Porsche can no longer take orders due to WLTP

The new type approval procedure for new cars is causing serious production issues at car makers. Porsche has announced it can no longer accept orders as it needs to adapt all of its models so that they comply with WLTP, RDE and the associated Euro 6d-Temp standard. 

To counter the temporary production stop, Porsche allegedly increased its output in the past months to create sufficient stock. However, customers requiring a high degree of customisation will have to sit and wait until Porsche reopens its order books.
