Carlos Ghosn hit a motorcycle and its two passengers while making a U-turn in central Tokyo earlier this month. The two motorcyclists suffered only minor injuries.

But what has caught the public's attention is that Ghosn was driving ... a Porsche.
Quipped a French auto executive: "That's his first communication accident."
