Porsche News: Start of production for the new Macan

Stuttgart/Leipzig. Series production of the new Macan has begun at the Leipzig site, with the first customer vehicle successfully making its way through the body shop, the paint shop and along the assembly line. Parts of the factory were adapted specifically for the model. The vehicle in the exterior colour Mamba Green Metallic goes to a Chinese customer. China has become the top-selling market for Porsche and with more than 100,000 deliveries since its market launch in 2014, the Macan is particularly popular. The continued high demand for the compact SUV means that series production is being ramped up more quickly than ever before: By the beginning of September, production of the new Macan at the Leipzig site will increase to over 420 units per day, meaning that it will match the high production rate boasted by its predecessor in just a few days.
