Thumbs down Street Racer Died: 997 vs. Modded Golf




A little reminder of the dangers of street racing. Great the Golf had the roll bars to bash the skull against. BTW, my very rough understanding of German, I hear the A2 Golf was modded to 300 HP - can someone translate the entire story?

So they got the camera out of the inferno but not the driver? Without a link to a real news story I call BS that he died.

What did the woman in the video say??? It you look at the very beginning, there is a frame or 2 of what looks like a woman reporter.

I don't speak German...but regardless, how'd they get the video camera out of the car...unless it was sending video to a remote location?

Very scary, that Golf seemed fine when he veered left into the grass when that 997 cut him off and then it all goes south

Not a good move by the 997 at all. RIP

yea, i was thinking the same thing. the car burst into flames at the end (somebody took a regular pic) and the video camera from the car was saved some how.

I believe the golf went into the grass onto the left to keep speed instead of breaking when the Porsche moved over, so no, but it was still a very shady move by the Porsche IMHO.

What's with the conspiracy theories??

The video could have survived the fire, the camera could have been ejected?

Anyone speak German?
