Stuttgart. Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, is getting 2012 underway with a world premiere: The sports car manufacturer is unveiling the Cabrio version of the new 911 for the first time at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit (9 – 22 January). As one of the world’s largest auto shows, the Detroit Motor Show traditionally ushers in the new automotive year. The show in the automotive capital is regarded as an important international marketplace and forum for trends and opinions that is of particular significance for the North American market.
“The USA is and remains an important market for Porsche with good growth prospects,” said Bernhard Maier, Porsche AG Board of Management Member for Sales and Marketing. “Detroit was deliberately chosen for the world premiere of the new 911 Cabrio because the USA is far and away our largest 911 Cabrio market.” The Coupé variant of the sports car classic will be available in the USA starting in February 2012 with the Cabriolet following a few months later, providing a fresh impetus.
In 2011, Porsche’s dealers in the USA sold 29,023 Cayennes, Panameras, 911s, Boxsters and Caymans to US customers. That was 15 per cent more than in the previous year. The most successful model in 2011 was the Cayenne with 12,978 units (+55.6%). Shortly before the change of model, Porsche even managed to boost 911 sales by 4.9 per cent to 6,016 vehicles. In the New Year 2012, the Zuffenhausen company anticipates selling more than 30,000 vehicles in the United States.
To achieve this, the sports car manufacturer is fielding numerous new models in the United States: the premiere of the new 911 will be followed by the 430 hp Panamera GTS in spring. This will subsequently be followed by the Cayenne Diesel as Porsche’s first compression-ignition car in the USA. The compact Cajun off-road vehicle will also be celebrating its debut in 2013.
“By building a new headquarters in Atlanta in the US State of Georgia we are underlining our growth ambitions in the region,” said Bernhard Maier. The complex, adjacent to the new terminal of Atlanta’s international airport, will comprise not just modern, energy-efficient offices for approximately 400 employees but also the technical service department as well as a training centre and circuit where customers can test the Porsche vehicles’ outstanding driving characteristics. The new US headquarters, which will for the first time centralise all administrative, training and sales functions and financial services, is scheduled for completion in the second half of 2013. Porsche Cars North America has been based in Atlanta for the past 13 years. Porsche also plans to build an additional customer test facility in Carson in California, between the airports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. Porsche is investing more than 100 million US dollars in the Atlanta head office and test facility in Carson.
Stuttgart/Leipzig. The Chairman of the Supervisory Board and Chairman of the Board of Management of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Wolfgang Porsche and Matthias Müller today joined numerous guests from the world of politics and business in laying the foundation stone for the second extension of the Leipzig site. It is an important milestone, which writes another chapter in the successful history of Porsche’s Saxony site. “We are investing another 500 million euro in the production facility to build the Cajun in Leipzig. This is not just a mark of confidence in the manufacturing skills of our Leipzig colleagues but also an important contribution to the economic development of the region.” said Matthias Müller on the morning of the festivities.
Porsche Board of Management member with responsibility for production Wolfgang Leimgruber added: “We want to expand the production of high-performance sports cars and off-road vehicles in Leipzig. At the same time the ambition is for the plant to achieve the highest standards with a forward-looking quality strategy.” More than 1,000 new jobs and a new 17 hectare production site are being created to handle the production of the Cajun. “The fact that the assembly plant is now to become a fully fledged factory with body assembly line and paint shop is an enormous motivation for me and my team,” explained Siegfried Bülow, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche Leipzig GmbH, citing as a challenge the tough timetable governing the plant extension, with production of the Cajun scheduled to start as early as the end of 2013. “The acquisition and qualification of new staff is also an important item on our agenda. We are trusting in tried-and-tested processes, thus ensuring that the first Cajun from Leipzig is of outstanding “typical Porsche” quality, setting standards in its class,” Bülow said.
Porsche’s Leipzig plant is also setting environmental standards, being one of the world’s most efficient car factories. For example, the very efficient air recirculation and power cut-off technologies in the paint shop ensure particularly economical energy use. “Sustainability of the very highest order is enshrined in our environmental principles. Our use of ultra-modern equipment and facilities is a valuable contribution to frugal automotive engineering,” said Porsche Board of Management member with responsibility for production Wolfgang Leimgruber.
Leipzig Lord Mayor Burkhard Jung also emphasised the impressive development of the site: “Porsche’s decision in 1999 to build a plant in our city brought the industrial site to life with a kiss. Porsche was followed by many important business start-ups, putting Leipzig in the fast lane. 10 years and more than 420,000 “Made in Leipzig” Porsches later, this industrial site has finally come of age.”
Porsche’s site in Saxony has been producing the Cayenne since it opened in 2002. After a first extension, the four-seater Gran Turismo Panamera was produced here as well. It is assembled alongside the sporty off-road vehicle on the mixed-model assembly line. Porsche has invested approximately 280 million euro in the Leipzig site to date.
Porsche is expanding its globally very popular SUV segment with the efficient and agile “Cajun”. The light and handy, typically Porsche “Cajun” will inject fresh momentum alongside the new generation Cayenne, which has managed to consolidate its market position as one of the most successful off-road vehicles in the premium segment to a significant degree. As an attractive model, it is intended – alongside the Boxster as the market-leading, two-seater, mid-engine sports car – to provide new, even younger customers with an entrée to the world of Porsche.
It was a packed house at the Boardwalk Audi 2012 A6 Launch Event June 29th in Plano, Texas. From the sushi and taco bar catered by A Fiore, to the hand-rolled cigars, good drinks and music, the completely new Audi A6 was the true star of the show. Actually, the true “stars” of the show were the 300+ guests who mingled with some of the coolest people in Dallas.
It was a hot night both inside and outside of Boardwalk Audi. A special thank you goes to Modern Luxury Dallas and our very special clients who made the evening a night to remember. Luxury has progressed.
