Porsche's Leipzig plant re-opens its doors
15 May 2009

Porsche has re-opened the doors of its Leipzig factory to the public, following an eight-month closure while the plant was expanded.

Both the Porsche Panamera and Cayenne are built at the factory, meaning visitors could theoretically watch their car being built.

The two-hour tours are free to visitors.

There is also a test track where visitors can sample the Cayenne, Cayman, 911, 911 Turbo and Panamera. The Cayenne can also be taken on an off-road course.

However, these driving experiences must be booked in advance. They last four hours, include a three-course meal and cost 650-820 Euros (£580-£730).

You must also agree to pay an insurance excess of 2500 Euros (£2227) in the event of an accident.

Our Verdict

Porsche Panamera

Can the four-door Porsche Panamera still do what’s expected of a Porsche?

  • Citroën C3 Aircross
    First Drive
    17 October 2017
    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
