They get Ondoyed too

According to Automotive News, the production of the Porsche Cayenne and Panamera at their Leipzig plant was halted due to the flooding in the Czech Republic.

While the production line is in Germany, the body of the Cayenne is manufactured at the Volkswagen Group facility in the Slovak capital of Bratislava. Recently, Bratislava was the subject of heavy floods from the Danube and Morava rivers, preventing the transfer of Cayenne bodies-in-white from the Bratislava plant to Leipzig by freight train.

The stoppage has also affected the Panamera, although Panamera bodies are manufactured in Hanover, Germany.

The Cayenne and Panamera are two of Porsche's strongest sellers worldwide.
