Porsche has crossed the 200,000th mark in annual sales for the first time in its history, delivering 209,894 cars from January to November 2015. Even so, the German car maker is yet to include the December 2015 deliveries – the new milestone corresponds to a 24 percent increase in comparison to the same period in 2014.
In November alone, the carmaker delivered 18,110 new cars, with the Cayenne accounting for more than one-third of the sales (6,579 units). The SUV has been Porsche’s best seller in 2015 with a total of 68,029 models being delivered to customers worldwide, a 14 percent rise from last year.
Meanwhile, the strongest individual market for Porsche this year has been China, despite the latter’s struggling economy. The Volkswagen Group subsidiary delivered 54,302 cars in the Asian country, an increase of 34 percent from last year. Experts predicted the Chinese automotive industry would fall this year and many companies are indeed struggling. Yet, Porsche has produced a very strong performance. Moving on, after China, United States was the biggest market with 47,819 vehicles delivered (a 9 percent increase). The European countries got 70,509 units, displaying a growth of 30 percent.
