Bernhard Maier, member of the Executive Board for Sales and Marketing at Porsche AG, remarked that the carmaker got off to a good start in the fourth quarter of 2013, and was able to continue its course for growth across all regions in October.
He said that they are looking forward to the global debuts of the Macan at the Los Angeles Auto Show and the Panamera Turbo S at the Tokyo Motor Show.
