The milestone moments they are many and different in the history of each automotive industry. They may include from presentation of a technologically advanced engine or model until building a new “radical” platform or one state-of-the-art factory.
However, definitely one milestone is common to most and concerns him number of vehicles manufactured. This kind of occasion was celebrated by Porsche a few hours ago, as from cproduction line of the Leipzig factory the serial number model came out 2.000.000.
Not by chance, the “flagship” model was the Turbo E-Hybrid version of the 3rd generation Porsche Panamerawhich was presented before a few days in China. After all, from 2016with its second generation, the Panamera can be considered a “resident of Leipzig”. This happened since the settlement of the German city had already turned from “simple” assembly plant to complete factoryacquiring a paint shop as well as a body building department.
“The success story of the Leipzig factory it is directly connected to the Panamera. Like the facility itself, the Panamera represents growth and evolution.”, emphasized the chairman of the Board of Directors. of Porsche Leipzig, Gerd Rupp.
Panamera’s ties to Leipzig date back to 2009, when its production line started operating. However, then, construction of the body as well as painting was held within the Porsche Group. In Leipzig, the first relevant works began on November of 2013, by converting the facility into a full factory. “Since then, we have been building models in their entirety, from body to final assembly”Rupp explains.
As a result, this installation is important economic factor for the region, having more than 4,400 employees. In fact, in recent years it has evolved, with the addition of sector of electromobility and thus in the coming years they will be able to be produced purely thermal, electric and hybrid powertrains from the same production line.
As for model number 2,000,000? The specific Porsche Panamera Turbo E Hybrid in color Madeira Gold Metallic “travels” for the Dubai in order to deliver to its owner.
