Go to a province that doesn't have that many high end cars (compare dto Cali, NY, Toronto, Texas, Vancity)...even a Porsche dealership will want to flex the lambo out, they are rare in Quebec.

It crashed....the owner got shafted. He's classy guy, not swearing and what no on the forum. But still got shafted.

Porsche Lauzon is seen as a very reputable dealership... people in the thread couldn't believe it when they heard Lauzon crashed the car.

And yeah the owner seems very calm about the situation. I would be flipping out lol

It's time to break out the lawyers. How can any company or business in this situation expect to get away with it? Ridiculous... I also can not fathom how this happened. It takes a LOT of speed, even in the rain, to crash a machine like that.

50k is a lot even if you do own a lambo. Lambos aren't THAT expensive from a $$$ comparison, lawyers should be all over this.

Makes you want to purchase all the equipment to balance your own damned tires.

Yeah, 50k is a lot to swallow. That's exactly why the dealership should cut him a check, and fire that moron who decided he wanted to joy ride in someone else's exotic. I don't think this dealership realizes what it stands to lose in terms of business if they shaft this innocent owner.

Between this one and the m5 one , makes me scared to ever own an exotic. I feel bad for the owner. Damn stealership.

Issues's been resolved. The dealership compensated him for the loss of value. Car is being repaired. Amazing what an internet forum can do... quite persuasive.

With a little arm twisting in the form of bad PR.

+1 They claim they were waiting on insurance money, but since press got so bad they decided to pay out of pocket! Good decision imo
