2004 Porsche 911 Owner Comments

problem #1

The event happened in 2008. Purchased Porsche GT 3 from Porsche dealer in 2006. Accelerating onto a limited access highway from an entrance ramp the car made a violent fishtail movement in a counterclocwise direction causing a 180 deg. Spin. I tried to correct but no response and then applied brakes heavily but car continued its movement eventually hitting a concrete barrier in the right rear. The car had to be towed and eventually totaled by the insurance company. At the impact site I did notice fluid on the road and also back up the road. Since my wife was injured and needed to be taken to the hospital, I was more focused on tending to her but as I look back and also reading about the coolant problems this car is having I would not be surprised if this car had a discharge of cooling fluid. As a side note, I do hold a competition drivers license with the scca and have competed for over 30 years and have owned Porsche for over 40 years. I presently own another 2004 GT 3 and very concerned about this problem. ## VIN failed ##
