The German based automaker Porsche has recently announced that the 100.000th example of the second generation Cayenne has been manufactured at the Leipzig plant, in Germany.
According to the car manufacturer, the Porsche Cayenne II model which is “wearing” the 100.000th number on it is a V8 petrol version, which has been painted in Pure White, being ready to be shipped to Brazil in order to arrive to its new owner. The milestone production of 100.000 units has come less than two years after the second generation of the Porsche Cayenne has been launched onto the market.
“Ten years ago, the success story of Porsche Leipzig started. What was a Greenfield site, today ranks among the most modern car plants in the world. In addition to the Cayenne, Leipzig is also where Porsche produces the very successful Panamera luxury saloon, approximately 70.000 units of which have now rolled off the production line. That is why more than 93.800 vehicles left the Porsche plant in Leipzig in 2011, more than in any year before”, said the company’s board member, Wolfgang Leimgruber.
The first generation of the SUV made its debut in 2007 and since than, the company has sold over 360.000 units of the model. The Porsche Cayenne II is enjoying the same success as its predecessor and in two years of production, almost 100.000 units have been delivered to customers.
