Teenager Fails To Carjack Porsche, Thwarted By Manual Transmission
A Porsche 911 Turbo can hit 0-6-MPH in under 4 seconds, unless you don’t know how to use the clutch. A New Jersey teenager was arrested after attempting a carjacking, only to find out he doesn’t know how to drive a stick.
According to NJ.com, the 18-year-old could go to prison for up to 15 years for what he did. He and a buddy pulled up next to the Porsche in a stolen BMW, then he got out of the car and brandished a handgun, demanding the driver of the Porsche exit his vehicle.
Our guy’s accomplice sped off in the stolen BMW, but our guy managed to stall the Porsche because he had no idea how to drive a manual transmission. He then tried to flee on foot, but the driver had already flagged down police and they caught the would-be carjacker pretty quickly.
15 years in prison for almost driving a Porsche, not a smart move.
