Porsche had problems.
The company temporarily does not sell new cars in Europe. Cars did not have time to adapt to the new emission standards.
Car sales have been suspended “until further notice”.
The reason for this decision was the transition to new measurement cycles exhaust WLTP and RDE, which entail stricter requirements during testing on the bench or in the real daily work. The new rules are introduced gradually from September this year. As a rule, petrol engines can implement these restrictions only if they are equipped with a particulate filter.
According to the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Porsche has underestimated the technical measures necessary for compliance and did not have time to adapt their machines to the new requirements.
In particular, on the German Porsche website is not working Configurator new cars. When trying to use ask users to wait for the necessary changes. In addition, customers are welcome to purchase the already released models of the German brand.
Also on the official website say to client that he needs to wait for the models Cayenne and Panamera with customization, at least until March 2019, if he’s going to need a new car. The 911 in the message is not mentioned.
It is noted that the restrictions are temporary and soon the problem needs to be solved. As noted by the representative of the company “in the first place, every effort will be made to process all remaining orders”.
