The man reportedly began revving his engine so hard that the entire showroom filled with smoke. But, the destruction didn't stop there. An employee at the Porsche dealership claims that the man even got out of the car and started scribbling on at least one of the Porsche vehicles with a permanent marker. 

The man reportedly told the employee "I'm just having a bad day." According to Global News, the man and his girlfriend had just broken up.
