Porsche 911 donated for target practice

A Porsche owner got so fed up with his car that he donated it to a gun club for target practice. The result was a 911 riddled with thousands of bullet holes.

The unnamed owner finally lost patience with his car when the engine failed. Faced with a $20,000 (£12,500) repair bill for a 2001 911 Carrera that wouldn't be worth much more than that, he decided to cut it loose instead.

So he donated it to the Commonwealth Second Amendment group. The group, based in Massachusetts, USA, is founded for the aim of 'preserving and expanding the rights of gun owners in the northeast.' It gladly took the Porsche and organised a fundraiser.

The group parked the car in its shooting range. More than 130 people turned up, firing over 10,000 rounds at the 911, leaving it looking like a novelty colander.

The event raised over $4,000 (£2,500) for the Second Amendment group, whose President Brent Carlton said: ”We have seen people shoot cars in the past but we think this is the first time anyone has shot up a Porsche.

”We're incredibly grateful to the owner for donating the car and he seemed more than happy too. He took the first shot.”
