Imagine how much better this would have been if it was a 911 GT3. That would have been good for reaching the 3rd story... at least... if not the 4th or 5th floors.

I saw the other post, which makes their "flight pattern" more clear. But it's still amazing how they missed those wires, and the guy wires attached to that power pole.

On a go kart once but that was 2 feet off the ground... But never in a Porsche.

If they were in a GT3 or GT2 would they have cleared the house completely due to the higher speed, or would the downforce have still sent them into the 2nd story?

I'm always amazed that there are any human beings over the age of 27. By that point, we've all done so many stupid things we should be dead dozens of times over.

I dunno… but if it was Tracy Morgan in a brand new Bugatti Veyron, it probably would have ended up in the basement.

I'm actually surprised no one has done a back of the envelope calc to figure out roughly what speed they might have been going.

Between 100 and 120 mph in my opinion. Fast enough but not too fast.
