Due to the success of the new Porsche 911, Porsche will be relocating production of the 718 Cayman from Zuffenhausen in Stuttgart to the Osnabreuck plant.
Speaking to Automotive News Europe, August Achleiner, head of Porsche’s sport car lineup said, "We are currently planning on moving the bulk of Cayman production in the course of this year to Osnabrueck, possibly all of it, in order to meet the increased demand for the 911.”
The relocation will allow Porsche to focus its attention on the new 911, as the plant in Zuffenhausen is rather small in size.
Automotive News Europe also reported that the shift of the Cayman’s production is expected to happen in August during the summer holidays.
The Osnabreuck plant was acquired by the Volkswagen Group back in 2010. Prior to the acquisition, the plan was owned by Karmann until its demise in 2009.
