Porsche is having itself a year. Today the company announced that its overall sales are up 13 percent globally in quarter three, with a whopping 217,198 vehicles sold in 2021 so far. The US saw the biggest jump, improving by 30 percent, while China and Germany followed just behind that with gains of 11 and nine percent, respectively.
While those sales figures alone are impressive, Porsche’s overall success this year isn’t the brand’s biggest news. If you look closely at those sales figures, you’ll find that Porsche’s highly regarded EV, the Taycan, is actually outselling some of the company’s bread-and-butter vehicles.
Porsche moved 28,640 examples of the Taycan this year, compared to 27,972 versions of the 911, and 20,275 Panamera models in the same period. And that’s with the 911 seeing an improvement of 10 percent over the previous year, and the Panamera gaining by one percent.
