It makes me feel really good about the structural safety of the car to read that the occupants walked after such a dramatic accident.Report here says it hit a tree after departing from controlled flight
There were only nine of them... A test drive event involving ten high-quality Taycan e-Porsche vehicles ended near Kirchheim with a total loss for one of them - but fortunately only minor injuries.
At a service station on this sunny day, many interested people took advantage of the offer to drive an E-Porsche demonstration car. Ten vehicles, each worth over 100,000 euros, were ready and waiting, but the exit of one of them ended in a serious crash. On a winding road, the driver reportedly swerved to avoid a motorcyclist, the car went off the road and crashed down a slope into a tree. Despite the severe damage to the vehicle, the occupants, slightly injured, were able to get out of the car themselves. The fire department had been alerted to ensure fire protection. Technicians from the demonstration site rushed in to ensure that the energy supply system had been switched off as a result of the accident. It was only afterwards that the destroyed Porsche could be recovered safely. The police are now investigating the exact cause of the accident. The test drive was initially stopped after the accident.
Total supposition but looks like it maybe hit the tree directly above the B pillar straight across the roof? Pretty amazing the occupants walked away.
Noticed this as well, but I think the pictures of the car in the trees mostly show the drivers side -- which is mostly intact. The passenger side is the side that went into the tree, and that's the side you see on the bed.Very strange, the car resting in the trees does not seem any where near as roof crushed as the car on the flat bed. Wonder if they dragged it upside down up the hill. Anyone else notice this?
