Earlier this week Porsche announced their worldwide sales by country increased nearly 30% in September, to 20,475 deliveries, as compared to the same period last year. Total sales, year-to-date, increased to 173,085 for a 28% increase over the same time last year. At this rate, an exceptionally good October could put Porsche very near to the 200,000 delivery mark and almost guarantees they'll hit it by November.
“The continuous increase in our sales worldwide and above all in the important domestic market of Germany clearly indicates that Porsche continues on its path to success,” said Bernhard Maier, Member of the Executive Board - Sales and Marketing of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG. “With the Porsche Mission E concept car at the IAA, we showed what an electrically driven sports car from the house of Porsche may look like in the future. The continuing development of our products will assure us of further growth in the future too.
In its home market of Germany, Porsche increase September sales to 2,269 vehicles (+26%). At the same time, China and the USA saw similar increases: China deliveries increased by 24% (5,417 vehicles) and in the USA by 23% (4,424 vehicles).
While the SUV models, the Macan and Cayenne, continue to top the sales charts, the 911 showed strong sales and is up over 20% year-to-date within the home market of Germany.
Maier had this to say about the 911, “The 911 is the best-selling sports car in the world. With worldwide deliveries of just under 25,000 models from January to September 2015, the 911 is making its mark. I am certain that we will be able to maintain our leading position with the new model. Once more, it is the best 911 of all times.”
