Porsche resumes production of 911 after plant explosion

Porsche announced today that production of the iconic 911 has resumed at its plant in Zuffenhausen, Germany after an explosion in the spray-painting unit brought things to a halt last week. No one was injured, but the external combustion caused several hundred thousand euros worth of damage and cost the German automaker 800 units of production. Porsche said the cause for the explosion was a technical defect, and the aforementioned damage would mostly be covered by insurance. As for the missing 800 units, Zuffenhausen workers can expect some additional overtime hours this year as the plant works to make them up.
