Everything comes together in Zuffenhausen. Finest craftsmanship and high-tech production, a global company and responsibility for every single employee, the company’s headquarters and the Porsche Museum. The history of the sports car. And its future. A good example is the Mission E. The new electric Porsche is creating more than 1,000 new jobs in Zuffenhausen alone. The company is investing 700 million euros in its headquarters for this project - in addition to the 800 million euros already set aside to secure the future of the location. The expansion will include a new paint shop and assembly line. The existing engine plant will be scaled up to manufacture electric drives. The existing body shop will also be extended. Zuffenhausen will therefore remain the focal point of the Porsche world in the future.
Porsche Leipzig GmbH is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG. Since it was founded in 2000, the plant has been one of the world’s most advanced and sustainable automotive factories. A total of around 600 Macan compact SUV vehicles and Panamera sports cars saloons are currently produced at the Leipzig plant every day. 1,270 Carrera GT vehicles were also built here as a limited edition between 2003 and 2006. The Cayenne was also produced in Leipzig from 2002 to 2017. Today, the plant has a workforce of more than 4,300 employees in the Macan and Panamera body shop, paint shop and assembly as well as in administration. The plant is currently being extended for the successor of the Macan. The location is therefore getting itself ready for electromobility.
