Michael Mauer is attracted by this noticeable, new uncertainty when looking into the future. Everything changes: "For creatives, this acceleration in transformation is an inspiring situation." The design team is trained to anticipate what is to come – to think their way into tomorrow. Mauer also thought ahead when putting the team together. "We have more generalists on board in order to think further," he says. Even in 2048, when the

Interior design encompasses not only how displays are conceived structurally, but also what can be seen on them. Gantimur Meißner's business card says "Head of UX/UI Design" – not a particularly self-explanatory term. UX, an abbreviation borrowed from web design, stands for ‘user experience’ – in other words, what you can experience in and with a
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. From September 01, 2018 the WLTP will replace the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO2 emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from September 01, 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, irrespective of the testing method used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars, (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will therefore be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel consumption, electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
