The Porsche Taycan Turbo S is a seriously quick car. In fact, it’s faster than a Tesla Model S over a quarter-mile. But this is with a very good driver behind the wheel. When you’ve got a driver behind the wheel with what seems to be a little more money than sense, you get what happened here.
Taycan Crashes Through Dealer Window
While it does look like it’s staged by the YouTuber Mikhail Litvin, a popular Russian vlogger with over 6 million subscribers, it’s just as shocking to see the car cause so much destruction and seriously wounding itself from the impact. It’s never nice to see such a beautiful and expensive car ($212,000) be damaged for YouTube views.
How Did It Happen?
The video begins with actors playing a number of famous Russians… it’s a bit strange. Joseph Stalin, Vladimir Lenin, and Vladimir Putin, they’re all there and willing to give advice to the vlogger. Mikhail then goes into the Porsche dealership, sits in the Taycan, and launches it through the glass windows in front of it.
With the video already racking up almost 4 million views, this publicity stunt is working well for the Russian, who has done similar things like this when he videoed himself setting his Mercedes AMG GT 63 S on fire. That video collected over 20 million views.
How do you feel about this type of video? We flinched when we saw the damage that had been done to the Taycan, but I suppose publicity counts these days. What say you?
