Porsche has just written not one, but two pages in its history book today. The first is the 10th anniversary of the Leipzig plant, one of the most modern assembly plants in the world. The second is the production of the 100,000th current-generation Cayenne, which is being sent to meet its new owner in Brazil.
The Cayenne comes in five variations that produce between 245 and 500 hp and consume between 7.2 and 11.5L/100 km on average. Leipzig was tasked with building the second-generation Cayenne in 2009, along with the popular Panamera. A challenge the German plant met head on.
In fact, things are going so smoothly that a third shift will be added at the end of the month to meet the growing demand, creating 1,000 extra jobs. Porsche expects to build around 500 vehicles per day in Leipzig, and the production of a new model will be launch at the end of 2013.
