    VW to kill off Cayenne and Panamera

    returning to the roots

    Farewell to the Panamera and Cayenne

    September 2nd 2009, BE interactive
    Farewell to the Panamera and Cayenne

    The power struggle between VW and Porsche has come to an end, and with it will come the end of Wendelin Wiedeking's reign as the director of Porsche. Wiedeking was responsible for shifting production at Porsche's Zuffenhausen factory, which formerly manufactured 2-door sports cars, to building SUVs and sedans.

    Meanwhile VW chairman Ferdinand Piëch wants to get Porsche back to its basics. As a result, two Porsche products, the Panamera sedan and the Cayenne SUV, will be scrapped and will disappear at the end of their production cycles in 2016.

    In the meantime, we may see an entry-level model, based on a VW platform, that will take after the Porsche 356, along with a sports car to be part of the Carrera GT line.

    AFAIK, the Cayenne and Panamera are made far from Zuffenhausen in the Eastern part of Germany, no?

    I forwarded this link to the Porsche Press Department for further investigation.

    In my opinion, this is the biggest BS ever because Porsche even plans to introduce variants of the Cayenne and the Panamera but these days, everything can happen...I guess.

    Btw: I talked to two people who are pretty high up in the Porsche "foodchain" over the past half an hour and both told me that this is absolutely ridiculous, one even believed this could be a case for their law department.

    I think that it just "wishful thinking" rather than real news.

    What do you mean, the law department of Porsche could be killed off by VW as well? Smiley

    "Wishful thinking" on behalf of Porsche competitors!

    Because Porsche have registered excellent sales and profits from the Cayenne at least and I expect this to continue with the Panamera.
