Cheap Car Hire Worldwide

Porsche selling very well

Despite all of the economic and financial problems all across the globe, and we’ve reported on several acquisitions in the carmaking industry, it appears that Porsche is doing not just ok, but quite well.

Porsche has broken their annual global sales record, with 128,798 units of Boxster, Cayman, 911, Panamera and Cayenne till the end of November 2012, so keep in mind that there is one more month of sales to come, so that number could and should go higher.

Those numbers are rather incredible considering that it took the entire year of 2011 to reach 109,709 sales, so that’s a very respectable 17.6 percent increase in volume. China had the biggest increase in Porsche models sold, sales there increased by 30.2 percent to 29,268 units.

However Europe still is the manufacturer’s biggest market, with 44,965 sales to date, however the increase was only up to 13.6 percent. It should be noted that Germany represented 16,100 of those sales.

32,091 sales of the total came from the United States, with 3865 of those units being sold in November which was very strong compared to last year’s November – a 71.4 percent rise on November 2011.

Porsche’s second largest market – China – posted a 63.4 percent increase compared to November 2011.

Despite their record sales, Porsche isn’t planning on resting on their laurels, they’ve actually said that they’re taking this as an incentive to deliver an even better performance in 2012.

One has to keep in mind that the Cayman has been out of production since the middle of this year, however there is an all-new model ready to kick off in 2013, as well as a new 991-generation 911 going into its first full year of production.

We’ll see what happens next year.
