Production of the Porsche Cayenne has resumed at a slow pace after being stopped because of floods in the Czech Republic.
The floods made it impossible for the Cayenne bodies to be shipped to Porsche’s plant in Leipzig, Germany.
“We’re starting today with one shift,” Siegfried Buelow, head of the plant, said in a statement on Thursday. “The supply situation however remains critical.”
Production of the Panamera was also disrupted even though its parts supply wasn’t affected by the floods. Pre-assembly work for the car continued.
The plant normally assembles 450 cars a day, and the company said earlier in the week that it will be able to make up for lost volume by scheduling more shifts at a later date.
