Porsche, a global car manufacturer that saw its sales rise 21 percent between fiscal years 2010 and 2011, recently broke ground on its new North American headquarters. According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the company plans to relocate from Sandy Springs, Georgia, to Aerotropolis, Georgia, which is located near the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
Officials with Porsche said they will invest $100 million in the new facility and it will be completely soundproof. Company representatives noted that the state-of-the-art complex will be finished in 2014, and the facility could bring new jobs to the area.
"This is the future," Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed told the newspaper. "We think we have good bones, and we think this is just the beginning."
