It was not a good day to own a black Porsche Cayenne in Russia this week. Imagine for a moment that you had the good fortune to overcome the odds, make a few Rubles and enjoy a slice of the good life by purchasing your very own Porsche Cayenne. Now imagine you're sitting in traffic, minding your own business, when your world is suddenly turned upside down. BOOM, a "flash-bang" grenade explodes in your lap, you're yanked from behind the wheel and on the ground before you even know what's happening. Russian SWAT teams are that efficient. Unfortunately, they aren't that good at telling one Cayenne or plate from another. That's right, it's the wrong car!!!! See the video after the back-story.
Here's the back story according to a post on thatsjustnotright.com.
"The Russian SWAT team is called out after a robbery in Moscow in which one person was sadly shot dead and another injured. The robbers escaped before the team arrived, but reports came in saying they where driving down Lenin Ave in a Porsche Cayenne with the number plate 177-177. The SWAT team raced to a junction on Lenin Avenue and waited.
They see the Porsche, attack it, break the windows, throw light grenades inside the car but then notice that instead of the gang of Southerners there are only two Slavic dudes.......... which, as they explained later, were going into downtown Moscow for lunch!
While police were processing those first guys they get a message by radio that another black Cayenne with 177 plates has passed by. As you see the second one was correct. They had the same numbers on the plates but different letters.
So the second Porsche is hit, and right guys get caught......... but seriously worked over for the inconvenience they caused.
As an after note, the first innocent guys had the car repaired and given a sincere apology. Sadly, prior to this, someone had been shot dead by the gang in the second Cayenne, but bejayus, imagine going out for lunch and that happened to you."

Seriously, I know that Porsche has sold more than 250,000 Cayennes, but two (2) black ones, in Moscow, on the same street, with similar license plates.... If I were the guy in the first Cayenne I'd be thanking my lucky stars and buying a lotto ticket. He's gotta be due for some good luck!!!
