We will be continuing on the same path in 2021 by launching online sales in additional countries,” says Barbara Frenkel, Vice President Sales Region Europe.

The offer includes standard variants of the Porsche models as well as rare derivatives.

The dealers in the nine countries offer most of their new and used cars on the platform. These include standard variants of the Porsche models as well as rare derivatives. There are also plans to further expand the platform. The aim is to create a marketplace for all Porsche products and services. 

New customers and wide range of used vehicles 

Initial analyses conducted in the various countries have already identified interesting trends. In Italy, for instance, 40 percent of all online buyers are new customers for Porsche. Used cars are particularly popular in Italy, making up over 90 percent of cars that have been sold on the platform so far. Consistent with the love that Italians traditionally have for the iconic Porsche 911, the car is the most widely sold online model. The platform will be further developed depending on the analysis of customer behavior. 

Worldwide expansion of activities 

Alongside the rollout in Europe and activities in the U.S., customers in China have also been able to access Porsche products online since autumn 2020. They can now search and find pre-owned vehicles from Porsche retail partners using WeChat, China's most popular smartphone app. In addition, certain Porsche lifestyle products and driving experiences can be purchased online via the new Porsche flagship store on Tmall, Chi-na's largest B2C online marketplace.
