Admit it, at one point or another we've all done it. There's a hard turn ahead or maybe you need to make a U-turn. Then, just as the rear-end starts to come around you touch the gas a smidge harder to snap the rear-end around. If you're lucky you break traction, spin the tires a touch and head on down the road. If you're unlucky, this happens.
There are conflicting reports on exactly what happened, but one way or another this Cayman lost its entire rear wheel, brake assembly and all, during this weekend's H20 International gathering in Ocean City, Maryland.
One account of the incident suggests the driver of the Cayman was attempting to do donuts when he lost control of the Cayman and slammed into a curb. However, another witness to the event, who we communicated with, suggests it was more of an aggressive U-turn gone wrong. Either way, the wet conditions, what looks like modified suspension and the biggest wing we've ever seen on a Cayman didn't help the driver any.
