Porsche CEO Says 200,000 Sales By 2018 & A New Car Every Year


Automotive News recently caught up with the newly appointed CEO of Porsche AG, Matthias Mueller, and asked him a few questions. The questions ranged from electric Porsche, to yearly sales goals, and even a 550 Spyder successor.

Other questions asked were about the upcoming 997 911 replacement in the fall of this year, as well as a belief that Porsche can see growth of 150,000 sales at around 2015. For reference, Porsche sold around 97,000 cars in 2010. Hopes are to increase 911 production and sales to about 30,000 units per year. One thing Mr. Mueller also mentioned, surprisingly, is that Porsche plans to have a new model roll out each year. That’s both shocking and awesome.

Another interesting this about electrified Porsches… But I can’t give everything away! The most interesting thing to me, however, was the question and answer below:

When asked what his plans were for 2014, Mueller replied,

For 2014, I could imagine a legitimate successor to the Porsche 550 — namely, a small midengine sports car. Actually, I couldn’t imagine a better name for a small roadster like that than the 550. But we’re just in the assessment phase.

    I imagine Porsche will hit its sales targets …The upcoming 928 should be a hit this time around….based off the excellent performance of the Panamera in a sharper looking two door stying package…

    I look forward to seeing that model eventually hit the showrooms and the streets.. I’m not sure about the next generation 911 thats been bandied about on the net…Hard to tell if its actually better looking….

    I like the cayman S and boxster S but very few are actually sold.. Hard to believe that the SUV’s from porsche are leading the sales for the organization… I still suggest practiaclity is over rated…

    JMO and thanks for the writeup!
