- The crashed Taycan

Someone Already Managed to Crash a Taycan

Can you people just learn to drive?

The Taycan is cool, even I'll admit that. Definitely not worth the money, but an awesome supercar none the less. So, color me surprised when I hop onto the internet and see one up for sale for a reasonable amount of money. This Taycan had only been owned for 36 hours when the new owner managed to crash it (electric cars do be like that)

If you're thinking about buying this Taycan, caveat emptor: it's not in good shape. Electric car YouTuber Rich Rebuilds checked it out, and the owner certainly did a number on it.

The Taycan's closest competitor, Tesla, has an awful relationship with salvage cars. It has been known to remove options, and even disable supercharger and DC fast charging on their cars. Outside of right to repair states, it can be impossible to even find parts for a Tesla. It remains to be seen wether or not Porsche will follow Tesla's lead, but it seems doubtful, as Porsche is an actual manufacturer.

So, should you buy it? Well, you'll certainly save a ton of money, and you won't have to worry about waiuting to buy it straight from Porsche. It will almost certainly be a challenge, however. There is likely almost no documentation and parts available for the car, and Porsche itself seems unlikely to fix the car (good luck getting a dealership to even touch it.)

  • Can I have it even though it’s smashed up! I’d like to put its drive train in a different body and resurrect something classic into an electric car.

    • Don’t get me wrong, I’m a true petrol head and want a V8, my point is that there are some old cars that have been scrapped and want to resurrect one of those with an electric drive train.
