Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This is the Porsche urban legend put to rest by Diomidis Spinellis who ran the Finance Ministry Information Systems'administration for 2 years and who should know (also: possibly registered here at the European Tribune IIRC).

One of the annoying aspects of this whole crisis is that urban legends and various exaggerated claims like this, originate often from the neolib economic / political establishment, people who have no clear idea of what is happening in Greece outside Athens' and Thessaloniki's poshest neighborhoods, and have never been in the vicinity of the poorest members of their society without being surrounded by armed bodyguards...
