A man is fighting for life after being hit by a Porsche in Chorlton .

The 26-year-old was struck on Wilbraham Road near the Spread Eagle pub shortly before 10.30pm last night.

Police are now searching for the driver of the black Porsche Panamera, which did not stop at the scene.

The high-powered sports car,  registration number MX10 OBK, was found burnt out on Brookburn Road, outside the Bowling Green pub, in the early hours of Tuesday.

Greater Manchester Police confirmed that officers were called to reports of a hit and run incident on Wilbraham Road at 10.22pm on Monday night and found a man with a critical head injury.

The man was taken to Manchester Royal Infirmary and then transferred to Salford Royal in the early hours.

The car was found dumped and burnt out in the car park at the entrance to Chorlton Meadows, opposite the Bowling Green pub.

The vehicle was so badly burnt only the paintwork on its bonnet was still visible giving a clue of its original colour.

Large clumps of copper wiring could be seen hanging from the engine and dashboard but otherwise the inside was completely destroyed.

However the MEN understands vital evidence that the car was involved in a collision is thought to remain on the vehicle.

Investigating Officer, Sergeant Lee Westhead said, A dedicated team of specialist officers are now investigating this collision.

The driver knows who they are and what they have done, they should also know that we will find them no matter how long it takes and we will bring them to account.

I will appeal directly to the driver and say come and speak to the Police now on your terms before we come knocking on your door. I will also appeal to the family and friends of the driver.

Do not protect this person, we will investigate and take action against anyone who does. This is no time for misplaced loyalty, a young man is fighting for his life.

An eye-witness, who did not want to be named, and was first to the scene said the man hit was crossing the road at the time.

The witness added: When I first got there I was shouting ‘help’ and it took a few minutes for people to come over.

He was face down on the road and looked like he had a bad head injury.

Lots of people were trying to talk to him but he wasn’t responding.

There was a number plate at the scene that had come off the car and the police took it away. The car didn’t stop, it was driving down the middle of the road at speed and it looked like a chunkier Porsche, like a 4×4 type, and it was definitely black.

Signs have been tied to lamp posts outside the Spread Eagle pub Wilbraham Road pub asking witnesses to contact police.

Shocked parents and children arriving at Brookburn Primary near the burnt out car stopped to see the scene.

One parent said: You really have to be scum of the earth to do something like this, hit someone and not stop, then burn the car.

I have two children myself — it makes you think, it could have been them.

Other passersby spoke of seeing police cars race to The Spread Eagle last night but not realising the car was connected to that incident.

The car park where it is abandoned is the main entrance to the Chorlton Meadows area which leads down onto the River Mersey and is popular with joggers and dog walkers.

Anyone who knows the identity of the driver, witnessed the collision or has any information, should contact 01618564741 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
