Porsche has quietly announced the 2014 Macan will go into production in December.

The announcement comes hot on the heels of the completion of a new paint shop which required nine air vents to be lifted into place by a helicopter. The paint shop is just part of a €500 ($656 / £430) million investment into the Leipzig plant to prepare it to build the new crossover.

According to Porsche Executive Board Chairman Siegfried Bülow, "This will complete the next major step in the preparatory stage of production of the Porsche Macan. The paint shop facilities have already been installed and the first car bodies will be painted in a test-operation as early as August. We are on schedule and are very keen to see the first car roll off the production-line in December."
