China isn’t Porsche’s largest market quite yet (it’s only a matter of time, now they are #3), but China is now officially the world’s largest market for the Porsche Cayenne. Porsche China CEO Helmut Broeker said it himself to Gasgoo. The luxo-SUV is popular with China’s well-heeled and high-ranking military figures.
By 2012, Broeker expects that the Chinese buy more Porsches than the Germans, and that the Cayenne sells more than 10,000 units. Easy for him to say: Last year 7,556 Cayennes changed hands, and China is eagerly awaiting the Cayenne S and the Cayenne Turbo. They’ll sell here for $217,000 for the Cayenne S and for $300,000 for the Turbo. If you want one, get in line, and pay a deposit of $30,000 for the honor of waiting.
