Porsche catches fire at auto show

- A Porsche 911 Turbo caught fire at the New York International Auto Show at the Javits Center sending people fleeing and black smoke through the building.

A person was heard yelling "get outta here" as a person with a fire extinguisher quickly put out the flames.

Workers quickly extinguished the fire, but smoke filled the exhibition area.

No one was hurt.

The car was going to be part of a special presentation that opens to the public Friday but that car is now being removed from the floor.

The show is continuing through April 3, 2016.


So this just happened! Porsche blew up at the DUB show in NY!
