7 Porsche Cayman GT4s Damaged in Germany Are Headed to Junkyard

Article by Christian A., on June 13, 2016

Just recently, an accident happened at the Autobahn involving two private vehicles and two trucks – with one carrying seven Porsche Cayman GT4 units. The incident, which happened near Dortmund, Germany, has resulted to injuries both on the passengers and the vehicles.

According to reports, the transporter was hit from behind by another truck while traversing the Kamen area of Dortmund. The transporter was forced to break because of the traffic but the dutch lorry that was following it closely from behind failed to hit the breaks. The latter then crashed into the rear end of the transporter. To make things worse, another car in an adjacent lane that swerved to avoid the two trucks unfortunately got entangled with another car. All four vehicles were blocking the entire autobahn causing heavy traffic affecting all the motorists. The road had to be closed.

There were no casualties in the said accident but the drivers had injuries and had to be admitted to the hospital for treatment. The injuries did not stop there, though. It’s most unfortunate what happened to the seven Porsche Cayman GT4s that were quietly sitting in the transporter.

From the looks of the heart-breaking photos of the accident, the four black GT4s on the bottom of the transporter received the most damage while the yellow Cayman on the top middle portion got the least, if not zero damage. It looks like the transporter was cut in half and the sports coupes on the rear end got the full blow of the accident. One white Cayman on the bottom half of the transporter is likely to have a crushed roof while the red one on the top has a damaged rear.

The Porsche Cayman GT4 is one of Porsche’s top tier vehicles and is one of their most successful products. It has a manual gearbox that makes the Cayman an even more aggressive track competitor. It sports a 3.8-liter flat six that can produce 380 horsepower and 310 lb.-ft. of torque. All this goodness for a base price of 85,799 Euros.

Police estimated that the total damage costs more than one million Euros. Factor in the damage on the dutch lorry as well as the other two private vehicles and hospital bills plus seven Cayman GT4’s. Whew, the damage was huge.

Gearheads would most probably grimace at the sight of this accident especially knowing that there are seven automobile casualties. As much as we’re hoping that the injured could make a full recovery from the event, we’re also hoping that the Cayman GT4 customers could get the replacement for their damaged vehicles.
