A damaged Porsche and two burnt scooters can be seen in a residential community on Taixing Road yesterday. The car, worth more than 1 million yuan (US$150,000), was severely damaged when the scooters parked nearby self-ignited while they were being charged on Sunday night. The scooters belonged to a Canadian and a Turk living in the community. The foreigners said they did not know which scooter caught fire first and they didn’t realize charging wasn’t allowed there.
