500,000 Porsche Cayenne made in Leipzig, Germany
Porsche
When the first Porsche Cayenne rolled off the assembly line at the Leipzig plant in 2002, nobody could foresee how very successful the sports-car SUV would be. "We started with around 70 units a day. Today we produce five times as much owing to the high market demand. In the past year alone, over 83,000 Cayenne vehicles for customers in more than 125 countries have rolled off the assembly line. A genuine success story of the Porsche plant in Saxony," explains Dr. Oliver Blume, Member of the Executive Board Production and Logistics of Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG.

2013 Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet review: Video
The Sports Car Guys
The 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet (991) is a very good performance car. The open top version of the rear-engined sports car is one of the best open air cars that you can currently buy. The 400 horsepower car is capable of going from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds (with PDK and 4.5 with the manual transmission). The car is one that can be driven everyday, but that has plenty of performance when you step a bit harder on the gas pedal.
