China is Porsche’s fastest-growing region; hybrids launching this year

Porsche China set another sales record in 2012, delivering a total of 31,205 cars across mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau, realizing a growth rate of 28.2% year-on-year, driven primarily by the sales performance of the Panamera and Cayenne models.

As we look ahead this year, we plan to continue carrying forward our product offensive with the launch of new hybrid vehicles, such as the 918 Spyder, and, of course, our new Macan SUV.

—Helmut Broeker, CEO of Porsche China

Porsche opened 10 new centers in 2012 in Wuxi, Chongqing, Hohhot, Tangshan, Lanzhou, Jinan, Beijing, Hefei, Dalian and Ordos in 2012. A center established in Nantong this January increased the total to 49. Porsche spearheaded the development of emerging local markets within China by opening centers in second and third-tier cities.

Porsche China currently operates 49 Porsche Centres in Mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau.
