apparently this was a test car and the crushed car was put up as some art work.

this I got from reading the comments on that page.

They remove the plate earlier in the scene.

The number of test cars that get crushed are amazing. The Porsche might look normal but might have been running prototype engines etc or was the final development 997 even a press one. Manufacturers don't sell these cars onto the public since there could be quality issues/ reliability issues that could tarnish their reputation
