Porsche has sustained strong delivery figures in the first half of 2022, despite a number of challenges. Overall, the sports car manufacturer delivered 145,860 vehicles to customers around the world between January and June, a decline of 5 per cent over the previous year. “We and our dealers have successfully navigated a first half-year shaped by external factors and uncertainties,” says Detlev von Platen, Board Member for Sales and Marketing at Porsche AG. “In addition to the difficulties posed by the resurgence of the COVID pandemic in China and other markets, ongoing supply-chain- and logistics-related challenges have accompanied us. At the same time, the desirability of our brand and popularity of our products remains strong. We expect the second half-year to be dynamic. As in previous years, we are optimistic about the future and determined to go full steam ahead with the remaining months of the year.”
Demand remains particularly high for SUV models. A total of 41,947 customers took delivery of a Cayenne. In second place was the Macan, with 38,039 deliveries. The sports car icon, the 911, was delivered to 21,616 customers worldwide. The Taycan was handed to 18,877 customers – despite production limitations due to supply-chain bottlenecks, which particularly impacted the all-electric Porsche. The Panamera was delivered 15,604 times, while 9,777 examples of the 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman models went out to customers.
“We are now into the third quarter full of energy and optimism and, in addition to deliveries, we continue to focus on unique brand experiences for our customers,” adds von Platen.
