Porsche Boxster Production 1 at Porsche Boxster Production Begins at Osnabruck Plant

The new generation Porsche Boxster is important enough that Volkswagen’s top brass Prof. Dr. Martin Winterkorn attended the ceremony that celebrated the car’s production at VW’s plant in Osnabruck, Germany. Porsche, as you know is now fully owned by VW. Winterkorn was joined by David McAllister, Minister-President of Lower Saxony, and Matthias Müller, Chairman of the Board of Management of Porsche AG.

Osnabruck plant will relieve some of the pressure at Porsche’s Zuffenhausen plant in Stuttgart, which is quite busy these days thanks to Porsche’s constantly growing range. The plant was chosen mainly because of the expertise of its workforce. It is one of the few production plants that can provide Porsche with the high level of quality they demand.

The plant has a long history in making Porsches, and also convertible cars. Their portfolio includes the 914 (from 1969 to 1976) and the 968 (from 1991 to 1994). Since March 2011, Volkswagen has also produced the new Golf Cabriolet in Osnabrück.

At the production line ceremony, Prof. Winterkorn said: ‘The production of the Porsche Boxster in Osnabrück is a clear sign that Volkswagen and Porsche are growing together fast. Production in Osnabrück creates synergy effects that will benefit customers, employees and the plant.’

‘The start of Boxster production in Osnabrück shows that the plant has established itself as a competence centre for convertible and small series production within the Volkswagen Group. I am very pleased that Porsches representing premium quality made in Germany are now rolling off the production line here in Lower Saxony,’ Minister-President McAllister underlined.
