Disgusted. Intrigued. Puzzled. Horrified. Those are all words that we could use to describe the video below, and they still wouldn't sum up our feelings for a perfectly good Porsche being used as a flamethrower all because someone wanted a little attention.

Even though we can't relate with car owners are so worried about ruining their cars that they rarely take them out of the garage, that's nothing compared to opposite extreme of revving an engine so long the exhaust catches fire.

Click below to watch a video recently taken in Dubai and later uploaded on YouTube. You've been warned engineering aficionados: You probably won't like what you see.

While we will admit it was nice to hear the car roar, that doesn't mean a perfectly good 911 had to suffer for it. It's practically torture.

Here's a closer look at the Porsche catching fire after the driver revved the engine for more than 4 minutes.

YouTube user Patrick3331, who uploaded the video, told a viewer in the comments section that the engine should be "okay" since their stunt didn't take place in the summer.

The exhaust, however, was a "little hot." We can only imagine.
