The Porsche Boxster is a powerful car, although it is just an entry level Porsche. It comes with a 2.7-litre, naturally aspirated, flat six engine that produces 261 horsepower.
Although these figures sound puny compared to the McLaren P1 or the Ferrari LaFerrari, the engine can help the car accelerate to 100 km/h from a standstill in 5.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 264 km/h.
Looking at these figures, one should know that it is a potent car, especially if all these ponies are used to their full potential on public roads.
That is exactly the point that was not understood by a person who decides to perform a risky overtaking maneuver and lost control of his car and slammed into a tree.
This incident that took place in Germany witnessed the car splitting in half after the impact and the 55 year old who was driving lost his life unfortunately.
This is one reminder that cars such as these should not be pushed to its full potential on public roads which may harm other road users.
