The management team is also based here, making this location the core of the company. And it continues to develop, grow and be transformed, as can be seen, for example, in the new environmentally friendly paint shop. With this paint shop,
Design offices, test stands, workshops and our motorsport department are all close together. The short distances at the site allow easy and direct exchange between the individual development departments. The result is a tightly linked and coordinated development process, from the first sketch to the finished standard-production vehicle.
The three new buildings at the Weissach Development Centre were officially opened in summer 2014, marking the conclusion of the largest investment project in the centre's history. The new buildings - the design studio with concept car construction facility, an aero-acoustic wind tunnel and the Electronics Integration Centre - set new standards in forward-looking vehicle development 'engineered and designed in Weissach'.
In December 2013, the
In addition to a customer centre that is used for a wide variety of events, the factory also has an FIA-certified test track for new vehicles and an off-road track.
A unique setting, housing state-of-the-art technology and lean processes.

* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. From September 01, 2018 the WLTP will replace the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO2 emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from September 01, 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, irrespective of the testing method used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars, (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will therefore be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel consumption, electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
