Porsche’s global sales in the first 11 months of 2012 already higher than 2011 total sales image

Porsche has delivered 128,978 new vehicles globally in the first 11 months of this year, already surpassing the previous year’s total sales of 118,868 vehicles.

In November 2012, the Stuttgart-based sports car manufacturer sold a total of 12,928 vehicles, accounting for an increase of 38.7 percent over the same month last year.

“The fact that we have already surpassed the previous year’s result in November is no reason for us to rest on our laurels. On the contrary, it is an incentive to deliver maximum performance in the next year – in spite of continued uncertainty in the marketplace,” said Bernhard Maier, member of the Executive Board Sales and Marketing of Porsche AG.

In November, Porsche reported increased turnover in all regions. Its cars were in particularly high demand in the U.S., with 3,865 vehicles delivered, representing an increase of 71.4 percent compared to the same month last year. In China, Porsche’s second largest market, the sports car manufacturer delivered 2,919 vehicles to customers, accounting for an increase of 63.4 percent compared to November 2011.

The third generation of the Porsche Boxster enjoyed high demand internationally in November. Deliveries of around 1,200 Roadster cars are almost three-times bigger compared to the same month last year. Porsche’s iconic 911 Carrera sports car posted 2,019 sales in November, an increase of 91.6 percent over the same month last year.
