Porsche is investing around 150m in development centre image

Porsche has announced an investment of 150 million Euros for its Weissach development center as part of a long-term strategic plan, part of which is a new high-tech wind tunnel and also a state-of-the-art design center.

Above all, a new studio will offer more space for the Porsche designers, who are involved from the very earliest concept phase of each vehicle development process. Due to extended tasks, increased capacities are urgently required in the Weissach centre of competence for sports car construction.

“The new system will help us to maintain Porsche’s top position in the fields of aerodynamics and design and to further extend our lead. Outstanding design with optimal aerodynamic efficiency have always been classic Porsche strongholds”, says Wolfgang Dürheimer, Porsche AG Board of Management Member for Research and Development.
