Oh, boy. The rollout of the all-new Porsche Taycan is certainly proving to be quite difficult.

Although it's been plagued by lower-than-expected range and zipping through it rather quickly, a new issue just cropped up as of Sunday. That's because one of the first delivered Taycan vehicles has allegedly caught fire in a Florida owner's garage.

The image we see shows a completely burned out vehicle. There's not much left aside from the frame and some metal components. As you'd expect, this caused significant damage to the garage and reports indicate the house as well.

As of now details remain extremely minimal. A video showing the aftermath was removed from Twitter per the owner's request and, according to Twitter user "VWCHARTS," Porsche's desire to keep the situation "hush hush."

Many fans of the all-new Taycan exclaim that the Porsche is the vehicle to have due to improved quality of Tesla's long-standing quality control issues. We're thinking that those folks will have to revisit their talking points.

Vehicle fires happen in standard, gasoline-powered autos. Additionally, Tesla fires have been extensively reported by the media.

We'll update you if we hear anything related to this specific incident.



A Porsche Taycan electric car caught on fire at a residence in Florida yesterday, leading to significant damage to the house and a complete loss of the car.

After launching the Taycan late last year, the German premium automaker started deliveries in December, with the first 130 cars in the US.

Now we learn that one of those Taycan premium sedans has caught on fire and burned down a garage in South Florida on February 16.

Not many details are known at this time, but images of the aftermath were posted on social media showing that the electric car was burned down to the some parts of the frame, and the garage sustained significant damages...

That really sucks. Glad no one was hurt considering the car exploded.

Hope it's not a serious defect since there are so few of these on the road and already this.

A new paint job and that will be good as new.

That won't buff out. God's way of balancing things out? If you have 6 or 7 figures for a car... you never know what might happen when it is parked. I'd love to see the data on the correlation between cars just catching fire on their own and their cost.

Wow ,, 1 of 130 looks bad what will be the relation of Tesla compared to... I bet is not that bad. But lets wait one year to see the final numbers.

I thought the Porsche collided with a Tesla which exploded in flames.

Porsche will probably experience the same "growing pains" Tesla did with battery fires, which they will no doubt resolve as their technology matures. It appears that Tesla has improved significantly as the vast majority of fires are in Model S/X, despite the Model 3 now making up more than half of all Teslas on the road.
