Porsche has reopened its factories following a month-long shutdown due to COVID-19 but it still isn’t allowing customers to tour its facilities in person until the virus is under total control. However, the German carmaker has come up with a great way of making buyers feel more involved with the build process of their new Porsche with its new ‘Behind the Scenes’ function in the ‘My Porsche’ app and online portal.
