North America posted 86,059 deliveries (+9 percent) to overtake China, as the second most important region for Porsche in 2023. In the USA, Porsche sold 75,415 cars in 2023.

In China, only 79,283 new Porsche cars were sold in 2023 (-15 percent). Porsche blamed the decline here mainly on the ongoing challenging economic situation in the region but car sales in China reached a record 25.8 million cars in 2023.

Porsche Worldwide Sales by Car Model in 2023

The Porsche model with the highest number of deliveries in 2023 was the Cayenne. Examples of the SUV were delivered to 87,553 customers last year (-8 percent). The decline compared to 2022 can be explained by the model change – including the staggered launch of the new generation worldwide since the market launch in April, as well as a software update for the hybrid models to ensure the best possible quality.

The Porsche Macan was delivered to 87,355 customers and thereby remains at the previous year’s level.

The Porsche 911 recorded the largest increase of all model lines in 2023, with an increase of 24 percent. The 911 was delivered to 50,146 customers worldwide. The Taycan also posted double-digit gains, with 40,629 customers taking delivery of their new car (+17 percent).

In the last year of its life cycle, the outgoing generation of the Panamera posted 34,020 deliveries. The new generation of the luxury sedan, which celebrated its premiere in November, will be available to customers from 2024. The 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman models posted 20,518 deliveries (+13 percent).
