Porsche Cayenne to be built at the new VW US plant?

Porsche Cayenne VW US plant

Volkswagen announced that it plans to open an US plant and more details about that will be made available after the final decision is made, in July. It seems that the most probable locations are Alabama, Tennessee and Michigan. This doesn’t come as a surprise at all, with the recent recession America is going through. One other thing’s interesting. According to the German newspaper Handelsblatt, when the plant will open, in 2010, it will also produce the next generation Porsche Cayenne.

Asked by Automotive News, VW spokesman Andreas Meurer did not deny that, actually kind of confirmed it. “When we discuss whether to build the Touareg and Q7 in the USA, we also talk about the Cayenne,” Meurer said. The new facility will build 150,000 units and the cars made there will be the Jetta and a new Passat-like sedan.
