Porsche started expansion of its Leipzig production firm in preparation for production of the Evoque-rivalling Cajun.
In this program Porsche will spend 500 million euro to update the acotry so it can handle production of the new car, along with the Cayenne and Panamera. They will be making more than 1,000 new jobs and a new 17 hectare site along the way.
Porsche Cajun will get into the production by the end of 2013.
The Leipzig Porsche plant is also setting environmental standards, being one of the world’s most efficient car factories. For example, the very efficient air recirculation and power cut-off technologies in the paint shop ensure particularly economical energy use. “Sustainability of the very highest order is enshrined in our environmental principles. Our use of ultra-modern equipment and facilities is a valuable contribution to frugal automotive engineering,” said Wolfgang Leimgruber.
