How many of us know someone who has been a victim of a car theft? I know someone who lost his Pajero from inside his home compound behind a high locked gate. Car was parked in front of the house at the car-porch. One morning, he found his car missing and it was just a few-month old vehicle. Another lost his Honda at a parking area near the LRT. I have no doubt you have your own car theft story.
The car in the picture is a Porsche Panamera, Porche's first luxury saloon car and is marketed as a higher performing alternative to other executive saloon cars.. It is a four-door saloon which was unveiled at the Shanghai Automobile Show in China in 2009.
This RM900,000 Porsche Panamera that was driven out of a showroom in Jalan Bukit Bintang on Oct 11 has been recovered.
Police believe there was a link to another theft of a luxury car in Cheras. In that incident, an Audi R8, worth around RM560,000, was stolen from a showroom there on Sept 6, using the same modus operandi.
The 31-year-old man who stole the car said he was paid RM30,000. He is still in remand.
