Porsche takes 30,000 deposits in Europe for Taycan, report says
December 11, 2019

FRANKFURT -- Porsche has taken down payments from 30,000 customers in Europe for its Taycan, the automaker's first full-electric model, Germany's Handelsblatt reported.

These customers have made down payments of 2,500 euros ($2,771) each and 10,000 of them have already placed a firm order to buy a Taycan, CEO Oliver Blume told the business paper. This exceeded the company's expectations, Blume said.

Porsche plans to deliver 20,000 Taycans next year. The company is starting shipments of the Taycan to U.S. dealerships this month and to European markets in early 2020.

The automaker is under pressure from Tesla, which last month announced that it will build its first European factory and design center near Berlin. The purchase contract for the site is currently being negotiated and construction of the factory will start next year, Germany's Bild newspaper reported on Wednesday.

Here's a related article that also talks about the slower than expected ramp up to production.

Seems like they doing like Tesla. Produce cars for over seas first, then their own continent, and all the cars delivers to the customers in the same month. This may be only for the first batch. My dealer said to me that they stack up cars for delivery at almost the same time. He said it some weeks ago, but I didn't put much into it then. I thought it was for Norway only.

No, they need to deliver a few cars to dealers in the US before new year in order to satisfy the ruling over the diesel scandal. I think they produce pretty even for the main three markets.
