The Porsche factory in Leipzig incorporates the latest advances in car manufacturing to meet customers’ needs and expectations, where 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.
