18th May, 2009
In Porsche's Leipzig plant, the production of the new Panamera has commenced.
Porsche's new model made its global debut in Shanghai on 19th April, 2009. The car will be launched in September, starting
with some European markets. Porsche is manufacturing the four-door Gran Turismo together with the Cayenne on one production
line. For this, the Leipzig plant has undergone a 22,000 square metre expansion over the course of two years. The
state-of-the-art production and logistics concept was also refined further during this time.
No plant tours were possible during the past eight months due to the construction. However, visitors may again
experience production up close and personal and have the chance to see the first Panamera vehicles roll off the assembly
line in Saxony. The approximately two-hour tours are free of charge, they can also be booked in connection with pilot and
co-pilot offers, where participants have the chance to experience the Porsche driving features with a sporty Cayenne SUV on
the racetrack or on the off-road premises.
