German luxury car brand Porsche's production in multiple plants has been temporarily suspended due to the Russia-Ukraine conflict. Ukraine is one of the major suppliers of wire harnesses for the automakers such as Volkswagen Group. The conflict in the region has created supply chain disruption, which prompted Porsche too halt production at some of its plants, which could eventually affect all of its models.

The semiconductor shortage has been already impacting global automotive production for more than a year. While the situation was gradually normalising, the Russia-Ukraine conflict has again created uncertainty in the segment. Russia is a key semiconductor manufacturer, while Ukraine supplies wire harnesses to many automotive companies. The crisis in the region has impacted several automakers.

While Porsche has stopped production at its multiple manufacturing facilities, virtually every major automaker is affected by the ongoing crisis in Ukraine. Volkswagen, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, Volvo, Daimler Truck, Toyota, Ford, General Motors, Honda, have either stopped production in Russia or stopped shipment of vehicles to the country in the wake of the crisis. Some automakers have taken both measures in solidarity with Ukraine. Also, the stringent economic sanction imposed on Russia by the US, UK and European Union too is impacting the automakers adversely.
