Porsche sold 11,061 new sports cars in February – record

Porsche Ag., the maker of the iconic 911 sports cars has sold  11,061 new cars globally – up 6 percent compared to February 2013.  In the first two months of 2014, Porsche sold its customers a total of 23,286 new vehicles.

“We’re as at February over last year’s figures all around the world,” said Bernhard Maier, Member of the Executive Board Sales and Marketing of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG.

“That says a lot about our fascinating products and a high level of achievement along the entire added value chain. At the moment, we’re introducing the new Macan to our dealers in Barcelona before its worldwide launch starting in April,” he said.

In Europe Porsche sold 3,332 new cars – up 14 per cent over February 2013 when the Stutgart based automaker sold only 2,920.  In its home market the automaker sold 1,456 vehicles – up 13 percent from 1,290 in February 2013.

According to the official press release, in February 2014 the Panamera had a large share in the company’s success with slightly less than 2,000 units delivered, an increase of eight per cent.

 

Last year Porsche sold a record of 162,145 new cars worldwide – up 15 percent compared to 2012. What’s more interesting is that even with 162,145  new cars sold, Porsche was able to churned out nearly as much profit as the much larger flagship VW brand that, globally has sold 4.7 million cars.

Overall, Porsche’s total revenue was up 3 percent to 14.3 billion euros ($19.9 billion) in 2013. The iconic automaker employs 19,456 workers worldwide.
