Porsche has delivered 55,000 vehicles to customers in the year up to nowPanamera model range posts record growth

Stuttgart. Porsche AG has again boosted its deliveries to customers in April 2014: with 16,300 sold vehicles, the sports car maker racked up a gain of seven per cent in comparison to the successful figures of the same month last year. From January to April of this year, Porsche delivered more than 55,000 new cars to customers (+ 5.2 %). The Gran Turismo Panamera was especially coveted on the international scene and posted the greatest jump in sales with 17 per cent so far this year.

“We are carrying forward our qualitative growth strategy with a new top value in new car deliveries in April,” said Bernhard Maier, Member of the Executive Board Sales and Marketing of Porsche AG. “Our next step will be an expansion of the range of our Boxster and Cayman mid-engine sports cars by adding premium GTS versions.”

All regions booked an increase in sales from January to April 2014. The response on the part of our Chinese customers was again especially encouraging in its strength: with 13,300 deliveries, Porsche achieved in its second largest market a plus of twelve per cent compared to the same period in 2013. Europe also developed on a positive note: 17,800 sold vehicles mean a leap forward of eight per cent in comparison to the same period of the prior year.

The new Macan has been available at the Porsche Centres in Europe and the Middle East since April. The first 2,000 customers were delighted in the reporting month by the delivery of their compact SUV. The 911 model range gets a much celebrated addition on the weekend: on May 10, 2014, the new Porsche Targa, which has already won over the professional automotive experts with its innovative, fully automatic roof system, is making its debut on the market in Europe.
