Platen evaluated the results as follows: "We are very pleased with this powerful beginning. We hope that by 2018 we will stabilize the high level we reached last year. Being privileged for the Porsche brand is more important than just growing up. With the exception of the development, production and sale of premium sports cars, Porsche is increasingly focusing on electrification, digitalization and connectivity. This year we will also be offering new products and services designed to excite our customers and fans all over the world. The success of our hybrid models has shown us that we can successfully apply the Porsche brand-specific values ​​to this new engine technology. "
