Porsche delivered a record 162,145 vehicles in 2013, made £13k on every vehicle sold

2013 was a good year for many automakers and a very good one for Porsche, which had an operating margin of 18 per cent.

Sales rose 15 per cent to 162,145 vehicles compared to 2012 and operating profit rose 6 per cent to 2.58 billion euro on a revenue of 14.3 billion euro. That means Porsche made 15,911 euro(£13,300) per car in average. That was the best in Volkswagen Group, followed closely by Bentley, which made approximately £12,900 per vehicle.

In the first two months of the year, worldwide deliveries of Porsche vehicles increased by three per cent to 23,286 vehicles.

According to CEO Müller, “this positive trend will intensify in the course of 2014 and the market launch of the Macan in April will further increase the company’s sales.”

In addition to increased revenues and profits, the headcount at Porsche also reached its highest ever level, with an increase of 11 percent to 19,456 employees as of year-end.

Porsche Macan vehicle and we have no doubt it will become the best selling Porsche, taking the total sales in 2014 to an all time record.
