Wait, is this pro golfer Patrick Reed's wrecked Porsche 911 GT2 RS on Copart?

UPDATE: 04/27/21 7:39 pm ET: This The article has been updated with additional information from VINwiki indicating that the cars are indeed a match.

Earlier this week, we reported on a badly mangled and very green Porsche 911 GT2 RS spotted on Copart. Now, we’ve stumbled upon a tantalizing piece of information that suggests the wrecked GT2 may have belonged to none other than golf pro Patrick Reed. While we can’t say for sure that this car is his, some evidence strongly suggests that it is the case.

The car in question is a 2019 Porsche 911 GT2 RS, currently listed as residing in Houston, Texas, according to Copart. The car shows severe damage to almost every panel, including the roof. In particular, the front bumper is completely destroyed on the driver’s side, exposing the wheel, while both sides of the car are badly damaged. The rear wing itself is completely missing. Tragically, the incident occurred with just 361 miles on the clock. The supercar was destroyed before the end of the break-in period.

A trail of breadcrumbs leads to Patrick Reed. This came first of The Drive A post on Reddit pointed out that the car belonged to a pro golfer. As it turns out, Reid had previously shared photos of a Porsche 911 GT2 RS that bore a striking resemblance to the photo that was destroyed on Copart. According to Golfweek Report back in 2019, Reed recently took delivery of his Porsche 911 GT2 RS, ordered after his Masters win in 2018, presumably to match his new jacket. The color, wheels and sticker pack all point in the direction of the professional golfer. Also, like the photo Reid posted on Instagram four years ago, the wrecked car on Copart also has yellow calipers, yellow stitching and yellow seatbelts.

Further supporting the case, information was posted VINwiki indicating that the car actually belonged to Reed. A post on the site outlines the car’s spec and original VIN number, which matches what we see on the Copart listing.

As with any speculation, there is always a chance that we may be off the mark. It’s entirely possible that the wrecked Porsche 911 GT2 doesn’t belong to Patrick Reed, and it’s just a coincidence that his car looks similar to the car in question. Regardless, the evidence we’ve uncovered so far makes a compelling case, especially considering the VIN match. Plus, Porsche doesn’t churn out that many GT2 RSs every year, let alone this particular spec.

If this is indeed Patrick Reed’s Porsche, it would be a sad end to a beautiful car. The GT2 RS is a highly regarded and highly sought after machine with a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged flat-six engine capable of churning out 690 horsepower. With a top speed of 211 mph and a 0-60 time of just 2.6 seconds, it’s a car that commands respect and caution in equal measure. It’s no wonder that a moment of overzealousness or a simple mistake can result in such a devastating crash.

We can only hope that it finds its way into the hands of someone capable of restoring it to its former glory. Given the degree of damage, it may be slightly more than the engine donor. In the meantime, let this serve as a reminder that even the most skilled drivers can run into trouble when faced with the immense power of a supercar.

Stay tuned as we continue to investigate the mystery of the wrecked Porsche 911 GT2 RS and whether or not it actually belongs to golf star Patrick Reed. Drive Reid’s team has been contacted for comment and will update this article accordingly. In the meantime, take a look at the pictures and decide for yourself. And, as always, remember to drive responsibly and with respect for the machines we love.
