Porsche Event in Montreal Marred by Reckless Driving Incident

Yesterday, a Cars and Coffee event in Montreal ended in tragedy as a BMW M4 lost control, injuring two individuals.


  • Porsche Prestige in Montreal hosted a Cars and Coffee event for car enthusiasts.

  • A BMW M4 in rare Urban Green color lost control during a power-slide maneuver.

  • The resulting crash seriously injured two individuals and damaged a lamp pole.


Yesterday, Porsche Prestige, a Porsche dealership in central Montreal, organized a Cars and Coffee event, a casual gathering for car aficionados and Porsche owners alike. These events typically serve as a platform for enthusiasts to come together, share insights, and admire an array of vehicles. Unfortunately, this particular gathering took an unexpected turn for the worse.


As the day’s activities were winding down, attendees witnessed an alarming incident. A 2018-2020 BMW M4 Coupe, notable for its rare Urban Green BMW Individual color, began its exit from the venue. Rather than a simple departure, the driver decided to engage in risky “power-slide” maneuvers. It quickly became apparent that the driver had miscalculated, leading to a loss of control over the vehicle.


The aftermath was distressing. The car, unable to regain its trajectory, collided with nearby bystanders and a lamp pole. The impact was significant, resulting in two individuals sustaining serious injuries. Immediate assistance was sought, and both victims were rushed to the hospital for medical attention. According to our sources, both individuals sustained serious injuries, but their life is not in danger. The driver has been taken into custody and will most likely be charged.

Such events underscore the critical importance of adhering to safety norms and regulations, especially in public gatherings where there’s a mix of pedestrians and vehicles. While Cars and Coffee events are known for showcasing high-performance vehicles and sometimes spirited driving, there’s a line that must not be crossed. It’s paramount that participants remember that public roads are not racetracks, and the safety of oneself and others should always be the top priority.
