​Angry Businessman Crashes £100k Porsche Into Dealership

​Angry Businessman Crashes £100k Porsche Into Dealership

An angry businessman rammed his (super expensive) Porsche Cayenne into a dealership, with the whole debacle caught on camera:

The fuming businessman reportedly had a row with the dealership about buying a new Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo - judging from the destruction, it must have been quite some row.

The incident took place in Taichung City in West Taiwan, with footage showing how the 42-year-old man, who is known only by his surname of Chu, slammed his car into the entrance of the dealership.

To put just how angry he was into context, the car that he crashed into the building was worth NT$4 million (£100,000 / US$135,354).

As stunned staff sidled over to the wreck, Chu went back for more, driving the car further into the building to smash into the front desk.

Chu - who has been described as a 'loyal Porsche fan' - had apparently ordered a new Panamera Sport Turismo from the dealership back in January 2017, opting for the pricey add-on of 4D Chassis Control.

The car has a not-so-tiny starting price of NT$5.98 million (£147,646 / US$199,845), but it would have jumped up to NT$7.46m (£184,187 / US$249,305) with the extras he wanted.

Chu's assistant helped secure the deal, paying NT$2m (£50,000 / US$67,677) for a deposit, but when the Porsche was shipped to him in November, it didn't have any of those expensive add-ons.

Staff at the dealership said that his sales contract didn't include those all-important extras - meaning it's likely that his assistant could have forgotten to request them. Awkward.

Chu was then so angry that he refused to pay the remaining balance for the car, and demanded that he got his deposit back. However, the dealership wouldn't budge, and threatened to keep the hefty deposit if he didn't honour their sales agreement - giving him five days' notice to cough up.

That didn't go down too well with Chu, evidently, as he then proceeded to drive his Porsche Cayenne into the dealership in protest before arguing with management inside.

He was arrested minutes later by Taichung City police, who found a pickaxe and petrol in his Cayenne - though it's not clear whether Chu had plans to use them during the conflict.

In a public statement, Chu admitted that he 'regretted' his actions, but also claimed that he'd only crashed into the business after swerving to avoid a car that had run a red light.

Authorities have since revealed that Chu has prior convictions from 10 years ago, including burglary and fraud, but the incident is still under investigation.
