Maybe Can Am had a new Polaris at the factory and in typical RZR fashion it just burst into flames. Lol!

Crazy, wonder how many units were destroyed.  Bad for Can-Am customers, is this their main plant? etc?

Looks like a lot of cars ready to ship just went up in smoke, glad I'm not waiting for one. The wait for the Speed car might be worth it now LOL

Looks like the fire is just in the outside storage lot. Any pics of the building Burning?  Probably sabotage by some angry Golfer..

Looking at Nikals post with photos then the video I would say a lot!! Just the one pic is 12 units. Millions of $$$ in damage/loss might be an understatement.

I believe they have 3 facilities in Mexico.  This facility looked like it was a warehouse of finished vehicles.   Whoever was waiting for their Can Am to arrive at the dealer in the next few weeks, just got a much longer wait.

Not to worry production will start up again.  Per the article they only lost 6 days of production.   Just say no to walking golf courses.  LOL

Yeah, if it’s 100 units, that’s nothing… if it’s 2500… it will change the market

All I know is that last week I drove by the warehouse/ storage lot where you usually see a few of these stacks of crates waiting to be shipped to the local dealers and it was empty, like maybe they moved empty, but they have not.
