Porsche posted a 13-percent year-on-year gain in global deliveries in May 2013 to 15,020 units. The sports car maker delivered 67,261 new vehicles to customers around the world in the first five months of 2013, a 19-percent improvement over the same period in 2012. Bernhard Maier, Member of the Executive Board Sales and Marketing at Porsche AG, remarked that in terms of customer deliveries to date, the carmaker have surpassed its expectations in the current year.

He added that despite the continuing volatility of the market development, the carmaker is “cautiously optimistic” for the second half of 2013. He noted that the Porsche 911, in particular, “delights customers and aficionados,” being highly coveted in its 50th birthday.

He disclosed they are honoring the Porsche 911 with an exclusive limited special model at the 2013 IAA Frankfurt Motor Show that is now available to order.

Porsche sold 3,927 new sports cars in the United States in May 2013, reflecting a 38-percent increase over the same month in 2012. Porsche likewise posted growth in China, where it delivered 3,206 sports cars in May 2013 for a 6-percent hike against the same period in 2012. Accounting for a large part of Porsche’s deliveries in China is its Cayenne sports utility vehicle.

The sports carmaker also logged considerable demand for its new models in the Boxster and Cayman model ranges, as Porsche delivered 2,805 mid-engine sports cars to customers in May 2013, almost three times more than posted in the same month last year. Porsche also recorded a 12-percent year-on-year gain in deliveries of its 911 models to around 3,000 units.
