Feb. 25 (Bloomberg) -- Porsche SE, maker of the 911 sports
car, said production will be shut down at its main plant for at least two days after a gas explosion in the paint shop. Two workers were treated at a hospital for injuries and then released following the 5 a.m. incident, the Stuttgart, Germany- based carmaker said today in a statement. ``The extent of the property damage cannot be determined at this moment,'' Porsche said. ``Because the sprinklers went off, parts of the production as well as the paint shop are under water.'' Porsche builds the 911 model series at the main Zuffenhausen plant, producing 160 of the cars there daily. Halting 911 production won't affect parts assembly in Zuffenhausen for the Cayenne and Boxster models, which are built elsewhere. Porsche said it has assembled a crisis management team led by
production chief Michael Macht to handle recovery.
