Today, another sign that comes to confirm that the Cajun will be rolled off the assembly lines of a German facility emerged: Volkswagen plans to invest up to 500 million Euros in the Leipzig production facility, as it probably gears up for building the new Porsche model.
VW's production head Michael Macht told Automobilwoche that the German group decided to expand the Leipzig facility because all the other locations are already working at full capacity. In addition, Volkswagen expects demand to grow again in the future, which would bring the Germans in the impossibility of manufacturing new models.
Earlier this year, persons from within Porsche revealed that the Cajun might be made in Leipzig alongside the Cayenne and Panamera, but Porsche remains pretty reticent over the future crossover, saying that it will excel in agility and sportiness.
“Under the working name "Cajun", this efficient and sporty model will further expand the world’s most successful Porsche segment in the SUV sector. In addition to the new Cayenne, which has clearly consolidated its market position as the most successful sporty SUV in the premium segment, the "Cajun" will also have a very positive impact with its typical Porsche features such as light weight, ease of handling and agility,” Porsche said in a statement in late 2010.
