Porsche shared that despite global challenges the company remains to be on the track. Deputy Chairman and Member of the Executive Board responsible for Finance and IT at Porsche AG Lutz Meschke said “In the first quarter, Porsche benefited in particular from a strong sales mix, disproportionate growth in the other business segments and positive currency effects. Due to many external challenges that we cannot influence, it is difficult to provide an outlook. Nevertheless, we are aiming for a return on sales of at least 15 per cent in the financial year 2022."
