Porsche has announced all employees are getting a €8,600 bonus after a very profitable 2014.

Fueled by the success of the Macan crossover, Porsche managed to increase sales by approximately 17% last year compared to 2013 by delivering close to 190,000 cars. In addition, turnover jumped by one fifth to almost €17.2 billion while the operating profit went up by a healthy 5% to €2.7 billion.

As a result of this achievement, about 14,600 employees will receive a €8,600 bonus, with adjustments based on working time and if the workers joined the company during 2014. It should be mentioned that €700 of the bonus will be given as a special contribution to the Porsche VarioRente which represents the company's pension scheme or to a private pension fund.
