Porsche Workers Are So Damn Loyal They Just Agreed To Do This

Electric Car

Loyalty pays off...hopefully.

A few weeks ago we learned Porsche approved the Mission E for production, its all-electrical sedan rival to the Tesla Model S. With a driving range of some 300 miles and a supposed output of 600 hp thanks to its four electric motors, the Mission E, at least on paper, could become the most formidable EV on the market by 2020. And the Porsche workers who’ll be building it are extremely excited to make it happen. Germans are like that sometimes. They can't help it.

In fact they’re so excited that, according to a report from Automotive News, they’ve "agreed to concessions worth several hundred million euros" in order to secure production. Basically, 13,000 workers at Porsche’s plant in Zuffenhausen agreed to concessions to get the job done. What exactly have they willingly given up? For starters, their work week will increase from 34 to (gasp!) 35 hours. Absolutely horrible, right? But then there’s this: they’ve also agreed to drop parts of a pay increase between 2016 and 2025. Essentially work more, get paid less. That’s how much they believe in the future of Porsche and the Mission E specifically.
