A Porsche 911 owner has been unpleasantly surprised when he took his car to a paint shop in Dubai.

Twitter user Ollie Martin says a friend of his took his Porsche 911 to a local garage to fix a dent and was stunned when he noticed he was no longer a Porsche owner. The dent was fixed but the German sports car was renamed to Porshce 911 by the mechanics.

The post from Ollie Martin was quickly retweeted by former Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson and gathered big online attention.
