i bet any money car was in hold position due to the steep incline, driver wanted to creep it further up hill but smashed the gas too hard to get it out of hold. Car is really difficult to creep when its in hold mode as I have this happen to me daily as i park in a tight drive way and need to get very close to the car in front of me.

But that wouldn't explain why they were turning right? If they wanted to go forward they would've straightened up. I still think they were unfamiliar with how to engage reverse. When I rented a car in Europe I felt so superior to all the Americans who couldn't drive stick... then spent 15 minutes trying to figure out how to disengage the reverse lockout on that model... while in the middle of the street after trying to do a K-turn.

Unless it was his drive on the right and wanted to reverse a bit before entering? Then had problems knowing which pedal to press. . .

The damage to the A-pillar I'd say will write off that BMW. The Porsche prob come out of it okay.

The underside of the Taycan really is very flat.

So ... here's the scoop from someone who says they are from the area.
Driver took delivery of car 2 hrs prior to this episode.
Was at friends house to show it to them.
Had the car in brake 'hold'.
Reached to back seat to grab an item and hit the accelerator by accident while twisting around to turn back.
Being new to the car's power, did not react in time.

That does make sense.

Are we calling a write off for the Taycan?

I suspect the insurance co will being unfamiliar with the model history, someone will pick up a bargain I suspect. Hope he/she has GAP insurance!!
My understanding is most insurance companies will pay the retail price of the car in the first year anyway. Something we should be told when buying gap insurance! (Check to make sure that is right with your insurance before you trust what i say - it might be different with different companies)
This will probably be under the drive away insurance that you get for 5 days or something (from what i have heard).
