Porsche made an announcement on Wednesday, stating:
"The company increases production in Zuffenhausen for the first purely electrically powered sports car. This is Porsche's response to the great worldwide demand for the electric sports car, which celebrated its world premiere at the beginning of September."
Porsche says that more than 20,000 prospective buyers have made deposits, but a Porsche executive also put that number at 30,000.
"Taycan's original production capacity was 20,000 units. This continues to be the requirement for the first year of production. By increasing its workforce by the end of the second quarter of 2020, Porsche is providing itself with the necessary flexibility to be able to produce more units if necessary," the company said.
It's also adding another 500 jobs at its factory and headquarters in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen for the Taycan. This brings the total Taycan workforce to 2,000.
