With 117,963 new vehicle deliveries worldwide, Porsche is 3% up in the first half of 2016 year on year.

This growth is being driven by the Cayman and Boxster. The sales regions of the US (+6%) and China (+4%) have seen a slight increase.

Detlev von Platen, sales and marketing, chief said the high levels achieved in the previous year also formed the objective for 2016.

"In 2016, consolidating our sales markets will be of primary importance. With the US, China and Europe as strong sales regions, Porsche is in a very strong position for the future and is to a large extent independent of the volatility of individual markets."

The Macan achieved an increase of 11% with a total of 45,086 new vehicle deliveries, 911 sales were 18,579 vehicles (+10%).

The strongest individual market in the first half of 2016 was once again China: with 30,440 new vehicle deliveries, above that of the US (26,708). Europe sales grew by 5% to 40,646 new vehicles. The German market saw an increase of 2%, with 15,299 new vehicle deliveries.
