That is a great view of the production line and shows the quality of work being done to produce this fabulous car. This a hand/robot drive process that has plenty of skilled workers checking the process all along the process. Well done, thanks !

Just seeing the amount of specialized equipment and tooling needed to put these together, it makes a lot of sense for VW to move to a modular platform like MQB. I hope the Touareg sticks around (at least in the rest of the world) for a little while longer!

You might have noticed in the video that the robots on some scenes show both Touareg/cayenne on the machines. Porsche is still selling a lot of these cars at great profit to VW. It is Porsches biggest seller,so it will be around till those sales fall off.

VW Touareg and Porsche Cayenne are built on the same production line at an ex-Skoda factory in Slovakia as they share most of the bodyshell and driveline. Part-assembled Cayenne's are then shipped to Germany for final assembly but Touaregs are fully assembled in Slovakia.

Since Porsche is an integral part of VW Group there's no real question of one selling to the other.
