Official: Porsche greenlights Cajun production for Leipzig

Cajun’s Future Production Site is Official

It has been decided: the Cayenne’s smaller sibling will be built at the same plant in Leipzig.

The new vehicle, with the project designation “Cajun,” will require a significant expansion of the plant of more than 1.5 square miles. Porsche’s supervisory board decided that Leipzig will become a “fully fledged” production facility for the new SUV that will include a body assembly line and a devoted paint shop. Construction of the new plant will begin later this year, and will ultimately result in an additional 1,000 new jobs.

“During the production of the Cayenne and the Panamera, our Leipzig plant has impressively proved that it can produce premium vehicles of highest quality,” said our chairman Matthias Müller. “The decision in favor of this location is proof of our trust in the skills and qualifications of our Leipzig associates, and at the same time another contribution to the economic advancement of the region.”

When built, the “Cajun” will represent Porsche’s fifth model line. It will further extend our SUVs with a smaller, lighter, very efficient and agile new offering in this popular vehicle segment. As an attractive entry-level modeI, it is expected to pave the way for new, even younger customers to enter the Porsche brand.
