Taycan becomes Porsche’s best selling car

The all-electric Porsche Taycan, starting price $104K,  became the brand’s best-selling car in the United States in the third quarter. Only the company’s SUV models, the Cayenne and the Macan, sold in higher numbers.

Porsche sold more Taycans in the United States than it did any of the company’s four other car models. A total of 1,858 Taycans were sold between July and September compared to 1,567 Porsche 911s, the company’s next best-selling car model.

The company also sold 1,084 of the 718, a model designation that includes both the Cayman coupe and Boxster convertible sports cars, and 1,064 four-door Panamera sedans.

A Porsche spokesperson would not say if the Taycan’s supremacy among Porsche’s car models could be expected to continue.

“What we have seen so far is demand exceeding supply, which is a very fortunate position to be in,” the spokesperson said in an email. “But keep in mind that sales of individual model lines vary throughout the year and one quarter is always simply a momentary snapshot.”
