Porsche Panamera, new Cayenne driving brand growth

Porsche said that it has started achieving outstanding results in the business year 2009/10 (July 31). According to the preliminary figures, with a growth of 17.9 percent to 7.79 billion euros, Porsche achieved the highest turnover in company history. Sales also rose by 8.8 percent to 81,850 (previous year: 75,238) vehicles.

“The record turnover dramatically demonstrates that Porsche has regained its former strength. Porsche will also follow up the positive trend in the current business year,” said Michael Macht, Chairman of the Porsche AG Board of Management.

In the previous business year 2009/10, the Panamera hit sales of 20,615 units. The Cayenne remained the highest-volume seller with 29,855 sold. The new 2011 Porsche Cayenne, which hit retailers in May of this year, has already reached 11,618 units.

At the 2010 Paris Motor Show, Porsche also unveiled the 911 Speedster and the 911 Carrera GTS.
