For the first time in its history, Porsche AG has delivered more than 200,000 cars in a single production year with still one full month remaining to the end of 2015.
A total of 209,894 cars were delivered to the end of November 2015: 24% up on the same period last year. Cayenne was November’s big winner: almost 40% on the same month last year with 6,500 models delivered. Cayenne has also beat Macan this year: a total of 68,000 cars delivered between January and November 2015.
China has been the biggest market so far in 2015, no doubt a surprise to those who have been talking that corner down. Chinese Porsche buyers took delivery of 54,302 cars through the first eleven months of 2015: up 34% on the same period last year.
Despite selling almost ten percent more cars than last year, the US continues to trail China’s success by some 6,500 cars: twelve percent of the Chinese total. Europe was up thirty percent for the year, with 70,500 cars sold and delivered.
