The vehicle, which is described as being similar to a Volkswagen Polo, was found crashed into a wall and ablaze on an unclassified road near Caddam Wood and the B955 in Kirriemuir at 6.45am on Friday.
Fire investigation suggests that it was likely burning from around 1am.
PC Sophie Stuart, from Forfar Police Station, said: “The car was found crashed into a wall and was left on fire for several hours before it was reported to emergency services – it’s very fortunate that there was not greater damage to the surrounding area.
