Strange electrical accident: the Porsche Taycan ends up under the Porsche Macan

A Porsche vs. Porsche collision is always going to be expensive, but it seems the weakest component of this crash was the brick wall.

The first question here is very accurate, how did this happen?

Emergency services were called to a collision near Madrid in Spain where a Porsche Taycan 4S Cross Turismo (starting at $208,000 before options and road costs) lost control and crashed into a parked car, which turned out to be another Porsche.

The force of the impact was enough to not only throw the Porsche Macan (starting at $89,300 before options and roadside costs) through a brick wall, but also to lodge the black electric pickup underneath.

the 360kW/650Nm Taycan 4S it is capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds, so we can only assume that the performance of the car caught the driver off guard.

According to reports from Madrid Emergency Services in Twitter, the driver of the Taycan was in shock but otherwise uninjured, and the Macan was unoccupied at the time. The driver was taken to hospital as a precaution.

While the crash itself is strange, it’s the recovery that we find particularly interesting.

A crane was brought in to lift the Macan, allowing the Taycan to back up from below using its own power.

While the damage is extensive, it doesn’t appear to be terminal, although simply moving under its own power doesn’t indicate that a little ‘paint and paneling’ will get the black wagon back on the road.

It could be said that it is the Macan that seems to be worse off, and the wall even worse.
