Porsche had a new record month in February. The 911 proved to be the driver of the double-digit growth. Its sales doubled by almost 43 percent compared to the previous month.
With a record February, the car manufacturer Porsche continued its successful journey unabated. In addition to the ongoing huge growth in China, this time the new version of the classic 911 proved to be a particular driver of sales figures. It sold 42.8 percent better than in the same month last year.
Porsche up 19.4 percent in February
As Porsche AG announced in Stuttgart, the Swabians sold 8,846 vehicles worldwide in the second month of the year. That is an increase of 19.4 percent compared to the same month last year. In the first two months of the new year together, Porsche's sports and off-road vehicle business grew by 11.3 percent. The January plus was a little weaker at 4.8 percent. In 2011, Porsche set a new record with around 119,000 cars and broke the wall of six-digit sales for the first time in the company's history.
In China in particular, Porsche achieved a solid increase of exactly 74 percent compared to the previous year, with 2,288 vehicles sold. And in the rapidly growing Middle Kingdom, the seventh generation of the 911 will only be available shortly - so further impulses are likely to follow.
All major sales regions worldwide were up. Europe shows an 18.6 percent increase, Germany 1.9 percent. The new 911 has been available there for a long time. Once again, the pulling power of the Cayenne SUV was also confirmed. In February it accounted for exactly every second Porsche sale (4423, plus 14.6 percent). (dpa)
