neers in research and development is very high - even in these economi-
cally trying times. “Scientists and engineers have always been in high demand in the labor market - regardless of whether the economy is in a boom or bust cycle.” The
ledge, and professional qualifications are the most effective means of surviving a crisis, ensuring a secure future and yielding the best returns on your investment,” said Wiedeking.
The Baden-Württemberg Minister of Culture Helmut Rau underscored the importance of natural sciences and technology for the competitiveness of German companies. “The current economic situation requires us to focus on past strengths and to do everything to achieve an excellent position precisely in these fields in Baden-Württemberg, Germany, and Europe.” The support of the so-called MINT disciplines, which stands for Mathematics, Information Sciences, Natural Sciences, and Technology, is an essential requirement for increasing student numbers in the natural sciences and engineering disciplines.

*Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. Fuel economy and CO₂ emission figures are only intended as a means of comparing different types of vehicles tested under the same test cycle. New WLTP homologated vehicles are therefore not directly comparable with any vehicles tested under NEDC.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel consumption and CO₂ values. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, electricity consumption, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
