Porsche confirmed back in Nov. 2010 that it is moving forward with the production of a compact SUV – code named the ‘Cajun.’ According to Volkswagen AG’s head of production, the Cajun SUV could be produced at the sports car maker’s factory in eastern Germany.

“There hasn’t been a final decision, but I see the Cajun at Porsche’s Leipzig plant,” Michael Macht, who is the former CEO at Porsche, told Automotive News Europe.

The Porsche Cajun will be produced using key elements from the Audi Q5.

Porsche announced last week that it will be adding more than 1,000 employees by 2015, 500 of which will be involved with the production of the Cajun.
