Porsche was forced to halt production at its Leipzig factory in Germany yesterday due to a lack of supply caused by floods that affected the Czech Republic where its partners are located. However, today Porsche announced that the Leipzig site has resumed production.
Porsche explains that the plant is now working, albeit at limited capacity, since the supply issue still hasn’t been left behind. “We’re starting today with one shift. The supply situation however remains critical,” Siegried Buelow, the man who leads the plant, said.

The German carmaker is currently analyzing the situation and talking with its suppliers in order to determine how many Porsches can be produced in the following days.

Porsche claims that, thanks to its flexible production system, it will manage not only to return to its normal figure of 450 cars per day, but also to recover the lost ground.
