[update] ABC hat ein paar Details und Infos zu den Bildern: Viral Pics Show Chinese ‘Gangsta’ Fondling Porsches, Puppies and Purse (via Boing Boing).

It is not immediately known who this individual is, but there are some clues. He poses with two Porsches registered in two different cities: a Porsche Carrera with port city Tianjin plates and a Porsche Cayenne SUV with Beijing plates.

Of the two cars it seems like he has more clout in Tianjin, evident by the quadruple 8888 on his plates. Numerology figures in very prominently in Chinese culture and 8, being a homonym for “good fortune” in most Chinese dialects, is an especially auspicious number. All 8 license plates are usually reserved for the especially privileged whether by power, fortune or connections. So whoever this puppy-loving, murse carrying thug is, he or someone he knows or works for was able to put down a lot of money for those plates.
