      In the hands of a qualified driver, the Porsche 918 Spyder is an incredible machine that can hit 218 MPH (350 KM/H) in the Australian Outback. Nevertheless, Porsche's hybrid hypercar acts like any normal car when sitting on an incline unsecured against rolling away. Which means it will... roll away.
You would imagine that once one has his hands on a 918 Spyder, the owner would use maximum caution as to avoid any damage to the car. Sure, that might be the case, but it seems the driver of the 918 in the video below wanted to prove how different humans are from machines by making a silly mistake.

According to Youtube user AdamC3046, who uploaded the video, the man in the 918 was barely getting used to his brand spanking new machine and failed to notice the Porsche started rolling backwards.

Another Porsche, this time a 911, was parked right behind the 918, so, naturally, an uber-minor crash followed. Luckily, there was no damage to either of the Zuffenhausen machines.

While the 918 Spyder driver, together with his passenger, were totally unaware of what was going on, the owner of the 911 was in a bit of a different state.

The man was in the driver's seat when the incident took place. Have you ever tried to swiftly exit a 911? Sure, the move is considerably easier to pull than if you' try this in a Ferrari or a Lamborghini, but it's still no flash episode.

Well, this guy demonstrates what has to be the quickest 911 descend ever, something that would make Le Mans drivers envious. The man also screamed as loud as his flat six could trying to make the 918 driver to pay attention, but without success.

His frenzy exit might seem a bit eccentric, but we totally feel for the man.
