Stuttgart. Porsche is continuing the positive trend seen to date this year: The sportscar manufacturer delivered 13,393 vehicles to customers around the world in October of this year, achieving an increase of 14.6 percent compared with the same month last year. In keeping with the start of autumn, a particularly large number of customers who purchased a model with all-wheel drive could look forward to embarking on their first trips in their Porsche.
“We got off to a good start in quarter four and were able to continue our course for growth across all regions in October”, said Bernhard Maier, Member of the Executive Board Sales and Marketing at Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG. “We are now looking forward to the world premieres of the Macan at the Los Angeles Auto Show and the Panamera Turbo S at the Tokyo Motor Show. The Panamera Turbo S complements our range of sports saloons, enabling us to tailor our offering even more closely to the exclusive requirements of our customers.”
