Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo Falls Victim to Bizarre Headlight Heist in Germany

Car theft is a common occurrence, with thieves targeting various components, but a recent incident in Düsseldorf, Germany, took an unusual turn as the headlights of a Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo were stolen. The crime, shared on Reddit by user No_Supermarket9751, involved the perpetrators using tin snips to cut into the fenders to access and disconnect the high-value headlights.

The incident, which occurred on a Monday night, left the Taycan with significant body damage, resembling the aftermath of a battle with a can opener. The affected car owner promptly reported the crime to the police, and an investigation is underway.

The cost of repairing the stolen headlights and the damaged fenders is expected to be substantial. Depending on the factory-equipped lighting options, headlight assemblies for the Taycan can range from $2,829.43 to $3,602.11, with control modules priced between $373.49 and $889.32. Additionally, each light requires a $325.39 motor. The fenders, priced at $652.96 each, also need painting and installation. The cumulative expenses make this an expensive repair for the owner.

Interestingly, this is not the first time Porsche Taycan headlights have been targeted by thieves. Reports from 2021 and 2020 highlight similar incidents where criminals stole headlights from parked Taycans. The recurrence of such crimes serves as a cautionary reminder for Taycan owners to remain vigilant, especially when parking on the street.
