thats obvious... the only other options there are pure sports cars and the sole sort of sedan, the panamera which is over 100k...

I wonder if the total sales figure actually corresponds to total vehicles delivered. Im guessing it does? But with all these deals inked on paper without the cars actually arriving on time makes me wonder

Yeah I disagree. There just were not many 3s on lots throughout the year. Only recently has my dealer had some on the showroom.

In 2021 Porsche sold 9.9K 911 and 718 combined. During the same period, they also sold 31K Cayenne and Macans combined.

No surprise at all and instead prescient reading of the market and consumer preferences by the OEMs. Of course, awesome products as well.

And I would say the latest X5 looks great and is well-priced.

Any issues with the X3 LCI? Even with the reasons above, it's a surprise to see X3 sales off as they are.

X5 is simply a nearly perfect design for the target customer segment. One could only imagine the sales uplift if iX were X5 electrified instead.

the x3's were somehow harder to find during this year and the m40i allocations were like M cars almost...

Porsche sales up 20+%, BMWs down.

Grill designs on the 4 series and M3/4s sending loyal customers away and relying on AMG refugees to compensate for the departures. Over the next 12 months our two car perpetual BMW garage will transition to P cars for the first time in 2 decades (+ the M2 CS). Overall, these results dont surprise me. You cant absorb that much design repulsion and not see it affect your overall performance.

In my circle of friends that is on the spot
2 guys left their fat C63s and went with G80s
While the other 4 plus myself left BMW completely and went to other platforms
That is a negative net of 3

Has Porsche released their results? And this is just NA sales numbers. Are you speaking to NA or global? And Porsche has much smaller overall volume. And they had a ton of pent-up demand because of their supply chain issues. BMW navigated through this past few years much better.

Very insightful observation.

Large global corporations operate on 4 year cycles.

Years 1 and 2: product development, market positioning
Year 3: “we are right even if customers vote with their currency of choice to select another product”
Year 4: “it’s time to return to our roots” (read: financial results are unsurprisingly lackluster); new decision makers replace old decision makers

This applies of course only to products where customers' embrace is less than enthusiastic.

Completely false and too generalized.

This G8x will be vastly higher sales relative to any previous generation. Porsche is selling more taycans and SUVs, not significantly more 911s and 718s. The m3/m4 is not losing market share.

The quote of a 20+% Porsche sales increase is fake news and false. Porsche has not released their Q4 numbers yet. As of Q3, they were lagging 4.9% from 2021.

I'm curious what Porsche numbers are. Maybe SUV sales are through the roof, but you can't even buy a 911/718/Taycan without being on a "list" for a year or two or three. I can't understand how their sales numbers for those models could be good.

BMW seems to be holding up better. Afaik, you can buy most models in a more reasonable amount of time, although it seems like they are selling everything they can produce. So it's very difficult to say that any sales drop is due to model changes, LCI, design choices, etc.

Check the link in my post; it has the model breakdown through Q3.

Should have said Australian results - where P sales are up over 25% and BMW down over 8%. NA a different market no doubt.

Exactly. The 2022 numbers will be interesting.

In 2021 BMW sold >2.2m vehicles, and Porsche sold about 0.3m (off the top of my head). 911s are about 10k/yr in the US and 35k globally (if memory serves). Overall the M division sells about 60% of Porsche total volume. Its not even close when it comes to M3/4 sales and 911/718. Porsche plays the exclusive, overpriced game. But this nonsense about Porsche replacing M cars is just that- nonsense.
