New Jobs Created Once Again
Stuttgart. Porsche Automobil Holding SE, Stuttgart, has not gone unscathed by the severe slump of the economy in the world market in the year of business 2008/2009 (to July 31). As the company announced on Tuesday at the Frankfurt Motor Show IAA in providing an initial overview of the business year that has just ended, the expected car sales by its subsidiary Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, dropped 24 per cent to approximately 75.200 units. In comparison, revenues were down by only 12 per cent to an estimated amount of Euro 6.6 billion. In the words of Michael Macht, Executive Board Member of Porsche SE and Chief Executive Officer of Porsche AG, this should mark the lowest point in the slump: “Although the next few months will remain difficult, we are moderately optimistic for calendar 2010”, he stated in Frankfurt.

ATLANTA, September 15, 2009 – Speaking publicly for the first time at the Frankfurt Auto Show, Porsche’s new president and CEO, Michael Macht, revealed that Porsche is considering and working hard on an electric-powered sports car that would meet the high demands of the Porsche brand.
