Porsche sales biased from sports cars

Porsche's latest sales figures reveal a skew away from its sports cars towards the Panamera and Cayenne

Porsche has announced its sales figures for May, and the numbers are pretty revealing about where the largest profits lie in its range. Those opposing the existence of the Panamera and Cayenne (the latter, especially, attracting flak from die-hard Porsche fans) surely can’t argue with the success of the two models.

In total, Porsche sold 67,261 cars between January and May, split fairly equally between the three markets, Europe, America, and Asia/Africa/Middle East. The skew away from sports cars looks set to continue, too, with a sub-£40,000 SUV, the Macan, due in 2014.
