The Porsche Boxster is being built at a VW plant


A lot of us might think all Porsche models are being built in Germany. For the ones that do not know, the first and second generations of the Porsche Boxster roadster are actually manufactured in Finland by Valmet specialists; for example we have the Cayman Coupe, the model that has as base the Boxster. This lasted until last year, when the carmaker transferred the production to Germany. At the beginning it was built together with the Porsche 911 in Zuffenhausen. Unfortunately, the demand was so high that the factory did not handle the process. The plant is already full with the Panamera, Cayenne and the Macan compact SUV and so Volkswagen decided to take the Boxster under its wing and build it at its Osnabruck plant. The first model developed here was the Indian Red Boxster S for a Bavarian client. The carmaker really thinks that the connection between the two will help both grow faster and better. The plant, the employees and especially the clients will feel the positive effect of this collaboration. According to Matthias Muller, Porsche boss, the cars that will be built in the VW plant will be exactly like the ones built in Stuttgart.



Now, the Osnabruck facility has more than 1.800 employees that dedicate their time and energy into building the best cars. The total annual capacity reaches 100.000 units and it assembles the VW Golf Cabriolet. Here the specialists have already provided the side and rear components fir the 3rd generation Porsche Boxster. For the ones that do not know yet, this is not the first model built here in Germany. Between 1969 and 1976, the Osnabruck facility manufactured the Porsche 914 and between 1991 and 1994 the Porsche 968. These are all the information available on the matter, now all we have to do is wait and see the results.
