ALERT LUNCH NEW NEW NEW
Well, Sebring ended with a BANG! With just minutes remaining, there was a huge incident taking out the leaders. Absolute chaos as the 3 leading GTP cars of Mathieu Jaminet in the #6 Porsche, Filipe Albuquerque in the #10 Acusa and Felipe Nasr in the #7 Porsche all come together while battling for the win during the final states of the race. The #7 and #6 Porsche’s were destroyed as well as a Ferrari. The carnage cost $millions. Click here for more.
Porsche CEO Report
Porsche (P911.DE) on Monday issued its global 2022 results, with record revenues driving growth, especially in territories like the U.S. and China.
Porsche’s global revenue for 2022 hit a record $40.22 billion (37.6 billion euros), up 13.6% from a year ago, with operating profit jumping over 27% to $7.27 billion (6.8 billion euros). Overall deliveries of just under 310,000 vehicles and automotive net cash flow also set new records.
Results were driven by strong growth in the U.S, the U.K., and China despite sales dipping slightly there due to COVID-related lockdowns. But the focus for Porsche is still America.
“2022 was a milestone year for Porsche,” Porsche global CEO Oliver Blume said in a roundtable session with North America-based journalists. “In America the Porsche brand is stronger than ever.”
With its focus on crucial regions like the U.S., Porsche is leaning in hard on the luxury side of things for growth, noting that it was just named “the most valuable luxury brand in the world” by consulting firm Brand Finance. This thesis has lead investors to bid up Porsche shares, making it the most valuable European automaker.
This means Porsche will keep producing and evolving its high-end luxury/sports oriented SUVs like the Cayenne and Macan, which are popular in the U.S. and China. So while the Macan EV version is on the way for a 2024 release, so is a Cayenne EV too, coming in the back half of the decade.
On the way to Devil’s Backbone in 2016.
