Panamera sport sedan shows strongest sales growth
Stuttgart/Atlanta. The Stuttgart-based sports car manufacturer has delivered 120,000 new vehicles to customers worldwide from January to August 2014, thus achieving an increase of 12 percent in comparison to the same period last year. In August 2014, Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG delivered around 15,000 vehicles – a jump of 30 percent in comparison to the same month last year.
“Over the course of this year, we have achieved quite a strong growth worldwide,” Bernhard Maier, Member of the Executive Board Sales and Marketing of Porsche AG, stated. “We posted two-digit growth in Europe as well – despite existing uncertainties in several markets. The new Cayenne will provide further stimulus for growth during the next few months and support our qualitative growth strategy.”
So far this year, Porsche has recorded similar growth rates in its three biggest sales regions. The sports car maker has announced an increase of 16 percent in Europe, with a little less than 39,000 new cars delivered to customers. In China, more than 28,000 vehicles were handed over in the period from January to August 2014, surpassing the figure of the previous year by 15 percent. In the U.S. market, the deliveries rose 12 percent, to reach a sales figure of nearly 32,000 units sold.
With an increase of 23 percent, the Panamera posted the highest growth in the on-going year: 16,700 sport sedans were delivered to customers all over the world. The second generation of the Cayman mid-engine sports car coupé was also very popular and outdid last year’s figure by 16 percent, with 7,200 vehicle deliveries.
