After the first 9 months of 2021, the number of Taycan cars delivered to customers is 28,640 units, nearly 700 cars higher than the legendary 911.
Specifically, the German automaker sold 27,972 911 units, up 10% over the same period last year. Other Porsche models also grew in the first nine months of the year. Panamera reached 20,275 units, 718 sold 15,916 units including two versions 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman, all increased by about 1% compared to last year.
Porsche says it delivered 217,198 vehicles worldwide in the first three quarters of the year, up 13% year-on-year. Taycan alone grew 3 times.
The biggest contributor to the sports car company’s sales in Stuttgart are SUVs. Cayenne sold the most with 62,541 vehicles, down 2.8% over the same period in 2020, followed by Macan 61,944 vehicles (up 12% over the same period).
Those numbers suggest Porsche has recovered in sales, following the 5% drop it experienced during the first nine months of 2020.
The majority of Porsche’s sales are internal combustion engines, but the success of the Taycan could boost its electric vehicle business. Porsche plans to introduce an all-electric version of the Macan in 2023.
