Car Body Painting

Insight @ Porsche 2020

Including Guided Tour through the Porsche Paint Shop!

"Zero Impact Factory" for electric vehicle - Environmentally neutral Porsche paint shop in Zuffenhausen

In the newly built factory for the all-electric Porsche Taycan, the first vehicles have recently rolled off the assembly line. It was the largest construction project at the headquarters in Zuffenhausen. In two-shift operation, 40,000 units can be produced per year. The new Taycan factory with body shop, paint shop and assembly was built for around 700 million Euros while the other series were still in production.

The focus of the "Car Body Painting Insight @ Porsche" is, of course, the paint shop, which conference participants can examine in detail on an exclusive guided tour. At various stations, experts will provide information on how, for example, the latest technologies from Industry 4.0 have been implemented in production. The production concept is highly flexible and designed with the goal of CO2 neutrality in mind. In addition to the use of electricity from renewable sources and biogas for heat generation, the new production buildings are also energy-efficient. In view of the limited space available and the extremely short construction period, a "factory within a factory" was built without disrupting the existing sports car production, which is running at full capacity.

Details on these topics will be explained during the Automotive Circle conference "Car Body Painting Insight @ Porsche". Discussions on sustainability and environmental protection, digitalisation and the integration of an electric sports car into an existing production facility and the associated effects on the paint shop provide valuable impulses.
