As a result of them being found at fault for sinking a car carrier and a big court case a recall is now in action for the brand.

Faulty batteries prompt recall on Porsche’s EV offering.

Porsche’s leading electric car offering has been hit with an urgent recall notice by the federal transport department over battery issues.

The department has issued the recall on Porsche Taycan models Y1A, Y1B and Y1C for the year range 2019-2023, citing a risk of vehicle fire.

The defect is suspected to affect 19 vehicles in Australia, with a list of vehicle identification numbers available on vehiclerecalls.gov.au.

It’s believed that a manufacturing issue among cell modules in the high voltage battery leaves the vehicle prone to short circuiting that could trigger overheating and a vehicle fire.

Owners of Porsche Taycans prone to the defect are urged to contact their preferred official Porsche centre dealer where a free repair will be arranged to prevent the fire risk.......
So much for German engineering.

German Engineering 'among cell modules in the high voltage battery'? I doubt that.

This thought can be continued: What makes a German EV technically superior to a Chinese one? Oooops, hopefully customers won't realize this at some point. Then our industry will be in trouble. Diesel... yes..., but BEV?

Elon has a problem, he's building more cars than he's selling.

‘What the hell?’: Tesla renting shopping centre, airport car parks as unsold EVs pile up.

Tesla is renting out shopping centre car parks to store unsold models as the electric carmaker faces flagging consumer demand and growing competition from cheaper Chinese competitors.

First-quarter sales figures released by Tesla last month revealed it produced 433,371 vehicles in the first three months of 2024 but delivered 386,810 — a whopping 8.5 per cent decline compared with the same period last year.

In the first three months of 2023, Tesla produced 440,808 vehicles and delivered 422,875, a difference of 17,993. In the first three months of 2024, Tesla produced 46,561 more vehicles than it delivered......
It maybe time for a fire sale.
