The very high demand for the Porsche Cayenne has resulted to higher production figures at the carmaker’s Leipzig site in Germany, where it is building the sports car. Oliver Blume, member of the Executive Board for Production and Logistics at Porsche AG, remarked that they started producing just around 70 Cayennes every day at the plant in 2002.
The site now builds five times that amount due to high demand, Blume said. He noted that in 2012, Porsche delivered more 83,000 Cayenne vehicles for customers in over 125 countries – all from the site’s assembly line. He described the Cayenne’s feat as “a genuine success story of the Porsche plant in Saxony.”
Porsche recently reached the 500,000th production milestone for the Cayenne, with its owner picking up the unit.
Every year, 2,500 Porsche customers from around the world pick their new vehicle in person, allowing them experience driving a Porsche at the Leipzig site’s FIA-certified circuit and the off-the-road track.
