Florida Man’s Or Woman’s Porsche Taycan Catches On Fire In Garage

This is the first known report of an all-new Porche Taycan catching fire for reasons so far unknown.

  • A video shows what’s left of the expensive and fast Porsche Taycan.
  • No details are available on the incident.
  • Porsche is investigating.

Electric cars catching on fire is not exactly news although Teslas bursting into flames usually make headlines. The reason for this story is that it’s the first known Porsche Taycan to pull a meltdown, and in someone’s garage.

There’s a very brief and information-free video of the aftermaths of the fire where, if we’d not been told this was a Taycan, we’d have needed a few moments to guess based on what’s left.

Calvin Kim, a Porsche spokesman, said that the company was made aware of the incident on February 16th which involved a Taycan parked overnight at a residential address.

Kim added: “We are investigating, and we remain ready to assist if called upon. We are relieved to hear that no one was harmed in this incident and that it’s too early to speculate on the cause until the investigation has concluded.”

The Porsche Taycan was one of the most talked and written about cars in 2019 and will surely be again in 2020. So far, the big news has been that the car’s range is greater than the EPA’s published numbers and that it’s even faster than initially thought.
