Porsche still on record-breaking form in GermanyHigh demand for 911 and Cayenne
Stuttgart. For the seventh year in succession, Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG of Stuttgart, Germany, has increased its registration figures on its domestic German market. With 17,747 new registrations in the 2006/2007 fiscal year (July 31), the Porsche Deutschland GmbH managed to exceed the previous year’s 17.207 units by 3.1 percent: a new personal best.
The largest boost came from the 911 series, which saw an increase of 8.1 percent to 8,437 units (previous year: 7.806). Demand for the new 911 Turbo was particularly gratifying. The sporty Cayenne SUV, in turn, registered a three-percent rise to 4,712 new registrations (previous year: 4,575). This success was facilitated by the remarkable popularity of the second Cayenne generation, which was launched with even higher-performance, low-consumption engines in February 2007. The Boxster and Cayman models, with mid-mounted engines, scrapped together 4,541 new registrations (previous year: 4,747), 4.3 percent fewer than in the previous year.
"We shall hold fast to our value-oriented growth strategy and continue to offer our customers alluring products. The successful prelude at this year’s International Motor Show in Frankfurt, with the four world premieres – the 911 Turbo Cabriolet, 911 GT2, Cayenne GTS and the special edition Cayman S – has left me confident that we will set even more records in the current fiscal year”, says Bernhard Maier, Managing Director of Porsche Deutschland GmbH.
