Grandmother wins £100,000 Porsche but decides to keep her Corsa
Each to their own! Grandmother wins £100,000 Porsche in raffle… but decides to SELL it and keep her Vauxhall Corsa instead
- Joanne McGuigan, 49, won the Porsche Carrera 4 Coupe in an online contest
- But she said would sell the car to pay her mortgage and treat her grandchildren
A grandmother who won a Porsche worth £100,000 has decided to sell it and keep her old Vauxhall Corsa.
Joanne McGuigan, from Fife, Scotland, was left ‘flabbergasted’ after she won a Porsche Carrera 4 Coupe in the Omaze Million Pound House Draw.
But Mrs McGuigan said she would prefer to keep her Vauxhall Corsa which has 44,000 miles on the clock and is worth £10,000.
The 49-year-old and her husband plan to sell the sports car to pay off their mortgage and treat their six children and four grandchildren.
She said her husband Iain, a car mechanic, did not believe her at first when she said she had won a Porsche.

Mrs McGuigan said: ‘I’d just come in from work and saw an email from Omaze saying I’d won something.
‘I thought it sounded too good to be true so didn’t even mention it to my husband when he came home.
‘Later that night I decided to check it again and was flabbergasted to find that my entry code did indeed match and I’d genuinely won a Porsche!
‘My husband was still dubious though and told me not to get my hopes up, but now the car is actually here I think he’s finally convinced!
‘I have never won anything before this so I’m still in shock, to be honest.
‘It’s the first time I’ve ever been inside a Porsche and the car is absolutely stunning – after going for a spin I can safely say it’s definitely quicker than my Vauxhall!
‘As much as my husband would love to keep it, the money we’ll get from selling it is life-changing – so we’re going to sell it and use the money to pay off our mortgage and treat our children and grandchildren.’
