Porsche Taycan Hitting a Parked Tiger Was An Expensive Collision

It’s unclear how the Porsche Taycan 4S Cross Turismo ended up under the Porsche Macan, but the expensive crash did not result in any injuries. The accident occurred outside Madrid in Alcala de Henares on Sunday, August 21, at around 1pm local time.

Somehow, Taycan took the Tiger, which was parked along the road, to the hood and windshield. That’s pretty impressive, but the Taycan also travels fast enough to push a pair through a brick wall. There was no one on the Tigers at the time of the crash. The driver of the Taycan, a 45-year-old woman, was not injured, but she suffered from anxiety attacks after the crash.

The precarious situation made the extraction of both vehicles difficult. The rescue team needed the help of a crane to secure the Tigers so they could move the Taycan under it. Local emergency officials recorded the cleanup on video and posted it to Twitter. Releasing the Taycan shows a large amount of damage being caused to the wall. You can insert the Tiger through the hole to the side.

The Taycan 4S Cross Turismo is incredibly powerful, producing up to 562 horsepower (420 kilowatts). Porsche claims the car can reach 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in just 3.9 seconds. This is of course enough strength to get one into trouble if the right leg gets heavy.

The Macan will get a complete overhaul with the release of the Macan EV, which the automaker has already developed. Spy shots provide a glimpse of the next-generation crossover, but we know the model will sport Volkswagen’s Premium Electric Platform architecture. It will likely have single and dual motor configurations with all-wheel drive available.

The Porsche-on-Porsche accident is just another example of the importance of keeping your car under control. Ending up with a crossover on your windshield shouldn’t have happened, but we’re glad the driver was able to avoid this crash. The homeowner is also likely very unhappy, and things could get a lot worse.
