The latest is out on initial Taycan orders and so far it hit an impressive 32,000. Porsche initially planned for 20,000!
Andreas Haffner, Porsche’s head of Human Resources and Social Affairs, said this week there are now over 32,000 applications for the Taycan, and even if probably not all of them will turn into orders, this is a clear sign of how “great the interest is in shaping the future of the sports car.”
With that in mind, and given the fact the planned 1,500 new positions for Taycan production will be completed in the coming days, Porsche says an additional 500 people are to be hired next year at the Zuffenhausen facility.
“With the Taycan, we are showing that e-mobility is by no means a job killer. Rather, we are underlining its future viability, especially in the sports car segment,” said the German executive in a statement.
