Australia has held a special place in Porsche’s history since Melbourne entrepreneur Norman Hamilton imported two early 356 models in 1951, making Australia Porsche’s very first right hand drive market and one of its first export territories.
Since those early days, when prevailing import quotas allowed fewer than two Porsches to be sold a year prior to 1954, Australia’s passion for Porsches has grown, with a record 2,813 delivered in 2014 and close to 4,000 expected in 2015.
Porsche in Australia offers the full range of Porsche models: the Boxster roadster, the mid-engined Cayman coupe, the iconic 911, the elegant four-seater / four-door Panamera as well as the sportiest SUVs in their respective segments - the Macan and Cayenne. Porsche is also a leader in plug-in Hybrid technology with the Cayenne and Panamera both sold with Hybrid powertrains.
Underscoring Australia’s respect and love of Porsches, the majority of the approximate 32,000 Porsches delivered from the factory to Australia over the past 65 years are still to be seen on Australian roads.
Porsche Cars Australia is a wholly owned subsidiary of Porsche AG and is represented by 14 Official Porsche Centres throughout Australia.
