Randy from The Savage Garage YouTube channel has raised a warning about the all-new Porsche Taycan Turbo S after getting a ride in the all-electric car.

Following the impressive creations from Tesla and the need to find a non-fossil fuel future for vehicles, car companies across the globe have been diving into hybrid and all-electric builds for their new releases.

The newest to join the electric revolution has been Porsche, unveiling their Taycan as the latest luxury vehicle to become all-electric. Though, with this being Porsche, the German manufacturers have come up with a more sporty model – the Turbo S – and while impressive, some YouTubers have reservations.

The Porsche Taycan is the companies first all-electric vehicle.

One in particular is Randy from the popular The Savage Garage collective, who got to go on a ride-along with a Porsche service manager.

Even though he and his partner Jimbo were blown away by how quick the car is, noting that it’s faster than a Porsche 919 – the impressive specs it has, and how awesome the charging port spot is compared to other electric cars – the YouTuber still had some concerns about it being potentially dangerous.

“It’s fun to a degree, you know, it feels dangerous but there’s something… the disconnect,” he said. “You feel like you’re in that rollercoaster – if anyone ever been on the Aerosmith rollercoaster – it’s one of the fastest accelerating rollercoasters, from there to there to 87mph in like four feet and its such a pull and such an adrenaline rush, that’s what it feels like.”

On the other hand, Jimbo explained that he feels it shouldn’t be available to the public because it could cause plenty of crashes. “I think it should be, because it’s going to be funny to YouTube,” added Randy.

Even though the car is available to members of the public, it’s not exactly cheap. Getting a Taycan Turbo S will set you back around $206,000.

Kylie Jenner is one of the most successful young entrepreneurs the world has ever seen, and her car collection proves it. With everything from luxury SUVs to top-range hypercars, she has all bases covered in her car collection.

Kylie Jenner is a social media sensation, serial entrepreneur, and bonafide car collector. Considering her age, she has an incredibly diverse taste in cars with both ‘typical rich kid’ cars and some very left-field choices.

As with everything in her life, she regularly posts her car collection to her Instagram, showing off her rides to over 198 million followers. Below, we’ve highlighted some of the best cars from Kylie Jenner’s car collection for your enjoyment.

Kylie Jenner’s luxury car collection

As any self-respecting entrepreneur will tell you, appearance is everything. Well, Kylie certainly has that one covered, with a whole host of luxury cars at her disposal.

Jenner has no less than three different variations of Mercedes G-Wagons. These luxury 4x4s are a great way to make a statement wherever she goes. Her collection ranges from a bright orange AMG G63, to a standard Tan-colored G-Wagon that regularly makes appearances on her Instagram feed.

Rolls-Royces also play a big part in her car collection. She has been seen with no less than four different Rolls-Royce Ghosts, though it is unclear how many of these are simply the same car that has been repainted.

Perhaps most notable from her luxury car collection is her classic Rolls-Royce. Gifted to her by ex-boyfriend Travis Scott, the classic Rolls is one of the most unique and stunning cars in her collection. For day-to-day duties, Kylie also has two Range Rovers. Perfect for driving around without drawing attention to herself, they are also the cheapest cars in her garage.

Kylie Jenner’s supercars

Not only does Kylie have a number of opulent luxury cars, but she also appears to be a fan of the faster things in life. Her supercar collection is enough to make any petrolhead jealous, with a few notable highlights.

Kylie has a number of different Ferraris, including a Ferrari 488 Spyder which she bought to match with her sister Kendall back in 2018. Not only does she have the 488, but also a 458 Italia spyder in a custom blue finish.

Lamborghinis are also a common theme in her collection. Jenner owns both a bright orange Lamborghini Aventador (which matches her AMG G63 truck) and a red Lamborghini Urus. The Urus is a recent addition to her collection, and is ideal for traveling in style with daughter Stormi.

The stars of her collection are undoubtedly Kylie’s hypercars. Back when she was dating Travis Scott, the rapper gifted Kylie a black Ferrari LaFerrari after giving birth to their daughter. Worth a cool $1.4m, the LaFerrari isn’t even the most expensive car in her collection.

The jewel in Jenner’s collection is her Bugatti Chiron. Bought as a dramatic ‘breakup present’ to herself after splitting with Scott in 2019, the $3m 1000hp+ hypercar is a stunning (and expensive) way to get over a heartbreak. All told, Kylie’s collection is worth in excess of $5.5 million.
