    Delays in the Cayenne launch

    According to Automotive News Europe, it seems there are problems at the VW plant and therefore the Cayenne launch isn't going according to plans....

    Here is the link for the full article...

    http://europe.autonews.com/article.cms?articleId=52051

    The journalist says: "Instead of a planned "big bang" pan-European introduction of the Cayenne, Porsche shipped two models to each of 126 German, Swiss and Austrian dealers.

    Each dealer in the three German-speaking markets got a Cayenne S and a Turbo demonstrator for a low-key December 7 introduction. Sales in the rest of Europe will follow in January and a US debut will be in April."

    She also adds: "Porsche started Cayenne production in August, but had produced only 800 by early December, too few for a Europe-wide launch."

    I hope mine will hit the US soil in March as scheduled.... I keep my fingers crossed.

    PS: if you would like the full article, send me an email or a post on the board.

    I really don't know how accurate this article is.
    My information indicates around 1200 produced Cayenne before introduction on the 7th of dec. over here in Germany.

    I'll try to get into it next week and find out if this is true.

    Hi RC,

    I think the journalist's number is pretty accurate because during the analyst meeting, they said they produced 793 Cayenne. This was early December so may be by Dec 7th, they reached the 1,200 mark.

    Normally the Liepzig factory should be able to produce around 83 Cayenne per day (25,000/300). So let's say, they are currently running at half this pace, they are still producing around 40 per day. So from 800 to 1,200 that is 400 or 10 days of production...

    So I think both of you are right but thank you very much for checking.
