We begin with interesting stories that emanate from our country. This person had stolen a luxury car from their showroom in broad daylight. In 2007, in Penang, this audacious car theft had happened. The person whose identity is not known untill today had dressed like a bussinesman holding a chequebook and visiting the Porsche showroom. He had set his sight at the Porsche 911 Targa 4 model, costing RM1 million. He somehow managed to convince the salesperson for the keys of Porsche. He dumbfounded everyone once he got the keys by driving off the car by smashing through the showroom window. His audacious scheme had failed as the vehicle had run of fuel after driving the car for 2km and was forced to abandon the vehicle. The vehicle was recovered by police and kept in the police compound for the required paperwork.

Nonetheless, again the car had been stolen from the police compound itself as the thief had come back and refuelled the car and again surprised everyone. He can do these as he still has the Porsche key in his hand. The police had been a hot pursuit for the man; therefore, the man had conceded defeat and abandoned the car in a secluded place. Incredibly, the man’s identity is not known until today.  

Another absurd car theft attempt had happened in 2017 in Florida, US. The previous story in our country is that a man drove the car from the showroom. However, in Florida, it is more intrepid as the thief called Florida Man had attempted to steal a police car while the police officers were in the vehicle. The officer writes a report in the patrol car while the engine is running idle, hearing some unusual noise from behind the car. His police instinct had kicked in once he had checked behind his car; the Florida Man had run away in a failed attempt to steal the police car. The Florida Man’s reasoning is absurd as he wants to drive the vehicle to make his way home.
