In what is being described as the worst parking fail ever, a Porsche driver accidentally hit the accelerator, drove over a wall and crashed into another car. CCTV footage shows the motorist's disastrous parking fail as he lost control of his Porsche Taycan after making his way up a sloped driveway. According to The Sun, the footage was filmed in Manningtree, Essex in the UK.
In the clip, the Porsche is seen slowly moving up a sloped driveway. It stops before unexpectedly swerving to the right and hitting a black SUV. Then, the luxury vehicle careens over a wall and lands on top of another car parked below before crashing on the road.
According to the Daily Mail, the driver managed to escape unhurt. His brand new vehicle wasn't as lucky, though. It is believed that he had purchased the Porsche Taycan just five days before the accident occurred. The luxury vehicle is estimated to cost 83,000 pounds - or approximately Rs 81 lakh.
