Looks like the 20,000 then 30,000 reservation numbers announced earlier have turned into 15,000 orders so far.

Well, the Taycan was only introduced in the end of 2019.

I'm sure they can meet the 15000 orders

I think so too @TheSnape, they have a good amount of automation.

Does anyone remember how many they intended to produce per year once the production line was operating at full speed?

Cheers Dee, so I'm deducing, very roughly, allocations until the end of this year are spoken for
Including the virus for sure!

I guess half the 30,000 deposits havent converted their deposits to orders yet, including me.

I think lots of people waivering between ordering and not ordering are going to put their decision on hold because of economic recession caused by the corona virus. I am a commercial Landlord with 620, yes 620 commercial tenants. NOONE is coming to work (not saying they should), but the result will be that many will NOT be able to pay their rent next month, or use it as an excuse not to pay rent.

I was holding my order till I see all Taycan colors in person and test drive a 4S, but quite frankly, I am now ALSO putting it on hold till I know the full impact of the huge economic downturn will effect my business.

On off topic, but on topic to the insideevs article posted, it is interesting to see Audi sold 45,000 E-Trons

Anybody got a read on how many people have declined to purchase the car? I know in my dealership, they have told me that many folks have decided not to go forward.

I remember telling my sales guy that he was about to have his best financial year ever. I said that in January when I completed my build with him. Last I heard, he wasn't even working.

fwiw, I haven’t been offered an allocation yet so my reservation is basically uncounted. It’s not an order yet. Afaik build allocations for the turbo S are incredibly rare. Most of these are the launch config / dealer demo models. Or my dealer just doesn’t like me very much. I’m fairly unlikeable.

I think I am in the same category. No word on my Turbo S allocation. Placed my order in September. No word from my sales associate since the February launch event.
