Total damage after 24 km: electric Porsche with sad fate

from Tobias Stahl on May 22nd, 2020

If a new vehicle has been driven to scrap by its owner after just a few kilometers, this is often due to the unusually strong motorization of the car. Electric cars are of course no exception to this phenomenon, as a sad example from the United States shows.

The Porsche Taycan has not only made waves in the world of electric cars, but is also a household name for sports car fans. The car is not only the first electric car from Porsche, but actually a thoroughbred athlete that promises fun. You can also get over the price for many: You have to leaf around at least around 150,000 euros for a Taycan Turbo.

But you get something for that: 680 hp accelerate the Zuffenhausen electric sports car from 0 to 100 km / h in around three seconds. The Stromer reaches 200 km / h in around ten seconds.

Perhaps it was precisely this rapid acceleration that was now dooming a driver in the US state of New Jersey. The 2020 Porsche Taycan Turbo in black was now for sale on the website of the online vehicle auction house Copart. At first glance, the car may still look acceptable, but when you take a closer look, it becomes clear that something pretty bad must have happened to the electric sports car.

The front fender on the driver’s side and part of the front apron are scratched and the front alloy wheels are crooked. According to the auction list, the Taycan has suffered severe subsoil damage. The side airbags have also triggered. So it must have been a rather rough collision that killed the Porsche.

Judging by the position of the rear wheels, the rear suspension has been destroyed, indicating that the Taycan probably made a hard landing from a decent height. Probably the bitterest thing about the whole thing: The Taycan only had 15 miles on the clock, the equivalent of around 24 kilometers. Thus, it was probably the first or one of the former owner’s first trips.

Although it has not been finally clarified whether this is an irretrievable total loss, a repair will probably not make sense from a financial point of view. In such serious accidents, for safety reasons, the battery must always be replaced, for example, before the journey can be restarted. This fact in combination with the obviously destroyed rear axle and the possibly defective engine probably mean that this car can still be used as a spare parts dispenser.
