Despite the everchanging pandemic-related measures, we have managed to outperform our quarterly sales results of the past 7 years and secured the highest first-quarter order intake in 5 years. This drives our motivation for the coming months. We at Porsche India are incredibly proud of the effort and hard work from our business partners to achieve this result. We must also thank our customers who have remained loyal and helped us achieve this fantastic result to make Porsche India one of the fastest-growing luxury automotive brands across the country in 2021. – Manolito Vujicic, Brand Head for Porsche India
