Porsche’s August Sales Up 21% image

In August Porsche reported global sales up 20.8% to 10, 912 units, compared with the same period last year.

“Thanks to our strong brand, along with the most attractive range of models of all time, we are still on the course for growth. At the auto show in Paris, we shall surprise the world with an additional product highlight,” said Bernhard Maier, Member of the Executive Board Sales and Marketing at Porsche AG.

It seems that the automaker was not affected by the economic crisis in Europe, or the competitive pressure in China, and managed to reach growth in all sales regions. In the US Porsche sold 3,026 units, up 38.6% and in China it sold 2,882 sports cars, an increase of 28.4% over the same period last year. The model which accounted for the majority of this increase was the Cayenne SUV with 6,331 units sold, up 36.0%, followed by the popular 911 sports car, which sold 1,559 units, up 29.5%, and the mid-engine Boxter with 850 units sold, up 32.0%.
