Ferrari 488 and Porsche 911 GT3 RS Ruined by Hurricane Harvey Share The Pain

People might be talking about the toll taken by Hurricane Irma these days, but the consequences of Hurrican Harvey have yet to be fully introduced to us. And we're here to zoom in on an example that can easily ruin an automotive aficionado's day.

This comes from Instagram, where a supercar owner decided to share his ruined two-car garage with us. As you can see in the image we have here, the man's automotive life included a Ferrari 488 GTB and a 991-generation Porsche 911 GT3 RS - we have to mention that the mix of Prancing Horse twin-turbo powaaah and Zuffenhausen track might sounds absolutely delicious.

Alas, both cars have been affected by the flood and we don't even want to think about the water-induced damage they sustained.

Sure, certain gear heads managed to protect their four-wheeled friends from the flood by either taking them to safe places or building hardware that would raise the machines inside the garages that house them. Sadly, the case we have here doesn't fit any of those labels.Let's talk about the devastating effects of nature's caprices
The most recent death toll estimate lets us know that Harvey killed at least 82 people, but the devastating effects of the natural disaster spread much further.

For one thing, while thousands of animals were taken to various shelters in Texas, the number of those who weren't saved from the hurricane hasn't been estimated.

And since we also talked about Irma in the intro, we'll mention that the two hurricanes damaged about one million cars, causing a serious change in the US used car market.

To be more precise, while the recent trend that saw used vehicle prices declining (this was based on oversupply, as new car sales have risen), the effects of the hurricanes will probably see the prices going up.
