Driving down the highway and getting the flat tire at 80 mph can rattle the average driver, and then there’s the sheer danger getting a flat at high speeds can cause. So, when a YouTube video posted by GTBOARD of a Porsche 997 GT2 popping a tire at 207 mph popped up, our hearts floated into our throats for a few seconds until we learned the fate of the driver and passenger.

The Porsche GT2 makes its way down the Autobahn, creeping toward 200 mph in what looks like a rather “leisurely” drive. Both driver and passenger seem unworried and look completely comfortable, as it can be assumed they’ve probably made such a drive many times before. But at 1:19 into the video, a terrible sound and visible vibration rocks the video, and then we see the driver make a hasty veer to the right hand shoulder. Luckily, it looks like the driver was able to get to the shoulder with little trouble, and no one was hurt. Check out the full video below.
