Customer deliveries in October


Stuttgart. With yet another increase in sales in October 2011, Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, has already delivered more than 100,000 vehicles for the full year. The 9,419 vehicles delivered to customers worldwide were 6.8 per cent more than the same month the previous year. In the first ten months the Zuffenhausen-based company delivered a total of 100,391 new cars, 28.2 per cent more compared with the same period the year before.

“With the benefit of outstanding products and in partnership with our dealer organisation, we have already managed to deliver more than 100,000 vehicles” said Bernhard Maier, Executive Vice President for Sales and Marketing. “That means that notwithstanding the change of model with the 911 we are in all probability heading for a new best ever performance for customer deliveries in 2011.”

Porsche managed to grow in virtually every region in October 2011. Demand was again particularly high in China, Porsche’s second-largest market, where the Zuffenhausen-based company managed to sell fully half as many cars again as the month before. In the German domestic market as well, the sports car manufacturer achieved growth of almost five per cent last month. Particularly popular here was the diesel version of the Panamera with 139 vehicles sold.

The most sought-after Porsche model worldwide was again the Cayenne. In October alone, Porsche sold less than 5,200 of the sporty off-road cars, a good fifth more than in the previous month. Compared with the same period last year, deliveries in the first ten months increased by not quite 63 per cent to all of 50,600 units of the Cayenne. This included approx. 3,500 hybrid versions, enabling Porsche to build on its leadership position in hybrid-powered, off-road vehicles.
