Porsche Malaysia, represented by Sime Darby Auto Performance, celebrated a significant milestone as the 1,000th Porsche Cayenne rolled off the production line at its assembly facility at Inokom in Kulim, Kedah.
Since its inauguration of the first local assembly facility for Porsche outside of Europe in March 2022, the Porsche Cayenne has been connecting sports car dreams for many Malaysian Porsche fans.
The iconic Porsche ‘sports car for five’ recently celebrated its 20th birthday in 2022, and through the years with each successive generation, it has become an important member of the Porsche family. The latest Porsche Cayenne continues this illustrious legacy with capability off-road, dynamism on-road and luxurious fittings to create an unmistakable all-rounder.
“We are very pleased to reach this milestone with the locally assembled Cayenne, affirming once again that the Porsche SUV remains a favourite with our customers. Our local assembly facility in Inokom continues to support our growth, to meet the demand from sports car fans in Malaysia. This growth in demand also speaks volumes about our high quality – proof that a Porsche is built to the highest standards,” said Christopher Hunter, Chief Executive Officer of Sime Darby Auto Performance.
The local assembly facility underlines the importance of Malaysia, affirming the long-standing partnership between Porsche and Sime Darby. It continues to be a hundred per cent staffed by highly skilled Malaysians, empowering the futures of local communities.
Lifestyle-oriented Tequipment accessories are available upon request for the locally assembled Cayenne, including a roof transport system with a bicycle rack, a luggage net, a luggage compartment liner, all-weather floor mats, and a car care case.
Customers who desire even more exclusivity can also opt for the Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur Package, which elevates luxury elements of the locally-assembled Cayenne. The option adds a SportDesign exterior package, a Sports exhaust system, LED taillights, LED door projectors that cast the Porsche logo upon door opening, and matching vehicle key.
A bespoke Porsche Design custom-made chronograph is also available, inspired by the locally assembled Cayenne. The coloured ring on the dial is customisable based on the colours of the Cayenne, and additional individual engraving can be performed to make the piece truly one of a kind.
Over and above this significant milestone, the locally assembled Cayenne has already taken on vibrant expeditions throughout Malaysia since its launch a year ago – unleashing possibilities and proving its mettle as a luxurious and reliable travel companion for shared adventures.
Stefan Bogner, renowned publisher of ‘Curves’ magazine, took to the road in the locally assembled Cayenne, exploring the most beautiful routes and destinations in Malaysia. Through lush rainforest, sandy beaches, or eclectic city murals, and with local culinary delights throughout, the Malaysian edition of Curves Magazine showed that the Cayenne could do it all.
Malaysian photojournalist Annice Lyn also traversed a new path with a fellow trailblazer – the locally assembled Cayenne – to explore and capture obscure and beautiful landscapes across the Peninsula. She embarked on a journey to redeveloped heritage sites, immersed in local culture, and delivered unfiltered and authentic depictions of people and landscapes.
