Porsche AG logs 9.5% rise in November 2013 sales

Article by Christian A., on December 9, 2013

Porsche AG posted a 9.5-percent year-on-year increase in sales -- equivalent to 1,465 units -- in November 2013 to over 14,000 vehicles. The German sports carmaker also logged 14.2 percent year-on-year jump in sales in the January-November 2013 period to 147,290 new cars. “Over the past few months, our attractive model range has helped us to achieve growth in all our regions," said Bernhard Maier, member of the executive board Sales and Marketing.

He remarked that they are currently working with their sales teams on high investments for the Macan launch and “are looking forward to an exciting 2014.” During November 2013, Porsche delivered 3,707 vehicles to customers in China, reflecting a 27-percent surge in sales over the same month in 2012.

The sports car maker logged a 2.6-percent hike in sales in the United States to 3,966 new cars – the highest figure for November that Porsche has ever recorded for the American market.

Porsche also posted a 47.6-percent surge in sales of the Porsche 911 in November 2013 to almost 3,000 rear-engine sports cars. Porsche also logged a 55-percent hike in deliveries of Boxster roadsters and mid-engine Cayman Coupés in November to 1,933 units.

New Porsche Cayman is laden with precise lines and sharp sculpted edges that help underscore its low, extended silhouette, as defined by a roof line that flows further to the rear and a windscreen that has been shifted forward by around 100 mm.

Moreover, the new Cayman features shoulder line running from the flared wings to the rear side panels. Interestingly, the door mirrors of the new Cayman are located near the top shoulder. The distinctive dynamic recesses in the doors help guide air into the characteristic air scoops on the rear side panels of the car, and then air flows to the engine.

The front end of the new Porsche Cayman features cooling air inlets positioned both on the left and right and then becomes larger as they flow to the flanks. These air inlets feature integrated round headlights with four-point daytime running lights (position lights). The next generation of the Cayman also features a large, low rear aluminum lid as well as a rear end marked by wraparound edges.

LED brake light runs across the width of the Cayman just above rear window. The rear end of the car also features a rear spoiler that is mounted directly to the rear lid. The thin blade of this spoiler is positioned higher and could be deployed even at a steeper angle.

Helping differentiate the new Porsche Cayman from its predecessor are its newly designed tailpipes of its new exhaust system, which now visually end at a low, central point. The tailpipes also help differentiate the Cayman from the Cayman S. The Cayman features an oval tailpipe while the Cayman S boasts of two-branch dual tailpipes.
