Cayenne, China Boost Porsche Sales Again

Porsche has once again managed to stay well ahead of the global market in sales, with a 37 percent increase for the month of September, adding up to a 10,560 total figure for the month. For the year to date, the Stuttgart automaker has managed a total 90,972 units sold, which is almost as much as the whole of 2010.
These figures were helped by demand for the Cayenne SUV, of which 5,266 were delivered in September, an increase of 46.4 percent over the same month a year ago. With 2,583 units delivered in September and an increase of 25.8 per cent, the Panamera also accounts for a significant share of Porsche’s success.

Strangely enough, Porsche also reported a 20 percent increase in 911 demand, despite the fact that a new one was unveiled last month and will start being delivered on December 3rd.

China also proved a deciding factor for the company, as they sold a total of 2.146 Porsches there, more than double the figure for September 2010. What’s more, one in five Cayennes were sold there.

“We are ahead of last year’s good figures in all markets and with over 90,000 sports cars sold as of September are very close to our sales target of 100,000 units in 2011. That testifies to fascinating products and a very good performance throughout the entire value chain,"  Bernhard Maier, Porsche AG Board of Management Member for Sales and Marketing.

In more sporty news, more than 700 vehicles of the sporty, top of the range Cayman R model have already been sold.
