The Mystery Of This Stolen Porsche Will Shock You

A classic Porsche has been found overturned at the base of a cliff nearly three decades after it was reported missing.

On January 20, 1991, the police department of Jackson County, Oregon, received a call about a crime that initially didn’t seem all that uncommon:

Someone wanted to report that their car had been stolen outside Southside Cinema in Medford, about 27 miles from the California border.

The expensive car was discovered in woodlands near Crater Lake National Park, Oregon.

Police say the classic car had not been seen for more than two decades when a dog walker stumbled across the overturned wreckage in remote woodland on 28 November.

The man walking in the wooded area had immediately called dispatch on to report the flipped vehicle.

The location of the crashed car was approximately 40 miles from Medford.

Soon enough, the police rushed to the location to examine the potential crime scene.

Upon further investigation, police confirmed that it was the same Porsche that was stolen 27 years prior.

It is not known how the car ended up at the bottom of the cliff or who had been driving it at the time.

The dispatch call on November 28th was followed by a full search of the area the next day.

On Wednesday, November 29th, detectives investigated the incident and found no human remains in the vicinity.

Some bones were found near to the wreckage but they were determined to have belonged to a deer.

According to KTVZ, Sgt. Julie Denney says detectives have not been able to reach the owner listed on the police report from 1991. If the car will ever be reunited with its rightful owner remains a mystery; but even so, it's a relief to be found.

In a statement, the department noted that:

"Heavy forest debris indicated the vehicle had been there for a significant period of time. The registration tags expired in 1991."

Believe it or not, this wasn’t the first time people found long-lost sports cars decades later.

In 1978, a group of children in Los Angeles, California, stumbled upon a car buried in their yard while playing outside their home.

In that case, an excavation revealed that it was a 1974 Dino 246 GTS—a car manufactured by Ferrari.

Somehow, the sports car had ended up buried in the front yard. Talk about strange!
