He was driving a Porsche Panamera that did not have registration plates, and the car had an expired licence permit (the temporary permit from a dealer for a recently sold vehicle), said Minnaar.

He was trapped on the south-bound N1 near Maraisburg Road by the JMPD’s high-speed unit.

He is expected to appear in court on charges of reckless and negligent driving, and driving an unlicensed vehicle.
