Porsche enjoyed a 31-percent rise in global sales around the world for the full six months of 2021 after moving 153,656 vehicles.

In a statement, the Stuttgart-based automotive manufacturer shared that the year-to-date progress spanned all models and sales regions worldwide.

Leading the sales performance for the first half of the year was the Cayenne after delivering 44,050 units to customers, which is 12-percent higher compared to the same period in 2020. The Macan  is in second place after turning over 43,618 units to customers and showing a 27-percent growth.

The all-electric Taycan had a total of 19,822 vehicle deliveries, which is a feat for the automaker since the number is just under the level of 2020 sales as a whole. Sales numbers for the iconic sportscar 911 is just a little over the Taycan’s, as the former sold 20,611 units.

Further, the 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman models exhibited a 33-percent climb in sales January-June 2021 sales versus last year after rolling out 11,922 units to clients and the Panamera, displayed a six percent surge with its 13,633 vehicles sales performance.

Porsche AG Member of the Executive Board for Sales and Marketing Detlev von Platen said that they are “extremely delighted with the high level of demand for our sports cars” claiming that the upsurge in deliveries in the first half of the year is “above that of the overall market.”

 “The rate of electrification is growing in all regions. This development confirms the path that we have taken with our drive strategy. In Europe, around 40 percent of the cars currently being delivered have an electric motor – whether they’re a purely electric vehicle or a plug-in hybrid. Our highest priority continues to be to fulfil our customers’ dreams,” Platen added.


The United States had an upsurge of 50 percent with 36,326 vehicles delivered to customers there. In China, a total of 48,654 new Porsche vehicles were delivered for the full first half of 2021, which is 21-percent more compared to the same period the previous year.

The Asia-Pacific, Africa and the Middle East markets increased by a quarter overall—thanks to the 69,198-unit sales performance. The Porsche Asia-Pacific markets, in particular, achieved an 87-percent growth, with the strong progress attributed to the electric or plug-in hybrid offerings.

Lastly, Porsche Europe sales had sold 40,435 units.

“After an intensive first half year in 2021, we can report a very positive result… Our order books are full. At the same time, we are aware of the uncertainties caused by the Corona pandemic and the semiconductor supply situation. We are continuing to keep a close eye on the overall situation while maintaining our optimistic stance,” Von Platen noted.
