Porsche ranked highest among all nameplates in JD Power and Associates 'initial quality study' out of 33 international automakers covered in the US survey.

This is the best result for Porsche in its company history in this study.

The Porsche 911 and Boxster models ranked highest in their segments, receiving the JD Power Award as the vehicles with the highest level of initial quality in the Midsize Premium Sporty Car and Compact Premium Sporty Car segments, respectively.

This is the second year in a row that the Porsche 911 finished highest in its segment.

The Porsche Panamera sports sedan ranked third in the Large Premium Car segment while the Porsche Cayenne SUV ranked third in the Midsize Premium CUV segment.

“Porsche stands for sportiness and performance,” said Matthias Müller, President and chief executive officer of Dr Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG.

“We are pleased to see that our equally high levels of quality in design, development and production have also been confirmed with these awards,” he said.

The annual 'initial quality study', now in its twenty-seventh year, serves as an industry benchmark for new-vehicle quality measured at 90 days of ownership.

The survey of more than 83 000 American car buyers forms the basis for the study.

These buyers indicated how satisfied they were with the quality of their new cars during the first three months of ownership.

The study evaluated a total of 230 vehicle models from 33 carmakers, which were initially registered between November last year and February.

The owners answered questions on more than 230 criteria from different categories.
