Deadly North Carolina building explosion takes out vintage Porsche collection by Drew Johnson
A building containing 80 vintage Porsche was damaged in the Wednesday explosion.
A deadly building explosion that rocked the city of Durham, North Carolina on Wednesday morning also damaged a number of classic Porsche sports cars, a new report finds.
A structure known as the old Studebaker Dealership building collapsed and caught fire during the morning hours on Wednesday after some type of gas explosion occurred. Tragically, one person killed and another dozen injured.
According to Durham's Spectrum News, the blast also severely damaged a neighboring warehouse that housed the Ingram Collection, which is considered one of the largest vintage Porsche collection in the world.
Bob Ingram, the collection's owner, declined to comment on the situation, but a shot from a news helicopter clearly shows several Porsche cars damaged by the explosion. The collection has roughly 80 vehicles, and it remains unknown how many of those sustained damage.
