Porsche Posts Best First Quarter Ever in 2017


Porsche has made a strong start to 2017 with around 60,000 vehicles delivered to customers worldwide in the first quarter. This means the sports car manufacturer has exceeded the number of vehicles delivered in the same period in the previous year by around 7 percent and is reflecting on the best first quarter in its history. The drivers of growth were China and the company’s home market of Germany, as well as the Panamera and Macan model lines, which both saw double-digit growth.

In the first quarter of 2017, China was once again the strongest individual market. With a total of 18,126 vehicles delivered, the Chinese market exceeded last year’s result by 10 percent. In Europe, the company delivered 19,084 units (an increase of 7 percent).

An increase of 19 percent meant that a total of 7,160 vehicles were delivered to customers in Germany. In addition to the ongoing success of the 911, of which nearly 1,600 vehicles were delivered in Germany, the new Panamera that was introduced at the end of 2016 was responsible for this significant growth. Porsche has also continued its success story in the USA, delivering 12,718 vehicles (an increase of 4 percent).

The figures for the new Panamera are particularly pleasing, having exceeded last year’s result by 12 percent with a total of 3,630 units delivered. Deliveries of models in the 718 model line increased by 4 percent, totaling 6,060 vehicles. The Macan reinforced its position as the best-selling Porsche with 24,797 units delivered, representing an increase of 15 percent.
