Porsche is moving parts of its production from the Porsche main plant in Zuffenhausen to the Volkswagen site in Osnabrück, Lower Saxony.

Porsche is moving parts of its production from the Porsche main plant in Zuffenhausen to the Volkswagen site in Osnabrück, Lower Saxony.

The overflow production of the 718 model series will start there from the middle of next year to meet the high demand from all Porsche customers. The move will not affect the number of employees in Zuffenhausen.

“The multi-brand plant in Osnabrück has already been a proven partner in our Porsche production network in the past,” says Albrecht Reimold, Member of the Executive Board for Production and Logistics at Porsche AG. “Our colleagues were responsible for the overflow production of the Cayenne and the 718 Cayman. We are pleased that we can draw on this many years of experience and realize as many of our customers’ sports car dreams as possible.”

The main factory in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen is running at full capacity with production of 911 and 718 models. Porsche is pursuing an ambitious e-mobility strategy: the 718 series will be fully electrified by the middle of the decade. By 2030, the share of all new vehicles with a fully electric drive must exceed 80 percent. Even then, the 718 and 911 model series will continue to be produced on the two-door line in Zuffenhausen.
