Porsche will continue to focus on its German facilities, although Muller admitted that some other foreign plants could be considered in the future in an effort to deal with import restrictions. However, the Cajun won't be made in China, the Porsche official assured, thus keeping the name of the plant to manufacture the future SUV a secret.
And although Muller denied speculations, this doesn't mean at all that the situation is less ambiguous than it was before. Because the same Muller talked to German magazine Focus a few days ago and confirmed that assembly facilities in Zuffenhausen, near Stuttgart, and Leipzig, are not able to cope with the demand the company has predicted for the years to come.
“We will consider this year whether to start production in Asia or North America,” he said to the German publication according to an Autoweek report.
Besides opening a production facility in China, Porsche is also reportedly looking into ways to open up a test track for its customers near the Shanghai F1 track, and expand its Chinese dealer network from the current 85 to approximately 100, sometime in the future.
