I think there’s a problem with the translation from German to Norwegian to English.Just got an email from Porsche Norway that the production of Taycan is delayed by 8 - 10 Weeks due complexity in the production.
Here is the full Google translate from Norwegian to English:I think there’s a problem with the translation from German to Norwegian to English.
here’s how it should have read: ”...production of Taycan is delayed by 8 - 10 Weeks due to bad planning.”
Overheard at the factory, “Which end of these is +? The end with the bump or the flat end?”
Between the lines you've right it's bad planningDelays in production
Taycan is our first fully electric sports car. The car is developed from scratch and manufactured in a brand new factory. All Porsche employees have worked with full pressure to start delivering Taycan as scheduled in January. Still, as a result of the enormous complexity surrounding the production of Taycan, we must report that unfortunately the delivery dates are somewhat delayed.
We currently expect delays of around eight to ten weeks, and a new production time for your car will be communicated through your seller as soon as this is ready. We strongly apologize and guarantee that we will do everything we can to deliver your Porsche Taycan as soon as possible.
There really isn't Porsche stock. VW makes a lot of cars, so the perception of issues with the Taycan on Porsche/VW stock is quite minimal. They won't be making very much money on this car, but they make money on others.Its interesting…….. I wonder if the Porsche stock will fall as much as TESLA stock does when they report a delay or a production "constraint" of some sort...…….
Funny how it is Porsche which is having issues here and it somehow STILL comes back to bashing Telsla....Tesla, on the other hand, has to try to prove that it can someday make money on their few cars.
