Shanghai/Stuttgart. Porsche ended the first six months of 2023 successfully with a 15 per cent gain in deliveries.

China continues to show positive development, with strong performance from 911 and Taycan
Despite the still challenging environment in China, Porsche delivered 43,832 vehicles to the market from January through June, representing an increase of 8 per cent year-on-year. Two iconic models, the 911 and the Taycan, both achieved high double-digit figures in new deliver-ies in the first six months of the year, with a year-on-year increase of 57 per cent and 46 per cent respectively. At the same time, the sales of Pre-owned Cars in the first half of 2023 were 20 per cent ahead of the same period of last year, demonstrating that the desirability of Por-sche products remains strong.
Europe and Germany post high double-digit growth
With 36,574 delivered vehicles in Europe in the first half-year of 2023, Porsche managed an increase of 23 per cent over the same period last year. Also, in its home market of Germany, significantly more people took delivery of their vehicles than in the same period last year: 17,118 units, representing an increase of 24 per cent. North America posted double-digit gains as well. 41,937 delivered vehicles represent a year- on-year increase of 12 per cent. In the overseas and emerging markets, 27,893 cars were delivered to customers, representing an increase of 16 per cent.
The 911 remains a customer favourite in its anniversary year
SUVs remain among the most popular Porsche models: the Porsche Macan was delivered to 47,755 customers (+26 per cent). The Cayenne was delivered to 46,884 customers (+12 per cent).
The iconic 911, which turns 60 this year, continues to raise the customers’ pulse to race speeds: the 911 was delivered to 26,124 customers worldwide (+21 per cent). In the first half-year, 17,991 customers took delivery of the all-electric Taycan (-5 per cent). The electric sports car continued to be more affected by shortfalls in the availability of parts than other model lines.
The Panamera luxury saloon posted 17,565 deliveries (+13 per cent). The 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman models contributed a further 11,035 deliveries (+13 per cent).
“Value-oriented growth is the top priority for Porsche,” said Detlev von Platen. “To achieve that, we are continuing to focus on flexibility as the global economic situation remains challenging. Especially in China, we are striving for a balance of supply and demand in line with our luxury positioning.”
