It’s the 26th February and Florian Böhme is on his way to the historic Werk 1 plant in Zuffenhausen. It’s a very special day for him: not only is it the Porsche fan’s 43rd birthday, but he is also collecting a Taycan 4S in Carmine Red. This makes Böhme the very first customer to grab the keys to a Taycan from the parent factory.
“The colour looks even better than in the pictures,” he grins, standing in front of the fully electric Porsche in the delivery hall. Ottomar Domnick must have had a similar experience. The doctor and arts patron picked up his 356 in Zuffenhausen almost seventy years ago, on 26th May 1950. Domnick was the first person in Porsche history to collect a new car from the factory. Since 2002, Porsche Leipzig has also offered collection from the plant. Approximately 3,000 cars are handed over there annually.
