Macan continues to be the strongest-selling model
Atlanta, Georgia. Porsche today announced increased sales worldwide in September 2015. The Stuttgart-based sports car maker continues to see sales figures climb, with 7,005 new cars delivered in Europe during September, representing gains of 51 percent. Comparing periods from January to September for 2014 and 2015, Europe is revealed as one of the strongest markets, with figures up by 34% (58,150 vehicles). In its home market of Germany, Porsche has similarly been able to improve its position: in September 2,269 vehicles (+26%) were delivered to customers. The U.S. market is also maintaining a successful course with 4,424 vehicles delivered in September, up 23 percent over September 2014.
"The continuous increase in our sales worldwide and in the 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 Porsche may look like in the future. The continuous development of our products will assure us further growth in the future."
Demand for the Porsche 911 is high in Germany. With 5,301 vehicles delivered from January to September 2015, the 911 was able to record an increase of 21 percent year over year. This makes the 911 the most successful Porsche in Germany. Maier said, "With worldwide deliveries of just under 25,000 models from January to September 2015, the 911 is making its mark. I am certain the 911 will be able to maintain its leading position with the new model."
In addition to the classic sports car, the SUV models were also in high demand during September. Topping the figures worldwide is the Macan with 7,670 models delivered, an increase of 36 percent on the corresponding month of last year. The Cayenne achieved a 75 percent sales increase during September with 6,592 vehicles delivered sold internationally.
"The results demonstrate more than ever that Porsche has a highly attractive model mix and a highly motivated team," said Maier.
