throw a Porsche at someone
 v. phr.— «An incident like this brings home the sheer scale of military spending. In Afghanistan, where Javelin heat-seeking missiles are sometimes launched against Taliban personnel, our soldiers call it, with characteristic wit, “throwing a Porsche at them,” since the weapons cost £65,000 apiece.» —“Whoops-a-daisy” Telegraph (United Kingdom) Feb. 24, 2008.
