With more than 80,000 cars delivered, the Macan became the most coveted Porsche already in the first year of full availability. It is closely followed by the Cayenne (73,119 units). Compared with the previous year, the Macan and the Cayenne achieved two-digit growth figures.

Cayman sales rose slightly by 1 percent. The Panamera and Boxster models lagged behind the previous year levels.

The reason for this is the upcoming model change from which Porsche is expecting renewed growth in 2016. In future, the Boxster and Cayman models will be branded as the 718 model series and will continue to merge both technically and optically.

For the first time, the strongest single market in 2015 was China where Porsche delivered 58,009 vehicles. Compared with 2014, this was an increase of 24 percent. In second place came the USA with 51,756 vehicles, a growth of 10 percent.

The European market grew by 24 percent to 75,354 units where Germany is the strongest single market with a total of 28,953 vehicles delivered (+21 percent).
