There are brands that have come to make history and little by little they are evolving their adaptation to competition and the automotive industry from a competitive point of view. Porsche is celebrating thanks to the fact that one of its most important plants, the one in Leipzig, celebrates 20 years of uninterrupted production. On 20 August 2002, a Porsche Cayenne was the first car to roll off the production line at the Leipzig factory. What started 20 years ago it has become a real success story for Porsche and since then, the Saxony factory has been able to steer car production into the future.
The start of this production plant is framed in 1999, when the decision was made to make it the second production center next to the Stuttgart plant. With three years of frantic work to produce its center, everything began to manufacture the Porsche Cayenne, a separate mounting area was added for the construction of the Carrera GT supercar. From 2003 to 2006, Porsche Leipzig produced 1,270 units of this limited edition model.
Years later, this led to the construction of another plant and logistics center that would focus on producing and designing the new Panamera. In 2011, after the decision to carry out in Leipzig all the production process of the new Porsche Macan, the facilities were expanded and in 2013 Leipzig became an integral plant, with its own body and paint sections.
Being one of the most important plants in the market, Porsche is preparing to start the future of the firm. A new body section has been created for the next generation of the Macan, which will be launched as an all-electric model. Con more than 4300 people working in the plant, it is estimated that every day they manufacture an average of 550 units of the Macan and Panamera models. It is one of the most important factories in the German market, being the engine of the region and reinforces its commitment to the industrial area of Saxony.
