Porsche delivers 71,500 new cars into the hands of customers
Panamera and Macan set the pace in the ongoing year
. Porsche AG has increased its deliveries in the year up to now by six percent in comparison to the same period of the prior year: from January to May 2014, the sports car maker delivered just under 71,500 new cars to customers worldwide. In the reporting month of May, Porsche sold more than 16,500 vehicles, an increase of ten percent.
“The global interest in our exciting range of models continues unabated,” says Bernhard Maier, Member of the Executive Board Sales and Marketing of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG. In deliveries, Porsche has exceeded its planning figures, thus systematically carrying forward its qualitative growth. “Since May 2014, for the first time more than 20,000 people are working in the international Porsche dealer organisation,” Maier adds. One focus of the sales network development is on the qualification of employees in the Porsche Centres.
So far this year, Porsche has recorded higher figures in all sales regions. In Europe, the sports car maker achieved a growth of ten percent with just fewer than 24,000 sold vehicles. The United States, the biggest Porsche market, contributed its share to the sports car maker's success: nearly 19,000 sold vehicles reflect a jump of seven percent in comparison to January to May 2013.
The Panamera in particular set a fast pace and, with worldwide nearly 11,000 deliveries, showed the biggest growth of all model ranges (+20%). In May 2014 alone, Porsche boosted its deliveries of the sports saloon by 35 percent, to just under 2,000 new cars. The new SUV sports car Macan will be launched in all markets worldwide by the end of the year. At home in Germany, the sales up till now show that around 60 percent of the Macan customers have ordered a Porsche for the first time.
