It Happened: Porsche Taycan Outsold 911 In 2021In 2021, Porsche more than doubled electric car sales to 41,296, which is also 13.7% of the total volume.insideevs.com
Everyone, especially in the Taycan owner forums are making a big deal about this, but those Porsche fans who have historically been keeping track of Porsche sales numbers for the past couple decades have already known the 4 door models are consistently produced and sold in greater numbers than their 2 door sports coupes year after year, given the 4 door models are usually more attainable on the cheaper end, more usable and practical on a daily basis for many Porsche customers and often a companion vehicle to their dedicated 2 door sports car.
Also the Taycan has been steadily eating away sales from the increasingly redundant Panamera in their lineup, coupled with the massive EV tax incentives associated with the purchase of the Taycan, especially in the EU, but also modest tax credits for US customers as well.
What is a more cool achievement IMHO is that the Taycan, in all model trims is outselling the Tesla Model S worldwide, in all its respective trims as well, since that was the original benchmark luxury 4 door EV sedan.
