Porsche 911 GT3 RS PDK Has Brutal Crash in South Africa, Could Be Totaled

Any Porsche Neunelfer accident is painful, but when we're talking about an uber-limited model such as the GT3 RS PDK, things get even more complicated.

It's enough to talk about the Rennsport 911 that recently crashed in South Africa, which you can see in this image, while adding the fact that the current GT3 RS is d-e-a-d dead for the 2017 model year to understand while we hope the supercar won't end up becoming a write-off.

Truth be told, it's hard to judge the machine's condition just by what we can see in this image, as we could be dealing with engine damage that would only be visible from underneath. Or, an even more likely scenario, the Zuffenhausem machine could be hit on its right side (a bent frame would should bring a total loss).

The accident only led to material damage

Fortunately, though, Kurt Maske, the Facebook user who delivered this image, did mention nobody was hurt in the images - the man turned to the "green patients" notion, which comes from trauma triage, confusing a few fellow Facebook surfers.

The man also added that the crash took place on the R45 road, in the Bridge House School area, which sits in the Cape Winelands close to Franschhoek.

Since we expect many of you to turn to their imagination in an attempt to figure out what lead to the horrible position displayed by the GT3 RS we have here, we'd like to remind you that South Africa drives on the left.

And while we're discussing Porsche 911 GT3 RS crashes, we'll remind you the most recent one took place earlier this month. Fortunately, though, the accident, which happened on the Nurburgring, only left the track machine with what should be minor damage here's a piece of footage showing the accident in case you missed it.
