A Porsche owner near Louisville Kentucky took every possible precaution to make sure their Porsche would be high and dry even if their house wasn’t. With rising flood waters rapidly approaching their home and no where to go… genius struck. What better idea than to tether a float to your home, drive your Porsche on and inflate it to ride out the high water. From the looks of the picture below, the water is at least four or five feet up the garage door. Kudos to the owner of this Porsche! UPDATE BELOW and at Interview with Floating Porsche Owner.
How far have you gone to keep your Porsche from damage?
UPDATE May-4-2011 9:06 PM: According to the local PCA chatboard, where this Porsche is located, the owners efforts, while heroic, didn’t save this Porsche. We’re waiting to hear back from the owner or someone close to them to verify, but that’s what’s being reported on the PCA chat service. We really hope it’s not true…
UPDATE May-6-2011: The rumors were wrong! The floating Porsche 964 survived. Read the interview with the owner of the floating Porsche for more pictures and details.
