Much of the UK Success was down to the release of the new March 15 Plate.

Porsche delivered 20,222 new cars worldwide in March 2015 with an increase of 31.5 per cent year-over-year. Between January and March of this year a total of 51,102 two- and four-door sports cars were handed over to customers – an increase of more than 32 per cent compared to the first quarter 2014.

"In the first quarter we delivered more than 50,000 new cars for the first time, continuing the success of 2014. This signals further solid growth", said Bernhard Maier, Member of the Executive Board Sales and Marketing of Porsche. "The Macan has exceeded all expectations since its launch and we have handed 62,644 vehicles over to customers within the space of just twelve months. Around three quarters of them are new customers and the compact SUV is reaching a younger target group on average in all markets."

Porsche Mission Statement

This quote gets to the heart of everything that makes Porsche what it is, as a brand, as a company and as an automotive manufacturer. It has been our guiding star – for more than 65 years. And it covers all the values that characterise our work and our vehicles. It’s no wonder, therefore, that no-one can describe this better than the person who created the very first sports car to bear the Porsche name: Ferdinand Anton Ernst - or Ferry Porsche, for short.

In the beginning, I looked around and could not find the car I'd been dreaming of: a small, lightweight sports car that uses energy efficiently. So I decided to build it myself.

Ferry Porsche

His dream of the perfect sports car has always driven us – throughout our history. And we get closer to achieving it every day, with every concept, every development and every model. Along the way, we follow a plan, an ideal that unites us all. We refer to it simply as the Porsche Principle. The underlying principle is to always get the most out of everything. From day one, we have strived to translate performance into speed – and success – in the most intelligent way possible. It's no longer all about horsepower, but more ideas per horsepower. This principle originates on the race track and is embodied in every single one of our cars. We call it "Intelligent Performance".
