Production of the Porsche Boxster has started at the Osnabrück plant owned by Volkswagen. Those who attended the official ceremony on the production line include Prof. Dr. Martin Winterkorn (Chairman of the Board of Management of Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft), David McAllister (Minister-President of Lower Saxony), and Matthias Müller (Chairman of the Board of Management of Porsche AG).

Last August, Volkswagen and Porsche completed the formation of an integrated automotive group. This meant that they could already significantly intensify their cooperation.

Other major personalities who witnessed the first Porsche Boxster as it rolled off the Osnabrück production line include Boris Pistorius, Mayor of Osnabrück, Hubert Waltl, Member of the Board of Management of the Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand with responsibility for Production and Logistics, and Wolfgang Leimgruber, Member of the Board of Management of Production and Logistics, Porsche AG.

A customer in Bavaria, Germany, got the Indian red Boxster S with black roof. Prof. Winterkorn said during the production line ceremony that the production of the Porsche Boxster in Osnabrück is indicative that Volkswagen and Porsche are expanding fast together. The Osnabrück production makes synergy effects that will help customers, employees and the factory.

Minister-President McAllister said that the beginning of Boxster production in this plant is an obvious sign that the plant is already established as a competence centre for convertible and small series production in the Volkswagen Group. He added that he is glad that Porsches that stand for premium quality built in Germany have started to roll off the production line in Lower Saxony.
