Porsche seals Cajun deal

2011-03-17 12:09

PLUS ONE: The entry-level Cajun SUV is expected to attract younger buyers to Porsche.

While Porsche is being especially cagey about the name of its small SUV, tentatively called Cajun, the Zuffenhausen-based firm has revealed where its sprog will be built.

Porsche’s fifth model, codenamed “Cajun”, will be built at the company’s Leipzig plant which is being retooled for the car and will include a body assembly line and paint shop. Construction work at the site is scheduled to begin during 2011, the company said.


Matthias Müller, chairman of the Porsche AG board of management, 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 favour 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,” Müller continued.

Porsche is set to extend its SUV offering with the Cajun, which is based on the Audi Q5 and will slot beneath the accomplished Cayenne in the company’s model line-up. It is hoped the entry-level SUV will, along with the Porsche Boxster, entice even younger customers into the Porsche family.
