He may have gotten over his COVID-19 infection but it’s still the year 2020 and even The Rock a.k.a Dwayne Johnson is no exception from continuous calamity.
After months of planning and preparing, not to mention buying the Porsche Taycan, it was the moment of truth on the film set of Red Notice, an upcoming Netflix film. The Rock was meant to climb behind the wheel of Porsche’s all-electric car to rehearse a chase scene.
It didn’t turn out quite as planned; the former WWE wrestler was simply too big. As The Rock described on his Instagram post, his back was simply too wide to get into the Taycan’s hugging seats.
“Like a big ass brown marshmellow getting shoved into a coin slot,” was how The Rock described the experience.
After about 15 seconds of uncomfortable silence on the set, the actor, director, and the entire production crew just started laughing hysterically.
“Fxxk it, welcome to 2020,” The Rock said – echoing the sentiments everyone on Planet Earth. In the end, they devised a creative way and successfully shot the scene they had initially planned.
Porsche’s electric sedan was recently launched in Malaysia, with three variants available. Prices start from RM725k for the Taycan 4S, RM 999k for the Taycan Turbo and RM1.195 million for the Taycan Turbo S.
The Taycan Turbo S makes 625 hp and 1050 Nm while the Turbo makes 680 hp and 850 Nm. The Taycan S meanwhile produces 530 hp and 640 Nm. As for pure electric driving range, the Taycan serves up to 463 km depending on which variant you go for.
