|Brazil Bound Container Ship Carrying 2,000 Cars Sinks Into The Atlantic Ocean by obafemee80(m): 7:26pm On Mar 20, 2019|
A Brazil bound Italian cargo ship named Grande America sank off the coast of France on March 12 following a fire that broke on one of the containers on deck, taking with it some 2,000 cars, including three dozen Porsches and several Audi models.
All 27 crew members aboard were rescued by the British military before the ship sank to a depth of 15,000 feet beneath the surface of the ocean on March 12 .
Sources said the cargo ship carried at least four examples of the $293,200 Porsche 911 GT2 RS, along with few other models, including 718 Caymans and Boxsters, as well as Cayennes.
After the incident, Porsche wrote a letter to its Brazilian customers informing them that they would reproduce the Porsche 911 GT2 RS specially for them.
"We are sorry to inform you that, due to a fire, a Grimaldi group ship, that was transporting your vehicle, sank on March 12, 2019,’ the company wrote to its customers.
Audi Brazil also reportedly confirmed that the ship was carrying a number of A3, A5, Q7, RS4, and RS5 models.
