The automotive world has lost yet another supercar as an owner of a rare Porsche 959 managed to flip his car upside down in Geneva, Switzerland.

Porsche only made 337 units of the Group B rally car turned road legal automobile and this one is in real bad shape after its kevlar roof was reduced to a crumpled mess along with busted taillights and damaged fenders.

As for the cause of the unfortunate incident, witnesses state that the car was going too fast on a very wet section of the road which caused the driver to lose control of the car, hit the guardrail and finally land on its roof.

Hopefully the car be repaired to its former glory but we’re guessing it is going to cost quite a fortune since it is such a technologically-advanced car in the 80s and was only built in small numbers.

If the body can’t be saved, we sure hope that the 2.9-liter turbocharged flat-six and AWD system is somehow salvageable.
