Looters Destroy Porsche 911 GT3 RS in Los Angeles

Stores vandalized, Ferraris had to be moved.

  • Destroyed 911 GT3 RS latest example of automotive vandalism during protests related to the murder of George Floyd

  • Ferrari of Beverly Hills moved all of its vehicles out of the showroom to avoid theft and damages


As civil unrest continues and protests break out all over the United States in the wake of the murder of George Floyd on May 25, the number of cases of theft and vandalism continue to rise. This particular video shot by YouTuber Effspot shows a Porsche 911 GT3 RS left in ruins after protesters marched on Los Angeles.

The video was shot on May 31 and therefore preceded a night of theft and looting in an Oakland FCA dealership where several models were stolen including many Dodge Challengers. We can also see at the beginning of the video the entire inventory of Ferrari of Beverly Hills being moved out of harms way.

The ruined Porsche shows up at at the end of the video, around the 27-minute mark. It’s stopped in the middle of the street with the door still open. We’re not sure if the driver was forced out of the vehicle or why the car was left there, but we can see significant damage. The windows have been broken, graffiti is sprayed across the door and hood, and the tires have been slashed.

This particular example is a 997-generation Porsche 911 GT3 RS. Very few examples were available in black, and this is what it originally would have looked like.

It can’t be a regular 911 with the Aerokit package because of the air vent at the bottom of the hood. It’s definitely a GT3 RS from that era, albeit one without the orange detailing.

The rest of the video shows the extent of the looting in various parts of the city including in high-end stores. Unfortunately, four days later, things don’t appear to want to get better any time soon.
