Parking can be a tricky business especially when inclinations and slopes are involved. But in what is being called a major - and super expensive - blunder, a Porsche Taycan hit an SUV in the driveway and then landed over another car. All of this carnage was caught on cam.

In the video that has gone viral on the internet, the Porsche can be seen slowly climbing up a slope to approach the parking area. Its driver then unexpectedly hits the accelerator, losing control of the car which swerves towards the right. The Porsche then hits a parked blacked SUV in the driveway.
