Say it with me now: nope nope nope nope nope nope nope...

This Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport driver had the insane ride of his life after losing control at 160 mph on one of the most unforgiving tracks on Earth: the Nürburgring Nordschleife.


Somehow, someway he manages to keep the spinning top of a Porsche out of the walls. Phew.

So, at the time the backend came out, he was doing 227 kph, which is 141 mph, not 160. And this really isn’t that insane of a spin; tank slapper at a quick speed, absolutely. The car didn’t even get sideways until 60 mph, and by then the gravel trap saved him. Hardly the “best save ever”.
