Porsche is planning to increase production of the Cayenne next year after sales of the model increased by 37 percent in the first half of 2011. The demand for the new Porsche Cayenne caused delivery times to peak to as much as 12 months in markets like China.

Porsche wants waiting time to be no longer than six months.

“We’re now looking into ways we can expand production capacity to be able to serve our customers more quickly,” said Bernhard Maier, Porsche’s sales chief.
