Baden-Württemberg's new Prime Minister Winfried Kretschmann visited Porsche on Monday. Although there was no friendship, the works council boss Hück said that they had become closer.

The feud between Baden-Württemberg's green Prime Minister Winfried Kretschmann and the sports car manufacturer Porsche seems to be over. "Keep going in the green direction, then we'll get together well," said Kretschmann on Monday during his inaugural visit to the main Porsche factory in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen. There he found out about the company's progress in the field of electric mobility. Porsche boss Matthias Müller chauffeured Kretschmann across the factory premises in the Boxster E prototype - unusually noiseless. But he had inquired, said Kretschmann: "The sound can be made by the computer."

Good framework conditions desired

Kretschmann had to take a lot of criticism with his plea for fewer and smaller cars. In Zuffenhausen they immediately accused him of being hostile to Porsche and of destroying his job. On Monday, Porsche boss Müller wanted the Greens to have «framework conditions that stimulate us more than strangle us». Kretschmann spoke of "very open and constructive" discussions. Works council chief Uwe Hück summed up the meeting as follows: "We haven't become friends, but we have become good partners."

However, distance remains: he simply does not have the "libidinal relationship to these cars like those who like to drive them," Kretschmann admitted. Regardless, he was impressed by the company's performance. He trusts Porsche to be a kind of technology leader in the development of green product lines - also because customers don't have to look at every euro. (dpa)
