If you have a new Porsche Taycan EV on order, expect to receive notification soon from Porsche that your delivery is going to be delayed by up to 10 weeks.
Porsche has already begun emailing customers, according to a report from tek.no. In the message, Porsche claims that “enormous complexity surrounding the production” of their EV has delayed production and as a result, deliveries, into the new year.
“The timing of production of 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.”
It’s interesting to note that a legacy automaker such as Porsche is already facing difficulties in the production of their EV, when critics of Tesla continuously claim that manufacturing electric vehicles is easier than internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles. More credit should be given to Tesla as they’ve been able to build up an EV production chain from scratch churning out 300,000+ vehicles in less than 10 years.
The Porsche Taycan starts at $119,400 for the lower 4S trim option, all the way up to $213,900 for the top of the line Turbo S variant.
