Porsche’s global deliveries rose 10 % to 14,150 units in November as the automaker posted growth in all sales regions, with particularly strong demand from China and robust deliveries in Europe.
Porsche said global demand remained high for its iconic 911 model in November as sales rose 47 % to nearly 3,000 cars. Sales of Porsche’s Boxster and Cayman models rose 55 % in the same period to 1,933.
Sales in the carmaker’s No. 2 market China rose 27 % to 3,707 vehicles compared with last year’s figure. In Europe, where car sales have been hit hard by continuing economic problems, Porsche increased deliveries by 7 % last month to 3,900.
In its home market of Germany, Porsche sold 1,465 cars, a rise of 22 %. In the United States, the Volkswagen Group unit’s biggest-single market, 3,966 new cars were sold, an increase of 3 % and the highest figure for November that Porsche has ever recorded for the market, the company said in a statement.
Last month, Porsche unveiled its Macan compact SUV at the Los Angeles auto show, ahead of European sales in April. The Macan is expected to become the automaker’s top-selling model and will be key in helping Porsche achieve its goal of boosting annual sales to 200,000 units by 2018.
