Porsche has always been associated with high performance. So it should be no surprise that the Porsche Business Aircraft and Jet Previews have become the high performance sales events of the industry. Vern Raburn said, “Your shows hold the record for any one day sales of Eclipse jets, beating even Oshkosh!” Cessna representatives say that their follow-up aircraft sales from the shows make the Porsche previews the best events that Cessna attends. Embraer reports phenomenal sales of their Phenom jet at the Porsche shows.
Heather Brant, with Porsche marketing, said, “The emerging light and very light jet markets are a perfect fit for Porsche. Charter and fractional customers, as well as aircraft owners and pilots, are among our primary customers.” She added, “This is the best Porsche promotion in North America, and our dealers are extremely happy.”
