March 18, 2011 Leave a comment

Porsche has confirmed that its new Cajun baby crossover will be built at its factory in Leipzig, Germany, with an expected launch date of 2014

The Cajun will be Porsche’s junior crossover SUV, which will be pitted against the likes of the Mercedes-Benz GLK, the BMW X3, and the Range Rover Evoque. The Cajun will be based on the Audi Q5, and will have styling influenced by Audi designer Walter de’ Silva. 

To accommodate production of the new model, Porsche will expand the factory and install a new assembly line and paint shop. Additionally, production of the new Cajun is expected to create at least one thousand more jobs for the Stuttgart carmaker.

Porsche CEO Matthias Müller said, “During the production of the Cayenne and the Panamera, our Leipzig plant has impressively proved that it can produce premium vehicles of highest quality. The decision in favor of this location is proof of our trust in the skills and qualifications of our Leipzig associates, and at the same time another contribution to the economic advancement of the region.”
