Lamborghini only ever makes about 5000 or less of a single supercar, but when Porsche goes about its business, it does so in a big way. Going mainstream with cars like the Panamera and Cayenne has boosted their sales hugely, especially in recent years.
So it shouldn’t surprise that the Germans have boosted production last year. However, we didn’t expect to hear that the Leipzig factory make almost half as many cars in 2011.

A staggering 93,838 new Porsche vehicles rolled off the production line in the German state of Saxony. These figures are divided thus: 62,004 examples of the all-wheel drive Cayenne and 31,834 of the four door Panamera.

“We were able to increase production in Leipzig by 47 per cent compared with the year before and are showing an increase also in 2012, following the record performance in 2011,” explained Wolfgang Leimgruber, Member of the Executive Board Production and Logistics of Porsche AG.

And the future looks bright for Leipzig, as the facilities are being expanded to make room for the new Cajun. An additional 1,000 jobs are being created at Leipzig for the ‘Cajun’ project, the automaker says.
