Porsches have traditionally been built in Germany but even an exclusive marque like the Stuttgart-based sports carmaker is not immune from the forces of globalization. Already we’ve seen it move production of its Cayenne SUV to a plant in Slovakia and now there are reports that it could even start assembling vehicles in India.

Porsche is keen to expand sales in India and one way it plans to is by assembling cars locally, reports NDTV. According to the source, an official at last week’s Frankfurt Motor Show revealed Porsche would build cars in India for the local market and possibly the surrounding region as well.

If the plan goes ahead, we suspect any Indian manufactured Porsches will be assembled from imported knocked-down kits that only require final processing. The carmaker has recently set up a new office in India and will be working closely with VW, which is also expected to move production to the country.
