Those numbers have been more or less unchanged for the last 5 years but it is the demographics of Porsche Taycan buyers that are surprising even Porsche China themselves.

As you already know, the all-electric Porsche Taycan is unlike any other Porsche, and because of that, the Taycan is also attracting a totally different group of even younger customers.

The average age of a Porsche Taycan buyer in China is only 30, said Jens Puttfarcken, the outgoing CEO of Porsche China, Hongkong and Macau, during a media interview with the Chinese press.

Also, Puttfarcken said two-thirds of Chinese Taycan buyers have never driven a Porsche before, proving that the Taycan has been extremely successful in growing Porsche’s customer base.
