A 1957 Porsche 597 Jagdwagen 4×4 – one of 49 civilian versions of the short-lived German Army DKW Munga – an amphibious Jeep/Land Rover alternative of which only 71 were ever made because, at the time, Porsche didn’t have the production capacity to match the army’s demands.

Running, driving and currently up for auction between €200,000 and €230,000.

The photographer who witnessed this told Jalopnik:

Saw this while in San Francisco Thursday morning…

Apparently a Porsche 911 driver with more money than brains plowed into a pit of fresh cement where they were repaving the road along the coast. Just before this the workers were frantically trying to shovel out the cement before it set any further. No obvious sighting of the owner, however.

How much you wanna bet she/he was on the phone at the time?

UPDATE: Seems he/she was a ‘he’…

Well, the snow’s back.

If you have £170 to spare (you know who you are), why not take to the slopes in style with Porsche’s new bobsled?

A bobsleigh designed with the Porsche philosophy quickly and nimbly cut through the snow thanks to directional stability, a low centre of gravity, ease of steering, good braking and low weight (only approx. 4 kg). Exclusively designed by the Porsche Design Studio. Can also be used as skeleton.
