Porsche thief makes dramatic exit

Kuala Lumpur - A thief crashed a R1.95m Porsche through the glass doors of a showroom in Malaysia after asking to test its engine, reports said on Tuesday.

The man got into the high-performance car and asked a saleswoman to switch on the engine before making his dramatic exit, Bernama said.

It described him as well-dressed, and said he produced a cheque book before smashing his way out of the showroom in the 963 000-ringgit Porsche 911 Targa 4.

But the thief did not get very far. Officers found the car abandoned 1.5km away, and newspapers reported it had run out of fuel.
