they get anywhere close to the limit, they will crash.

 

Looks like this guy is nothing more than another data point in that theorem.

I've been following the related videos, this is the 5th or 6th HIGH END car the guy has wrecked. He rolled a McLaren! Bob

Yup, your right.

Ignorance can be fixed with schooling or experience.

Stupid is forever.

"Ignorance is a fact! Stupid is a choice!"

 

Everyone is ignorant about thousands of things that they have never needed to learn. Ignorance can be overcome on many of those thousands of things anytime one needs and is willing to learn.

Stupid is having had opportunities to learn things that any fool should have learned. But having chosen to NOT learn.

I do not throw the word "stupid" around carelessly. If I say someone is "stupid", it is because I mean it.

 

Howard, I also am quite pleased to hear you are doing well! Keep getting better. Maxwell needs you.

In New York City it is literally impossible for a citizen to own a handgun, but they give jerks like this a license to kill himself or an innocent bystander. Too much money and too little brains.

I have often wondered if there could be some law that correlated the horsepower to the age/iq or something else.  For example an 18 year old could only drive/rent/own a 60 horsepower car.  a fifty year old could only drive a 150 horsepower car.  Owners of CCCA "Classic" or pre WWII cars would be exempt.

I guess there is no real way to fix stupid.

That is a good idea, tying horse power to age, but maybe it should be on a "bell curve" with the peak being somewhere around 50.

Well... OK, now that I know my limitations, I guess I will go out and fire up the walk-behind lawnmower!

I'm still trying to figure out why any car needs more than 250 horsepower! The driver(s) is stupid for sure, but he did not make this car. What is its intense speed capability meant for? Certainly not for racing on city streets at $700K a pop. Part of this Spoiled Society's Sickness.

I wonder if this guy is tied to a Diplomatic Immunity some how and does not care if he is caught.

I have heard in London the boy racers are from all over the World with Diplomatic plates and the Police cannot stop them from speeding.
