Developed in Stuttgart, built in Liepzig, and shipped from Hamburg, Porsche vehicles are as authentically German as weizenbier and bratwurst.

Origins of Porsche

Porsche was launched as an automotive consulting company in 1931, but didn’t produce cars under its own marque until 1948. Ferry Porsche sought to create a lightweight, small sports car that was unlike anything on the market, and he did so with the launch of the first Porsche production car, the iconic 356. It’s with Ferry Porsche’s original guidance that the German auto brand still produces small, lightweight sports cars that use their power efficiently.

Is My Porsche Really Built in Germany?

The main factory and headquarters of Porsche are still located in Stuttgart, Germany to this day. Porsche has expanded production of Cayenne and Panamera models to a facility in Liepzig. A few components of the Cayenne are manufactured in Bratislava, Slovakia, but all Porsche models are assembled in Germany. From 1997 to 2011, the Cayenne and Boxster were outsourced to Finland, but they have since returned home to Germany. The short answer is, yes, your Porsche was built in Germany.
