Modern modular manufacturing allows flexible demand-orientated vehicle production. In close collaboration with well-established service providers, the production process can be dynamically adapted at any time to meet current requirements. Moreover, modular production improves quality as well as reducing costs. To date, Porsche has invested approximately EUR 280 million in the Leipzig site, and plans to invest another EUR 500 million to expand the assembly plant into a fully-fledged production plant including body assembly line and paint shop. Since December 2002, the Cayenne has been built at the Leipzig Plant. In August 2003 production began on a limited number of 1270 Porsche Carrera GTs. Three of these super sports cars were being hand assembled each day by May 2006. Panamera, the fourth series out-door four-seater sports coupé has been built at the Leipzig plant since 2009.
