A barn find researcher has turned a derelict ‘abandoned’ Porsche back into a sparkling sports car – and it could be worth a staggering £10,000.
The explorer went to an undisclosed location in the UK to rescue a Porsche belonging to a man who is currently unable to drive his pride due to health reasons.
YouTube user @imstozke took to social media to show his 39,600 subscribers how he transformed this 141,000-mile Porsche Cayman S in less than a day.
He explained, “On the first visit, I knocked on the door and got no answer.”
“So I thought it best to shoot home, get a broom and try to stop the area looking so deserted.
“Since I know first hand what people do with abandoned places and since I live close to this place, I thought why not.”
“While I was sweeping away the leaves that had accumulated over the years, the owner came to the door and asked what I was doing. Well, that’s where it got interesting.”
The owner of the Porsche gave him permission to clean his car, but only on the condition that he accept a daily wage.
The man first levitates the front trunk of the Porsche and then uses a pressure washer to leave the car in pristine condition.
After giving the car a quick wash, the urban researcher said, “This paintwork here is immaculate. There are a few small imperfections here and there…”
He then takes care of the interior of the car, starts closing the doors, then vacuums the seats and cleans the tires.
The poster showed the car’s owner crying after seeing his amazing Porsche in perfect condition.
The video went viral on YouTube with more than 14,000 views and 164 comments — and most people were quick to comment.
One said: “Fair play to you mate you saved the man’s day as he was having a crappy time as not many people in the hospital would have done that for him.”
Another said: “You’re a diamond from a mate. What a great gesture and to think that he can now have all his pride (Porsche) back on his hands is absolutely priceless.”
