Props to Porsche for turning this tragedy around.




A few weeks ago, a flame explosion in a shipping container on the deck of the Grande America, an Italian merchandise ship that was bringing some 2,000 brand new Audis, a quartet of Porsche 911 GT2 RSs, and 33 other Porsches over to Brazil. Workers were unable to contain the flames, and the ship began to listing and tilt, before ultimately capsizing and dropping a day afterwards in some 15,000 feet of ocean, 200 miles off the French seashore .

Commonly, after a line is shut, it's near impossible to start it back up .
