Porsche has seen an unprecedented amount of interest in the upcoming Taycan and will be doubling their original target number. They reported a few months back that around 20,000 units of the performance EV would be made for launch, but now that figure could climb to 40,000.

Reservations have already been made in the thousands and this decision to increase volume reinforces their dedication to electric mobility. This new quota would make the Taycan one of the largest vehicle programs in their lineup, following closely behind that of the Cayenne and Macan.

The new Zuffenhausen production facility that Porsche has spent the past 3 years developing for the Taycan, will now be run at maximum capacity. At this rate, the Taycan could become more successful in its first year, than even the current acclaimed 911.

I believe that last year Porsche sold around 36k units of the 911, so the progress they are making with their first EV is certainly impressive. If they can translate those figures into every new EV variant, I would imagine its only a matter of time before they become a dedicated EV brand.

With nearly hundreds of billions already scheduled to be invested into the EV market from automobiles to programs and of course infrastructure, I think Porsche made the right move.

Porsche purists wont be happy to hear that but it makes sense if that's where the interest lies. Its a smart move for the new 992 architecture to be built with electrification in mind. Forward thinking will alleviate R&D times.

Porsche doesn't have a choice. Otherwise some other automaker would easily come along and fill in the void. Trillions are being invested into EV's collectively.

I think Porsche has already said that electrification of the 911 wont happen for at least 4 years. I have heard a rumored horsepower of around 700 with the hybrid powerplant. There is definitely an upside to it.
