From January to April of this year, Porsche delivered 55,000 new cars to customers (+ 5.2%). The Panamera had the greatest jump in sales, up 17% so far this year.
“We are continuing our qualitative growth strategy with a new top mark for new car deliveries in April,” said Bernhard Maier, Member of the Executive Board for Sales and Marketing of Porsche AG. “Our next step is the expansion of the range of our Boxster and Cayman mid-engine sports cars by adding premium GTS versions.”
