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.

Maier noted that the company’s key strategic objective is qualitative growth, given the “context of a mixed global economic picture.” According to the company, all sales regions posted growth in April 2012, including Germany with 21.5 percent and Russia with 22.9 percent. 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. The most notable in Porsche’s global deliveries in April 2012 was the 911 Carrera, as the company handed 3,123 units out to customers around the world, marking a 40.4 percent year-on-year growth.

Porsche delivered 1,127 units of the 911 Carrera to customers in the US, making up more than a third of the total sales. The Porsche Cayenne once again proved to be a top-seller for the company, with 6,037 units of the sports utility vehicle delivered around the world.
