Porsche Cajun RenderingPorsche has confirmed that the new entry level SUV code named Cajun will be manufactured at the Porsche factory in Leipzig, in the Saxony region of Germany.

The Cajun production in Leipzig will create at least one thousand new jobs in Leipzig, and additional new jobs at Porsche in Zuffenhausen and Weissach. The construction work at the 400 hectare site is scheduled to begin later this year.

While nothing is official the Cajun is expected to share its platform with the Audi Q5 and according to Porsche will have their typical features such as light weight, ease of handling and agility. Porsche believes that the Cajun will attract new and even younger customers to the premium brand along with the Boxster. Market launch is very likely in 2013.
