Rare Porsche stolen as couple sleep
A Sydney couple has woken up to find their silver Porsche missing after thieves broke into their home, stole the keys and drove away in the rare car, which is worth more than a quarter of a million dollars.
Police said the couple woke up in their house on Campbell Street, Hunters Hill, about 6.15am yesterday and found thieves had broken in.
They took a number of belongings, including the Porsche 911 (997 generation), which is valued at $275,000, police said.
"It was parked in a garage and they've broken in, located the keys and taken the car," Gladesville police duty officer Inspector Scott Davis said.
"It's a pretty rare car."
Police could not confirm the exact model of the Porsche.
Several luxury cars were stolen earlier this year.
Two men broke into the garage of a unit on New South Head Road, Rose Bay, in the early hours of Saturday, June 30 and stole a black Porsche and a black Mercedes, which had only been brought home by the owner the day before.
Four days later police were tipped off and found the Porsche parked on Collins Street, Rozelle, and the Mercedes parked in a unit block on Cowell Street, Gladesville.
Both were in perfect condition.
Days before the Porsche and Mercedes were stolen, two men used bollards to block a garage entrance in Vaucluse to lure a driver out of his BMW.
The men demanded his car keys, got in the BMW and drove away.
