In the first three quarters of 2020, Porsche delivered 191,547 vehicles to customers worldwide. Compared to last year, sales decreased by 5%.

“Porsche is confidently tackling the coronavirus crisis. With our newest product range, we see only a slight decrease in sales. The Chinese market recovered quickly from the quarantine, and demand in other markets is also growing noticeably – all these factors have largely determined the result, ”said Detlef von Platen, Member of the Management Board of Porsche AG responsible for sales and marketing.

China continues to be Porsche’s largest sales market. In the period from January to September, 62,823 vehicles were delivered to customers. In Asia-Pacific, Africa and the Middle East as a whole, encouraging trends are also evident: with a total volume of 87,030 vehicles sold, Porsche achieved a slight increase of 1% over last year. In the US market, sales totaled 39,734. In Europe, 55,483 Porsches were sold from January to September.

Among the individual models, the Cayenne remains the most sought after by customers, with 64,299 copies delivered to customers in the first nine months of this year. Thus, thanks in part to the popularity of the Coupé, sales were up 4% over the previous year. In addition, the 911 model continues to be in high demand, with 25,400 units sold – 1% more than in 2019. 55,124 Macan cars were sold. Sales of the electric Porsche Taycan in all markets were 10,944 in the first three quarters.

“The consequences of the coronavirus crisis have not spared Porsche either. Nonetheless, we are optimistic about the future – primarily thanks to our impressive range of models and an ever-growing number of incoming orders, ”says Detlef von Platen.
