The Big Apple’s annual auto show was “lit” on Thursday — thanks to a smokin’ hot Porsche 911 Turbo that burst into flames in the middle of the Javits Center.
The pricey sports car caught fire as workers were setting up a show room for DUB Magazine, which is holding it’s popular DUB Show event from April 1-3.
Videos of the fiery scene have been sweeping across social media, leaving car fanatics stunned.
Facebook user Vlad Shurigin posted a 30 second clip showing the rear of the Porsche in flames just before crews snuffed the blaze out with fire extinguishers.
“Whole new meaning of a show being ‘lit’,” wrote one commenter.
In another video posted to Instagram, workers can be heard shouting “fire” and “get out of here” as visitors frantically run away.
“That’s crazy!! So scary,” one user said.
Chris Sams, spokesman of the New York International Auto Show, told The Post that luckily, nobody was hurt.
“(It was) a small electrical fire underneath the hood of the car,” he said, adding that in his 18 years as a spokesman, he had never seen a showroom car go up in flames.
“When something like this happens, you want people to respond and respond quickly, and I know that is what happened, and know it was contained.”
While not very many people saw the Porsche catch fire in person, word spread quickly around the auto show — with many folks upset that they missed out on the action.
“Wow…Bummed I missed that,” said Robert K, 31. “Sounds exciting. I mean, to see an expensive car go up in flames, who wouldn’t want to see that?”
According to Porsche reps, the 911 Turbo — also known as the 993 Turbo — was manufactured from 1993 to 1998. It came in automatic or manual and currently costs around $130-180K.
Officials said it is capable of reaching speeds of up to 180 mph.
The New York International Auto show began last Friday and runs until April 3.
