Porsche has managed to achieve an important milestone in the company’s history, hitting the 200,000 mark of vehicles delivered within a year.

Through November this year, Porsche has sold 209,894 vehicles and this represents a major 24% increase compared to the January – November 2014 interval. It’s the first time when the Stuttgart-based firm surpasses the 200,000 threshold and at the same time it managed to beat last year’s record of 189,849 units.

Last month, Porsche shifted a total of 18,110 units and the star among the models was the Cayenne with 6,579 units delivered, up by 39% compared to November 2014. At the same time, the Cayenne is Porsche's best seller through November this year with 68,029 units (up by 14%).

Unsurprisingly, the best single market for Porsche in the January - November interval was China where the VW-owned marque sold 54,302 cars (up by 34%). In second place came United States with 47,891 vehicles (up by 9%). As for the entire European continent, deliveries increased by a significant 30% to a total of 70,509 cars.

This achievement allows Porsche to reach a milestone that was originally planned for 2018. It remains to be seen whether sales will take a hit in light of the recent suspicions concerning the V6 3.0-liter TDI engine in United States.

It’s not actually the biggest news coming from Porsche this month as a few days ago the company green-lighted the Mission E concept. The fully electric sportscar is scheduled to arrive in dealerships around the end of the decade.
