Porsche has been seeing nothing but growth in 2014, according to a press release issued by the company today. The marque has seen a 13 percent increase in overall delivery of cars, which has lead to growth in countless other areas of the company.
“Porsche AG remained on its successful course during the first nine months of the 2014 fiscal year,” the release states, “with deliveries, revenue and profit all going up.” The workforce has also increased in size, growing from 18,882 employees at this point last year to 21,950. All this, and they have still seen a 17 percent increase in revenue to 12.24 billion euros.
When looking at the cars Porsche has released in 2014, however, it’s not terribly surprising to see such high levels of growth. Porsche has unveiled stunning new technologies that only solidify the brand’s role as innovator, and particularly, their attention to hybrid advancements is especially impressive.
“With the Cayenne S E-Hybrid, the Panamera S E-Hybrid and the 918 Spyder, we now already offer three plug-in models, the only brand in the world to do so in the premium segment,” said Matthias Muller, Chairman of the Executive Board at Porsche AG, in the release.
“Despite our high expenditures, for example for the new drive system technologies and expansion investments for Porsche’s sustainable growth, our operating profit is continuing to show year-on-year increase after nine months of 2014,” said Lutz Meschke, Member of the Executive Board – Finance and IT at Porsche AG, in the release. He’s quoted as stating that he believes 2014 will end with a higher operating profit than 2013.
