YouTuber Tanner Fox was absolutely floored after test driving the Porsche Taycan Turbo S, calling the electric vehicle a “rollercoaster” of a machine.

Electric cars aren’t only getting more practical, they’re becoming impressive feats of engineering that are starting to pique the interests of petrolheads across the world. It’s cars like the $250,000 Taycan that are turning heads from speed demons to people looking for new kinds of thrills.

As someone in the market to grow his collection of cars, Fox stepped into the Porsche that’s been making headlines after Bill Gates purchased the same car, and noted the problems that EV machines are still facing.

The electric Porsche Taycan Turbo S puts a ton of power off the jump.

But the focus of Fox’s breakdown was much more centered around the 0-60 workhorse’s ability to get off the tarmac at blazing speeds. In a warehouse filled with some of the most exotic cars in the world, the Turbo S stood out to catch the YouTuber’s eye.

Immediately after getting out of the warehouse, the former pro scooter rider and his team were literally taken back by the Porsche’s power.

“I felt the G-force on my face, bro!” Fox said. The takeoff of the care instantly made an impression on his face as his “cheeks were rippling” after launching down the road.

That’s because the top-of-the-line model comes equipped with an overboost feature that’s activated with the Turbo S launch control. This lets the car unleash 750 horsepower that thrusts it from 0-60 in just 2.6 seconds.

But it’s the car’s acceleration that makes it top out at 161 miles per hour with ease, something that wasn’t lost on Fox.

“This car is a rollercoaster,” Fox said. “It’s not like a rollercoaster, it IS a rollercoaster.”

As impressed as he was with Porsche’s take on a turbo-electric vehicle, he was equally floored when seeing the price tag on the behemoth.

While the car packs a punch where it counts, at the end of the day, Fox probably won’t be adding the car to his personal garage.

Even though he didn’t pick up the Porsche, it’s safe to say that the vehicle made a huge impression on Tanner immediately following his test drive of the Taycan Turbo S.

Musicians have one of the most intensive lifestyles in the world, touring the globe to promote their work to millions of people. Thankfully, hard work brings rewards, which rappers often spend on incredible car collections.

Luxury items such as exotic cars are seen as a status symbol. They’re a fantastic way to not only ‘flex’ wealth, but also make a statement wherever they go.

Successful rappers such as Drake and Travis Scott love nothing more than showing off their success with ultra-expensive cars, but they’re far from the only ones. Below, we’ve rounded up five of the most expensive cars ever to be owned by rap artists for your enjoyment.

4. Travis Scott’s Maybach G650 Landaulet – $1 million

Travis Scott has one of the most incredible car collections of any rapper. Featuring Ferraris, Lamborghinis, and Bugattis, one of the rarest (and most expensive) cars is his Maybach G650 Landaulet.

With only 99 built, the G650 Landaulet is based upon the Mercedes G Wagon. Featuring a custom extended body with convertible rear section, the G650 puts out over 600hp from its V12 engine.

3. Post Malone’s McLaren Senna XP – $1.7 million

Post Malone is known for his keen love of custom and exotic cars. With his fleet ranging from a custom 1992 Ford Explorer (which he named a song after) to Rolls-Royces, the jewel in this rapper’s collection is undoubtedly his McLaren Senna.

His Senna is no ordinary hypercar, however, with Post having one of the ultra-rare prototypes from McLaren themselves. Dubbed the Senna XP, Master of Monaco, this one-off prototype is worth significantly more than a standard McLaren Senna.

Kanye West McLaren SLR Stirling Moss

Kanye’s McLaren SLR Stirling Moss is one of only 75 in the world.

Kanye’s collection is an eclectic one, but the standout car has to be his McLaren SLR Stirling Moss. Based on the already legendary McLaren SLR, the ‘Stirling Moss’ edition pays tribute to the legendary racing driver of the same name.

Featuring an open two-seat cockpit, 641bhp, and a top speed of 220 mph, the SLR Stirling Moss is a serious performance car. It’s collectible, too, and could turn out to be a very good investment for Kanye in the long run.
