Porsche celebrates building 100,000th second-generation Cayenne

Porsche has celebrated the production of the 100,000th second-generation Porsche Cayenne at the company’s Leipzig facility in Germany.  The production milestone also marks the Leipzig plant's 10 year anniversary.

The 100,000th second-gen Cayenne was a V8-powered model finished in “pure white”. The SUV will now make the long journey from Porsche ’s Leipzig, Germany plant to its new owner in Brazil.

“Ten years ago the success story of Porsche Leipzig started. What was a greenfield site today ranks among the most modern car plants in the world. In addition to the Cayenne, Leipzig is also where Porsche produces the very successful Panamera luxury saloon, approximately 70,000 units of which have now rolled off the production line. That is why more than 93,800 vehicles left the Porsche plant in Leipzig in 2011, more than in any year before.”

The Leipzig plant, now in its 10th year of production, is expected to produce its 500,000th vehicle later this year.
