Porsche releases Q1 2020 sales figures, including new Taycan

Porsche Taycan 4S

Porsche released the all-new electric Taycan late last year. Early reports indicated a slow start to sales, with Porsche reportedly receiving 30,000 deposits, but delivering only 130.

Then Porsche ran into production issues, which caused an 8-10 week delay for new Taycan owners.
