This is the terrifying moment a Porsche veered across the wrong side of the road, missing a pedestrian and a cyclist by inches.

The car smashed into a Belisha beacon outside a restaurant in Fulham, south London, after narrowly missing the passersby yesterday.

In the clip, obtained exclusively by MailOnline, a male pedestrian is seen walking outside Gola Italian restaurant while swinging an umbrella.

Just after he passes the zebra crossing, the Porsche speeds across lanes towards oncoming traffic – just as a cyclist approaches.

The passerby is forced to  dodge to the left, while the bike rider veers out the way and jumps to his feet to avoid colliding with the car.

The entire front of the vehicle is ripped off as it makes contact with the post by the crossing.

Neither pedestrian nor cyclist were seriously injured in the crash, with both seen walking away afterwards. 

Onlookers – including the pedestrian – then walk over to the car to make sure the driver is ok. He appears dazed as he steps out of the vehicle to inspect the damage.

Footage of the near miss by the Porsche emerged days after another clip showed a youth smashing up a car of the same make with a wrench in broad daylight – after the owner said he could.

Shocked onlooker Ryan Hambrook captured the incident on Folkstone Road in Dover, Kent while driving back to his home in Deal, Kent after work. 

Mr Hambrook, 28, could hardly believe his eyes when he spotted the youth standing on top of and lashing the Porsche Carrera GT with a metal socket wrench on June 25.

Mr Hambrook stopped to record the incident in case it might be needed as evidence. 

The clip shows an older man, a younger man and a woman standing next to two Porsches – a red Cayman and a black Carrera GT. 

The younger male, who appears to be in his late teens, climbs over a metal railing before being handed the hand tool by the older man. 

He then begins to relentlessly smash the bonnet of the black sports car, while the older man appears to directs where he should batter the car. 

The youth, wearing a grey tracksuit, proceeds to thrash the car using the metal tool as hard as he can for around 50 seconds before the wrench is taken off him. 

Mr Hambrook shared the video to Facebook later that evening writing: ‘F***. Folkestone Road.’ 

The post has now collected hundreds of comments, likes and shares from Facebook users who were mixed in their responses. 

According to Kent Police, who investigated the incident, the youth, pictured, had the owner's permission to attack the grand tourer

Some social media users speculated that it was the owner of the car who was encouraging the damage. 

Locals claimed that the vehicle was later discovered abandoned at the side of a road. 

Lau Ra said: ‘So the people walking past then, not one even looked.

‘Are we so accustomed to this behaviour in Dover that people don’t even blink an eye? 

Kent Police confirmed that because the owner wanted his car damaged, no offences have taken place

Speaking to MailOnline, Mr Hambrook, who works in drainage, said: ‘I was driving back from work and I saw the older guy stood on top of the car hitting it.

‘I assumed he didn’t own the car and the owner would want as much evidence as he needed so I filmed it until I’d gotten enough evidence and then drove home. 

‘I was shocked to see it happening, it’s not something you see every day.

 ‘Folkestone Road isn’t the best of areas but I’ve never seen anything like that. 

‘I just thought, “Well, you don’t see that every day.”‘ 

A Kent Police spokesman told MailOnline: ‘Kent Police received a report of possible criminal damage to a car in Folkestone Road, Dover at 6.10pm on Friday, June 25, 2021. 

‘Officers attended and spoke to the registered owner of the vehicle who said he had given permission for the damage to be caused and no offences were reported.’
