A large explosion rocked Charlotte, North Carolina on April 10, 2019, something that sadly claimed the life of one individual and injured 15. The cause of the accident on N. Duke Street is reported to be gas related, which would certainly explain the destruction. The building itself also contained one of America’s largest Porsche collections according to the Charlotte Observer.
The Ingram Collection consisted of some incredibly rare Porsche sports cars, including a 2.7 RS, numerous 356s, a Carrera GT, 959, and the latest Porsche 918 Spyder. It is said that the third oldest Porsche 356 in existence also fell victim to the destruction.
The Ingram Collection, which has been praised as one of the largest collections of #vintage Porsches in the world, was being stored in a warehouse connected to the building that exploded in Durham this morning. Aerial footage shows the collection sustained severe damage
