$200,000 Turbo S goes up in flames

Guys new Turbo S catches on fire shortly after parking. Ironically while he is shopping in Costco.

You are supposed to let those turbos cool before shut down.

Got to love that German, high made, exotic quality that catches fire even when you're not driving it! Theres nothing that compares.

And let the turbos cool before you shut it down? A completely stock car should NEVER have an issue like that. If I pay that much for a "high quality" Porsche the damn thing better have sufficient cooling for every day driving.

Well, I guess he won't be scared driving a MY 2014 GT3 before the fix then.
