You Won't Believe How Many Porsches Were Sold In 2015


Okay, you'll probably believe it. But it's still a lot.

It’s just about the end of the year which means now is the time when automakers crow about setting sales records. Some can brag more than others, of course. One automaker that has every right to brag is Porsche. The German sports car giant just announced that it has beaten its previous yearly sales record, set in 2014, with a month to spare. From January 2015 to November 2015 the German car company sold 209,894 vehicles, crossing 200,000 sales for the first time in its history.

This is pretty damn incredible for several reasons. First off, while Porsche does have a pretty big lineup none of its cars are exactly cheap. The convertible Boxster is currently its most inexpensive offering, with an MSRP of $52,100. What we’re trying to say is that while Porsches aren’t cheap, the automaker has the luxury market on lockdown. Another fact of note is that the Cayenne was Porsche’s primary sales driver, with 68,029 models (an increase of 14 percent over last year) moved from January to November. The luxury SUV field is becoming increasingly crowded, so for the Cayenne to sell so well with such competition is pretty damn incredible.

In terms of sales by region, China gobbled up the most Porsches with 54,302 purchases on the year so far. The United States came in second with 47,819 cars sold. Together these two countries accounted for almost half of all Porsches sold in the world. Keep in mind the year still isn’t out so these sales numbers will continue to rise.
