Porsche_911_GTS_wins_Auto_Express_Best_Performance_Car_Award_1_July_2015_iiPORSCHE has announced the best half-year financial figures in the company’s history.

It says the past six months have seen new record figures for deliveries, sales revenue and earnings.

The sports car maker delivered 113,984 vehicles in the first six months of the 2015 fiscal year, 30 per cent more than the same period a year ago. Revenue rose 33 per cent to 10.85 billion euros. The operating profit surpassed last year’s figure by 21 per cent and reached 1.70 billion euros. The number of staff also increased by 10 per cent to 23,477 employees.


Matthias Müller, chairman of the Executive board of Porsche AG, said the reason for the success was the ‘especially attractive’ range of Porsche cars.

‘All models and derivatives that we recently launched on the markets have proven to be top sellers,’ he said.

Even in the difficult Chinese market the sales figures of Porsche look good, and Müller added: ‘We have won over many new customers with the new Macan. The SUV is exactly the right model at the right time.’

Porsche is planning to invest more than one billion euros in plants in Zuffenhausen and Weissach by 2020, and another half a billion euros to extend its Leipzig plant.
