Porsche wants to consolidate output Boxster and Cayman at Zuffenhausen site

Article by Christian Andrei, on July 18, 2014

Porsche is planning to consolidate output of its Boxster and Cayman sports cars at its main plant in Zuffenhausen, Stuttgart after deciding to use parent Volkswagen Group's Osnabrueck site as an overflow facility for Cayenne production. Starting next summer, VW’s Osnabrueck site will produce 20,000 Cayennes annually to relieve pressure on Porsche's Leipzig site.

The Osnabrueck site currently produces some Boxster models when the Zuffenhausen plant is overloaded. According to Porsche, it will make over EUR400 million ($546 million) in investment at Zuffenhausen, which also builds the 911 and 918, to pave way for additional Boxster and Cayman production.

Uwe Hueck, chief of Porsche's works council, said in a statement that all two-door Porsche models will be built at the carmaker’s Zuffenhausen site in the future.

According to Porsche, around three quarters of the investment would be spent to build a new facility for building car bodies. Porsche disclosed that overflow production for the Boxster and Cayman at Osnabrueck will continue until 2016.
