They’ve successfully closed the third quarter of the year with a slight uptick in deliveries at 2% compared to the same period recorded back in 2021 (217,198 units).

11% rise in Europe
The highest gain was posted by the European market (excluding Germany) with an 11% increase at 42,204 units (38,030 units during the same period in 2021. Germany is not too far behind with a 9% increase, followed by the rest of the world at a 5% increase. Once they’re all added up, the worldwide 2% gain is indeed a sign for celebrations.
As for the 4% drop in the North American market, Porsche has stated that it is due to logistical challenges dating back to the first quarter of 2022. The trend will most likely balance or even surpass the positive territory by year-end.
Porsche Cayenne remains the most popular model
The SUV offerings from Porsche remain their top spots as the brand’s best-selling models, particularly the Cayenne. With a total of 66,769 units delivered so far, the Cayenne is a few steps ahead of the Macan with 59,604 deliveries so far.

That’s a 9% increase and overshadows the Panamera which sits at 25,452 units. The all-electric Taycan is not too far off with 25,073 units delivered despite issues related to supply chain-related bottlenecks and declining parts availability. Last but not least, the 718 duos found 14,003 new homes in the first three quarters of the year.
