The future of Porsche’s manufacturing operation in Ireland is still uncertain, but according to sources close to the company, the company is set to begin making its own small car models in the coming years.
“The future of our business is a long way off, but we are still working towards that,” a source said.
“We will be making some cars, and we will be looking to expand into the next market.”
This would be in addition to the small car offerings currently made in Europe.
The Irish-owned car company has invested heavily in the US and other markets, and will likely be looking into making a big push into the Irish market in the years to come.
This is an important area for the company as it looks to boost sales in Europe after being slow to expand in recent years.
Porsche’s biggest market outside of the US is the UK, where it currently has a large presence in its UK assembly plant.
The company has recently been building new factory buildings in the UK and will begin producing cars there next year.
“This is our most important market,” said one source close to Porsche.
“It is the most important to us in terms of making new cars.”
