Porsche AG delivered over 15,200 vehicles worldwide for the month of April – starting off spring with an impressive figure. This is 21% higher than the deliveries in April 2012. From January to April 2013, Porsche has delivered 52,241 vehicles, about 20% higher than during the same period last year.
Bernhard Maier, Member of the Executive Board Sales and Marketing of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG., said that it was able to post more growth in April because of its highly popular products around the world and its evenly distributed global sales.
However, he revealed that the company is closely monitoring the market fluctuations and will be cautious in proceeding. The demand for Porsche vehicles remains strong. The brand posted growth in all regions last April.
The Cayenne was the top-selling model this month with 7,536 deliveries, about 25% higher than the same month last year. This September, the current 911 generation will gain two new models -- the top 911 Turbo and 911 Turbo S models.
Sales of this model for 2013 already surpass 10,000 vehicles. Since 1963, Porsche has produced more than 840,000 of the 911 model. Of this number, two thirds are being used on roads across the globe.
Porsche has once again set revolutionary standards in the world of sports cars which set ablaze practically the entire automotive world. The Porsche 911 Carrera is a breakthrough in engineering and design and ushers in another era of Porsche dominance.
The Porsche 911 Carrera is the first to be powered by a seven-speed manual transmission. It takes its cue from the optional seven-speed Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) module. The seventh gear has quasi overdrive capability which helps regulate fuel consumption, while the first six gears have a close ration that allows the 911 Carrera incredible acceleration. It is also the first of its kind to feature auto start and stop capabilities which are incorporated with the PDK and manual transmission as well as with a system that allows it to conserve as much as 0.6 litres per kilometers on the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC).
Another important highlight of the Porsche 911 Carrera is the new standards it sets in Porsche Intelligent Performance. This is complemented by its transformation in style which is evolutionary and very much evident no matter which angle of the Carrera one looks at. Its body is lightweight as it is made from innovative aluminum steel. The Porsche 911 Carrera also possesses a windscreen made more convex, a rear spoiler that is wider, and a raft that is made up of new functions and components.
Add to all these are the lift that has been designed significantly lower. It also comes with rear lights bolstered by narrower LED technology. The Porsche 911 Carrera guarantees dynamic, efficient, and aerodynamic driving that comes with its beautiful, coupe-like graceful body structure.
