Porsche AG says it is cutting the workweek for employees at its Leipzig, Germany, plant from 40 hours to 38 hours beginning in August. Porsche says the plant, which employs some 300 workers, has just completed training for the start-up phase of its Cayenne SUV and longer hours no longer are necessary. Additionally, Porsche says it will add 70 jobs at Leipzig in the second half of 2003, as production of the Carrera GT supercar begins.
