The world premiere of the new generation Porsche Panamera was also a reason of joy for some young workers in Germany. The Stuttgart-based brand employed new workers so that the new sedan can be built inside its Leipzig factory. Starting this autumn, the plant the site will employ more than 4,000 people for the first time since its establishment in year 2000.

Since the market launch of the Panamera in 2009, the bodies-in-white have been manufactured and painted at the Volkswagen factory in Hanover and then transferred to the Porsche site in Leipzig for preassembly and final assembly. Now Leipzig is taking over the entire production process, including body shop and paint shop.

Porsche has expanded its Leipzig factory for the fourth time to allow for full production of the Panamera. Around €500 million was spent on the project. Among other things, this included building the new body shop with a production area of around 56,000 sq. m on the western factory premises in just two years. 

In addition, Porsche made adaptations to assembly and the infrastructure. The company brings together all areas of vehicle optimisation in the new quality centre. Six hundred additional jobs were created.
