We know that Porsche has been making efforts to increase the production of the Taycan do to the huge amount of consumer interest. But it seems that if you haven't already placed a pre order, you may be waiting for longer than expected. Porsche USA's top boss has said that if all current pre orders are turned into sales, the car is already sold out for year one.https://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/2018/12/porsche-claims-the-taycan-is-already-taken/

Had a feeling that this was going to be the case. I would imagine there are tons of consumers who have been waiting on a proper Tesla-beating alternative and Porsche seems to have developed one.

This leaves opportunity for rivals products like the e-Tron GT from Audi to capitalize on this demand. I'm sure there will be many that will be content with waiting on a pre order as they will also benefit from seeing what sort of issues arise out of the new platform.

Taycan is the first EV to come from Porsche and getting production right in proportion to demand will only help them with future launches.

If Tesla buyers were content waiting upwards of 2 and a half years before taking delivery, I don't see why loyalists wouldn't do the same here. At least you wont have to worry about build quality and fit and finish issues.

Tesla just had the advantage of being the first premium EV maker. This time around it won't be as favorable to Porsche.

All of these new upcoming premium electrics are going to run into similar supply issues for launch. At least this proves investments into electric platforms have been a worthwhile endeavor.

In the process will be a lot of delays that might help in putting people off. Other factors might help like moving to dense areas that might eliminate the need

Limited production runs of first gen models will also help to protect the grid. Who knows what sort of implications may arise from a large scale transition to EV's.
