Costly crash: Porsche Taycan hits Macan, smashes against wall
Two high-end Porsche models crashed in Madrid, leaving one atop another, making it a super expensive collision. Images from the accident scene have emerged on Twitter that show a Porsche Taycan 4S Cross Turismo ended up underneath a Porsche Macan. The impact of the collision was so heavy that both the vehicles crashed through a brick wall. The tweet claims that despite such a collision, no injuries have been reported.
Such a precarious situation reportedly made extracting the two vehicles difficult. Rescuers had to bring a crane to secure the Macan so they could remove the Taycan underneath it. Removing the Taycan exposed the extensive amount of damage caused to the wall. The hole created due to the crash could fit the Macan through sideways.

The Porsche Taycan 4S Cross Turismo is capable of churning out 562 hp of massive peak power. Porsche claims this EV can accelerate 0-100 kmph in just 3.9 seconds. Clearly, the EV packs quite a punch and driving it is not a joke. It is often seen that a heavy foot on accelerators in such high-performance cars results in loss of control and leads to such accidents.
This Porsche-on-Porsche crash is a perfect example of the importance of keeping the car under control. Ending up with a crossover on a car's windshield shouldn’t happen, and thankfully, in this case, it didn't become fatal as the whole thing could have been much worse.
Porsche is currently working on its second electric vehicle, which is going to be the Macan EV. The German sportscar brand is expected to launch the Macan EV sometime next year and aims to sell at least 80,000 units of the electric SUV, the same number as the internal combustion engine-powered version.
