Watch as the luxury EV lands on top of another car.
Porsche's first-ever all-electric car made some big waves when it hit the market, and has won over countless fans who would otherwise have visited Tesla showrooms for their electric fix. The Taycan has been dueling with the Tesla Model S for electric dominance, and while it has been a tight race, the Porsche is still winning over the hearts and minds of many sports car fans around the world. A common problem driver of high-performance EV cars such as the Taycan face is their pure inability to handle the vast amounts of power on offer, as well as getting their threads wrapped around the technology involved in operating one of these vehicles. In a short clip posted online, we can see what happens when a driver doesn't know how to drive this Porsche EV, and the end result is beautiful.
In the video we see a silver Taycan pulling up to the driveway of a house. The car remains stationary for a while and then suddenly makes a bolt for the SUV parked to the right. The Porsche, unfortunately, clips the rear end of the SUV and continues to plow into a second car after launching off of a 5-foot ledge. There are countless reasons why this accident could have taken place, but it is most likely that the driver mixed up the pedals, or that the person behind the wheel was a first-time driver.
When you look at the power figures and performance figures, it starts to make sense of why the car caused such an impressive accident. The two permanent magnet synchronous motors in the Taycan 4S produces up to 563 horsepower in over-boost mode with the optional high capacity battery fitted, and the Taycan Turbo can produce power outputs of up to 750 hp and 774 lb-ft of torque, resulting in a zero to sixty sprint time of only 2.6 seconds. With that kind of performance under your right foot, one false move can spell disaster, as we can clearly see in this video.
