News Porsche Taycan Production Will Double Before Launch

Porsche Taycan Production Will Double Before Launch

This news lends credo to that fact that Porsche can slap their logo on just about anything and people will buy it.

It so happens that the product is always better than hoped and in this case, sleek, fast and fully electric like, for example, the upcoming Porsche Taycan.

The all-electric Porsche Taycan has been making noise for some time and roughly nine months ahead of its arrival, Porsche is already announcing that it will boost production numbers from 20,000 to 40,000 units – that’s right, they will double the initial offering.

Porsche says that demand for the Taycan is stronger than expected yet they’d already prepared to increase capacity from the onset. In other words, they’re being humble. This is a clear sign that the world is hungry for a Tesla alternative.

Audi will shortly thereafter release their e-tron GT car they revealed at last year’s LAAS. Both the Audi and the Porsche are built on the VW Group’s MEB platform. We suspect demand for both the Audi e-tron SUV and GT will be equally strong.
