New baby SUV will be built alongside the Cayenne and Panamera in Leipzig
16 March 2011

Porsche has confirmed construction of its new Cajun baby SUV will take place in Leipzig.

The firm will extend the facility where the Cayenne and Panamera models are currently built to accommodate the Cajun, leading to the creation of more than 1000 jobs.

Construction work on extending the Leipzig plant to include body assembly lines and paint shop for the Cajun will begin later this year and the car is expected to be launched in late 2012/early 2013. The plant was previously extended in 2009 to accommodate the Panamera.

Porsche says the Cajun will be “light and easy to handle” and the firm hopes it will “pave the way for new, even younger customers to enter the world of Porsche”.
