The owner of a 2015 Porsche Panamera e-Hybrid S parked their car in front of their home. The next morning they attempted to use the Porsche and discovered it missing. The owner contacted the Broward County Sheriff’s Office to report their Porsche stolen. The responding deputy prepared a stolen vehicle report, theft affidavit and had the vehicle’s information entered into the state and federal crime information computers, which automatically activates the LoJack® System concealed in the 4-door sedan.

Later that afternoon, an Auto Theft Task Force investigator picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Porsche on their on-board LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC), that are installed in law enforcement patrol vehicles and aircraft. The investigator began tracking the stolen Porsche by following the directional and audible cues on their PTC’s screen. The investigator, along with their backup from the Miami Police Department, located the Panamera parked in an elevated gated parking garage near SW 2nd Avenue and SW 12th Street. The Porsche was recovered, removed from state and federal crime information computer systems by the entering agency and towed to the police impound yard for safekeeping.

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2015 Porsche Panamera e-Hybrid S in November 2014 at Braman Porsche in West Palm Beach, Florida.
