Porsche Taycan crashes into parked Macan

It’s unclear how the Porsche Taycan 4S Cross Turismo ended up under a Porsche Macan, but the costly collision left no one injured. The accident happened just outside Madrid, in Alcalá de Henares, on Sunday August 21, around 1 p.m. local time.

Somehow the Taycan picked up the Macan, which was parked along the street, on its hood and windshield. That’s pretty impressive, but the Taycan had to be going fast enough for both cars to find themselves driving through a brick wall as well. No one was in the SUV at the time of the accident. The driver of the electric station wagon, a 45-year-old woman, was uninjured but suffered an anxiety attack after the crash.

The precarious situation made it difficult to extract the two vehicles. Rescuers needed the help of a crane to secure the Macan so they could pull out the Taycan that was underneath. Local emergency services officials filmed the cleanup and posted it on Twitter. The removal of the Taycan revealed the extent of the damage to the wall.

As a reminder, the Taycan 4S Cross Turismo packs quite a punch, with an output of 571 horsepower (420 kilowatts). Porsche claims the car can hit 100 km/h in just 4.1 seconds. That’s definitely enough power to get into trouble if the right foot gets heavy.

For its part, the Macan (the model in general, not the one built into the wall) is about to undergo a complete overhaul with the release of the Macan EV, which the manufacturer is already developing. Spy photos give glimpses of the next-gen crossover, but we know the model will be based on Volkswagen’s Premium Electric Platform architecture. It will likely come in single- or dual-motor configurations and all-wheel-drive.

The accident between two Porsches is another example of the importance of keeping control of your car. Ending up with a crossover on your windshield shouldn’t happen, but we’re glad the driver was able to get away with it. The owner of the house is probably very unhappy too, and the matter could have been much worse.
