STUTTGART, Germany and ATLANTA--May 8, 2014: Porsche AG has again boosted its worldwide deliveries to customers in April 2014: with 16,300 vehicles sold, the sports car maker bettered the successful figures of the same month last year by seven percent. From January to April of this year, Porsche delivered 55,000 new cars to customers (+ 5.2 %). The four door sports sedan Panamera was especially coveted and posted the greatest jump in sales with 17 percent so far this year.

"We are continuing our qualitative growth strategy with a new top mark for new car deliveries in April," said Bernhard Maier, Member of the Executive Board for Sales and Marketing of Porsche AG. "Our next step is the expansion of the range of our Boxster and Cayman mid-engine sports cars by adding premium GTS versions."

All regions booked an increase in sales from January to April 2014. The response by customers in China was again especially encouraging: with 13,300 deliveries, Porsche achieved in its second largest market a plus of 12 percent compared to the same period in 2013. Europe also developed positively: 17,800 vehicles sold represent an increase of eight percent from the same period of the prior year.

The new Macan has been available at the Porsche Dealers in Europe and the Middle East since April. In its first reporting month, 2,000 customers were delighted to take delivery of their compact SUV from Porsche. Also, the 911 model range gets a much celebrated addition this weekend: on May 10, 2014, the new Porsche 911 Targa 4 and 911 Targa 4S, which have already won over the automotive media with their innovative, fully automatic roof system, are making their debut in Europe.
