Porsche has sold around 93,000 vehicles (an increase of 30.3 per cent) so far this year.
"We have again exceeded our target figures in May", said Bernhard Maier, Member of the Executive Board Sales and Marketing of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG. "In particular, we were able to boost sales significantly in the Chinese market and in Europe."
In May this year, Porsche posted an increase of 70 per cent in China compared to May of last year: exactly 5,391 vehicles were handed over to customers. In Europe, the Stuttgart-based sports car maker achieved a growth of around one-fifth with more than 7,000 new cars delivered. The home market of Germany contributed its share to the success: a total of 2,721 customers rejoiced over the delivery of their new sports car (an increase of 20.3 per cent).
By tradition, the United States is and remains the biggest market for the 911. Around 900 sports car icons were handed over to customers there in May of this year. Worldwide, the Stuttgart company delivered just under 3,000 rear-engine sports cars. The sales figures for the Cayman were also able to grow compared to the same month last year: every tenth mid-engine sports car coupé was the especially sporty version Cayman GT4.
