Porsche builds 100,000th Cayenne

Atlanta, Georgia – Porsche AG, Stuttgart produced its 100,000th Cayenne, a Turbo model finished in “Prosecco” metallic paint, at its production line at Porsche’s Leipzig plant yesterday.

The Leipzig plant opened in August 2002. Porsche originally estimated sales of 25,000 Cayenne vehicles annually, but the Cayenne has exceeded demand since its launch in December 2002. Most are sold in North America, where Porsche sells approximately 40 per cent of its luxury SUVs.
