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?
