After a construction period of less than 48 months, Porsche is opening a new production facility for its first all-electric sports car at its Zuffenhausen site. Production of the first customer vehicles will begin as scheduled on 9 September 2019. Assembly will take place in a factory of the future – flexible, networked and using 4.0 production technology. It is a further step towards the Zero Impact Factory with no negative environmental impact production of the Porsche Taycan with zero-emission powertrain at the Zuffenhausen site will be CO-neutral. The construction project included several individual subprojects, each itself with considerable scope. The result was a body shop, a paint shop, a plant for the production of electric motors and components, a vehicle assembly hall and the connecting transport technology. A total of 35,000 tonnes of steel were used for the new production facility – as much as for 140,000 Coupe bodies of the 991 generation of the 911 model line. The total area of the buildings amounts to 170,000 square metres.

Mr Albrecht Reimold, Member of the Executive Board for Production and Logistics at Porsche AG said that “The new plant reflects the brand's tradition and sends out a clear signal about the future of Porsche. It was a deliberate decision to build the Taycan in Zuffenhausen the home of the brand’s heart and soul.”
