What Would You Save From This Crashed Porsche Taycan Turbo S?

The Taycan is the car that gave Porsche a significant advantage over its rivals. It is a battery-electric vehicle that takes a swing at the Tesla Model S and was previewed all the way back in 2015 by the Mission E Concept that debuted at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Production kicked off four years later at the Stuttgart facility in Germany, and it is currently offered in three body styles. The family comprises the normal Taycan, aka the sedan, the Sport Turismo, which is a family-friendly wagon, and the Cross Turismo, a jacked-up variant of the latter.

The most affordable version kicks off at nearly $91,000 in our market before destination. On overboost with launch control, the 402 horsepower available allows it to hit 60 mph (97 kph) in just 5.1 seconds. At the upper end of the lineup is the Turbo S, priced from $194,900 in the four-door body style. This is a supercar disguised as a battery-electric sedan, with up to 750 hp on tap and 2.6 seconds required to sprint to sixty. The neck-snapping performance makes it almost hypercar-fast. In the Cross Turismo configuration, the Taycan Turbo S is one-tenth slower and starts at $197,500.

If you have a soft spot for the Porsche Taycan, then there are tons of them listed for grabs, some with a few miles under their belts and in top-notch condition. There are also others that have seen better days, like the one pictured in the gallery above. This one came via a cycle parts on Instagram and will be stripped for parts – if it wasn’t already. The company will sell every component it can save for profit, and by the looks of it, there are many things that will bring in some Benjamins.

Most body panels were significantly beaten up in the accident that we know nothing of. The face is barely recognizable, though, at the other end, it still looks good. They haven't provided a glimpse inside, yet save for the airbags, or some of them anyway, it is likely that they will make a buck off nearly all components. The brakes, suspension, extremely powerful electric motors, and battery pack are other things that should sell in no time.

A quick online search reveals that a carbon ceramic rotor costs around $2,500, whereas a brake caliper tends to change hands for roughly $1,700. The leather-wrapped steering wheel should bring in over $1,000, whereas stuff like the rearview mirror, floor mats, overhead console, and other trim will make them more money. Even the key fob is worth some $150. But if you were in the market for spare parts to use on that project car of yours, what would you save from this 2020 Porsche Taycan Turbo S?
