Porsche in trouble – cuts down on the number of electric cars

Porsche is in trouble. There are not as many drivers who want to drive an electric car as the car brand had expected.

Porsche is in trouble. The order book is not as jam-packed as the brand had expected when it comes to electric cars.

Therefore, the German brand from Zuffenhausen is now cutting back on production. It is the Taycan model in particular that will become fewer.

This is written by Stuttgarter Nachrichten .

According to the newspaper, the factory will soon cut the number of shift shifts down to one at the factory, simply because there are fewer orders to handle. The factory is currently in negotiations with the local trade union, which organizes the factory workers.

And there are no reports of layoffs for now. But the fact that the Porsche Taycan is bad business – at least for the owners – is no secret.

Not even a month passed, because the newest bottling of the model lost up to a quarter of a million kroner in value. It has subsequently emerged that some importers directly pay customers to buy a Taycan. Read more about both parts here .

Sales of electric cars in Germany have now fallen for six consecutive months. It all happened after the country's government withdrew all public support for electric cars without warning and with immediate effect. All to close a gaping hole in the treasury.

However, the decline in interest in Porsche electric cars cannot be solely attributed to the German state's now non-existent support for the electric car. It is not just in Germany that sales are falling.

And then in China, where sales are decisive for Porsche, the brand's customers are increasingly turning to models with combustion engines, writes the German newspaper.
