Porsche reveals deliveries are up by 13 per cent compared to 2020
Between January and September of 2021, Porsche delivered 217,198 vehicles worldwide – a 13 per cent increase compared to 2020.
In the first three quarters of 2021, Porsche handed over 217,198 cars to customers around the globe, marking a 13 per cent rise year on year.
Demand for the Stuttgart-based manufacturer’s cars rose across all sales regions, with the US again recording particularly strong growth.
“The order books are nicely filled and are, in turn, filling us with optimism and enthusiasm as we approach the year-end rush. However, the coronavirus situation remains dynamic and we are facing challenges in sourcing semiconductors. For these reasons, we are keeping a very close eye on current developments to ensure that we can continue to react in a flexible manner,” says Detlev von Platen, Member of the Executive Board for Sales and Marketing at Porsche AG.
The Porsche Cayenne remains the most successful model, with 62,451 examples delivered, between January and September, followed by the Macan with 61,944 units – a 12 per cent increase. The fully electric Taycan was also a hit, with 28,640 cars being delivered to customers. Now in its second full year on the market, it is on a par with the iconic 911 sports car, 27,972 of which were delivered in the first three quarters – an increase of ten per cent. The 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman were purchased by 15,916 customers, which represents a rise of one per cent compared to the same period last year. Deliveries of the Panamera also remained firmly at the previous year’s level with 20,275 examples – an increase of one per cent.
The Cayenne remains the biggest seller
Once again, the largest increase was seen in the US: Porsche delivered 51,615 vehicles there in the first nine months, which represents an increase of 30 per cent compared with the same period last year.
China, which is the largest single market, contributed 69,789 vehicles to the total number delivered, an increase of 11 per cent. In total, deliveries to Asia-Pacific, Africa and the Middle East increased by 12 per cent. Porsche cars were delivered to 97,841 customers in these regions.
