Sports car manufacturer Porsche posted a 24.1% growth in October 2012 with 11,688 vehicles sold compared to the same month the previous year. So far this year, Porsche had total deliveries of 116,050 cars, about 15.6% higher than the first 10 months of last year. Specifically, the new 911 Carrera 4 all-wheel drive models started selling at the beginning of autumn.

Bernhard Maier, Member of the Executive Board Sales and Marketing, said that the high sales in the Americas and in Asia for the month of October more than made up for the low sales in Europe. Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, explained that for the first 10 months of this year, the company has sold almost as many units as the entire year in 2011.

Porsche expects that sales for the remaining weeks of the year will be strong. Porsche reported high demand in the Middle Kingdom last October, with 57% higher deliveries in China to 2,439 units compared to October last year. The 911, Cayenne, Panamera, Boxster and Cayman in the Americas sold 42.6% more units. Porsche delivered more than 3,211 vehicles to customers in the U.S., reflecting a 41.5% increase compared to the same month in 2011.

The Cayenne is still Porsche’s top-selling model. Porsche sold 34.2% more in October 2012 than the same month last year with sales of 6,897 SUVs. This time around, the 911-series had higher sales than the previous year. It sold 30.8% more with 1,522 new cars delivered. Porsche delivered 1,149 vehicles, which is more than three times higher than sales in October 2011.
