The two had seen the car in an advertisement in a UAE English language daily and phoned its owner, pretending they want to buy the vehicle, a Porsche Cayenne, Emirat Alyoum daily said.
“One of them went to her and asked if he can test the car…he got in, drove away and never returned,” the paper said.
