Efficient organisation along the value chain is a key success factor for
Until 1992, new products were developed through project work. As part of the
One particularly innovative feature of the new development was that it put responsibility for the entire life cycle of a vehicle onto the product line. The product line not only handles new model development, but also develops variants, and deals with production support and model updates. Ultimately the customer benefits from the flawless project management. And it will play a central role in guiding our thoughts and actions in the future also. The goal of all those involved is clearly defined: to build the best sports cars in the world. Product line organisation is the seed that will form the basis for high-quality
The product line makes and coordinates the decisions for all product-related topics across a model’s entire life cycle, independent of departmental interests. “We report directly to the CEO. That means we are able to achieve the optimum result for the product and the company,” says Hans-Jürgen Wöhler, “while at the same time taking technology, deadlines and budgets into account.” August Achleitner, recently retired long-standing Vice President of the

*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. For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
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.
