A driver behind the wheel of a speedy silver Porsche 911 learned  the hard way that speeding up can sometimes slow you down.

The unidentified male driver was navigating San Francisco's hilly roads  last week when he reportedly swerved to get ahead of stopped traffic.  Instead, his own sports car came to a complete stop when he drove it right into a patch of wet cement.

Unfortunately for the driver, not only was he stuck,  but he was also caught on tape by Jim Gorzelany, an automotive writer for Forbes who just happened to be driving by and posted the incident on the magazine's website.

Gorzelany reports the man stayed in his six-figure sports car as construction workers scurried to shovel the cement out from underneath the car's wheels before the cement set even more.

The car was eventually removed, according to Gorzelany, but it was already too late. He says the likely damage will likely require replacing the car's undercarriage.
