I guess the yellow brake calipers didn't help much....

Looks like they color coded the wheel nuts so Porsche drivers can tell their right from their left.[:D][:D][:D]

I had my bumper repainted a few weeks back, and it was done at a Porsche bodyshop. WOW, they had about 80 Porsches in the yard in various states of damage, from small knocks to those that had clearly been involved in high-speed shunts. Lots of $/£ worth of damaged metal !

Well, that's a shame. Doesn't look like a LOT of damage tho'. Main structure is most likely ok, just need to fix up some of the body work and rear axle... of course, knowing that it s carbon fibre and so on, will end up causing $50k just to fix it.

Owner must be pissed...

I wonder if this is the same Porshe I saw in other forums "Stuck" on top of the center divider.

Yes indeed, the wheels are color coded.

I think it is that could explain why the wheels got the most damage. If you'll find those pics again - please post the link.

yup, it's not the same one.

The car has a lot of torque and almost no stability control. It's apparently a real b1tch to keep control of and many are the drivers that spin that thing out of control.

I prefer my car an SLR [;)]

I don't know much about vehicles, but I suspect the color coding is to indicate the thread direction. Chances are the right side uses right hand threads while the left side uses left hand threads. This would help ensure that the single lugs don't back out during normal operation of the vehicle.
