These protestors may have destroyed the wrong Porsche


In France there have been a number of cars that have been destroyed by the Yellow Vests. One of the main things they are protesting is the high diesel fuel taxes that are part of some climate change legislation. Diesel vehicles are very popular in France, but since their emissions tend to be higher than gas powered vehicles they are hit hardest.

Since the tax hits the working class most, expensive makes are a prime target.

Unfortunately, for the owner of the Porsche Cayman in this video, the protesters don’t look up the current value of the vehicles they decide to destroy. Currently, a 987 Cayman like the one in the footage costs the US equivalent of between $15,000 and $30,000 depending on the condition, year and mileage.

This means they likely destroyed a working class gentleman’s ride.

I’m all for peaceful protesting, but when you destroy property or hurt people, it has gone too far.
