Porsche manufactures Macan and Panamera at its Leipzig facility
Porsche cars have always been in the fast lane, but recent supply chain issues at the company’s Leipzig facility in Germany have slowed down production. Porsche Macan and Panamera are particularly well-liked models.
Albrecht Reimold, Board Member for Production and Logistics at Porsche AG, told German website Automobilwoche that a shortage in components is currently holding up model takeouts at the Leipzig facility. He claims that there are hundreds of unfinished vehicles parked here. He was quoted as saying, “Right now it is really very tense because we have to be constantly vigilant.” “When the situation will fundamentally improve is difficult to predict.”
Due to the ongoing semiconductor chip shortage, a problem that has long plagued the automotive industry globally, the situation at hand has grown even more complicated. Reimold stated, “Looking ahead, we need to standardise more in terms of components to lessen supply chain complexity.
One of its most well-known facilities is the Porsche one in Leipzig. Around 600 Macans and Panameras are produced here every day at the facility, which began operations in 2002. A factory with nearly 5,000 employees has undergone numerous expansions over the past 20 years. In the past, this location has produced vehicles like the Cayenne and Carrera GT.
Recent times, however, has impacted production processes and the recent lockdown rules in China and the continuing Russia-Ukraine war remain a big concern.
