More Porsche Models Find A New Home

Here at Bert Smith Porsche, we take pride in matching the perfect new Porsche model with drivers from all over Florida including Tampa, Sarasota, St. Petersburg and Clearwater. We are witness to the joy of a Porsche being driven from our showroom and to the homes of Porsche enthusiasts.

However, it's nice to take a broader view sometimes and see how our favorite Stuttgart automaker is doing across the globe. We also get to see if there are as many Porsche aficionados in other parts of the world. It seems we are not alone and the Porsche family continues to grow strong as recent sales reports confirm a rising demand for Porsche products.

Porsche posted an impressive 21.1% increase in quarter one deliveries as compared to the same period in 2012. Getting more granular, that's 37,009 new Porsche models delivered between January and March. The month of March was particularly strong for Porsche, with 14,000 units delivered - a company first!

"The success of the first quarter encourages us to implement our Strategy 2018 systematically," says Bernhard Maier, Member of the Executive Board Sales and Marketing of Porsche AG. "Our responses to the uncertainties on the market are products that induce great enthusiasm in customers, such as the new Panamera as well as a highly motivated workforce." 1

Models such as the Boxster, Cayman and perennial favorite 911 made the biggest impact in getting these luxury vehicles into the hands of drivers. The Panamera contributed to overall sales numbers as well, but we are very excited to test out the new plug-in hybrid variant, another first for Porsche and luxury-class vehicles. The hybrid Panamera recently debuted in Shangai, China at the country's auto show.

Like a Porsche moving on the open highway, this company is showing no signs of slowing down. If you've yet to check out all this iconic brand has to offer, then we kindly encourage you to do so by test driving one of the many new Porsche models available here at 3800 34th Street North in Saint Petersburg, FL.
