Porsche is in a festive mood, and rightly so! The iconic brand has just rolled out its two-millionth car from the Leipzig production line, and it's nothing short of stunning. A Panamera Turbo E-Hybrid, dressed in Madeira Gold Metallic, is now making its way to a lucky owner in Dubai.

This isn't just any milestone; it's a testament to Porsche's remarkable journey since 2009, when the Panamera first graced Leipzig.

It's where the second generation kicked off production in 2016, transforming the plant into a full-fledged factory complete with a paint shop and body production. This expansion was a game-changer, not just for Porsche, but for the entire automotive world.

"The move to a full factory was pivotal," says Gerd Rupp, the plant's management board chairman. It meant that models could be built from scratch – from body construction to final assembly. This strategic shift laid the groundwork for new car projects and ongoing growth.

But there's more to the Leipzig factory than just making cars. It's a beacon of economic growth and employment in central Germany, proudly housing a workforce of over 4,400 individuals.

Over time, it's evolved into an electric vehicle hub, and Porsche is set to take things up a notch. The plan? To manufacture combustion, electric, and hybrid drives all on a single line.
