While many automakers have seen large declines in their sales in 2021 due to the ongoing chip shortage, Porsche is one automaker that has been able to keep their sales relatively steady.
During the three-month period from July to September, Porsche sold a total of 15,289 vehicles in the US. That is down 1.7% compared to the same time period in 2020 when there were 15,548 new Porsche owners.
Even though the quarterly sales have remained steady, the year-to-date sales have seen a huge 29.9% increase, rising from 39,734 vehicles in 2020 to 51,615 in 2021.
A major reason for that increase is thanks to the all-electric Taycan, which continues to be one of the automaker’s best selling vehicles. In Q3 2021 a total of 1,861 Taycans were delivered, pushing year-to-date sales to 7,228 units, up more than 150% compared to 2020.
It was also enough to outsell the 911 for the second quarter in a row.
