The new Cajun crossover from the Porsche stables will be built Germany’s Leipzig. In a bid to spruce up the facility, Porsche has kicked off efforts to add more infrastructure into the factory. These add-ons are expected to come in the form of new assembly line and paint shop.
The earlier Cayenne and Panamera production had already spurred the carmaker to spruce up the production facility at Leipzig. The move had been to add that extra quality into new car production.
The Cajun is to be made on the Audi Q5 platform and will come with a design influenced by Walter de’ Silva, according to the company. Most probably looking at a 2014 roll out, the car will be positioned to rival models such as Mercedes GLK, BMW X3, and Land Rover Evoque.
It is expected that the Leipzig facility will see great amounts of sprucing up. The expanded facility will also have on offer at least one thousand new jobs.
