For the 11th year in a row the Porsche nameplate received the highest overall score of all brands in the J.D. Power APEAL Study. The study consists of 77 questions asked to vehicle owners 90 days after their purchase.
This was the first year that the Porsche Macan was included in the study and it had a very good debut. Just how good? It was highest ranked in the Compact Premium SUV category. Not a bad way to start.
But it wasn’t just the Macan that lead to the overall highest ranking. The Cayman also had a very good showing in the Study. It ranked highest in the Compact Premium Sporty Car category.
This is the second J.D. Power study that Porsche has lead this year with the nameplate also taking overall honors in J.D. Power’s Initial Quality Study. The brand has consistently ranked very high over the past 11 years, which shows that people that purchase cars from the German performance car maker don’t usually regret it.
Porsche earned 874 points in the study which uses a 1,000-point scale. If you compare this to the rest of the premium industry the average was 841. The overall industry average for the study was 798.
