Porsche AG posted a 7.2 percent year-on-year increase in its customer deliveries for April 2012, selling a total of 12,588 vehicles. This brings the sports car maker’s worldwide delivery figures for the first four months of 2012 up 12.6 percent year-on-year to 43,141 new vehicles. Bernhard Maier, member of the Executive Board Sales and Marketing of Porsche, said the company’s performance for customer deliveries in April 2012 was well in line to reach its Strategy 2018 growth.

Sales in these two countries helped the company post a year-on-year 13.1 percent customer delivery growth in Europe with 4,682 vehicles for April 2012.
The German sports car maker also posted an 8.4 percent year-on-year increase in deliveries in the United States with 3,437 units for April 2012.
