Austrian police are testing a Porsche 911 as a traffic control car. They say the sight of the 177mph sportscar makes speeding motorists slam on their brakes.

A spokesman said the £65,000 sports car…[has] been a major success and they are planning to buy more.

He said: “The preventive effect is excellent. Drivers just needed to see it parked alongside the road and they slammed on the brakes. The only thing is that it’s a bit cramped. But there’s still enough space for the essential equipment like the speeding radar and the breathalyser.”

  1. And now this car is in the “Porsche-Museum” because the austrian ministry of interior couldn`t afford the money for repairs and so on. 😉 No Joke.

  2. What a shame. I bet the Polizei were disappointed by that.
