Porsche apparently can't keep up with the demand for the Cayenne so the  German carmaker is reportedly boosting the production of its premium SUV.

According to AutoNews.com, Porsche's production of the Cayenne will go up by 20 percent in 2012 after its sales went up by 37 percent in the first half of 2011.

"We're now looking into ways we can expand production capacity to be able to serve our customers more quickly," Porsche's sales chief Bernhard Maier said in the report.

As much as Porsche wants to keep the waiting time for the Cayenne to be no longer than six months, demand for the premium SUV is reportedly so high that markets like China have to wait for as long as 12 months to get their hands on the vehicle.

In June alone, Porsche sold 4,994 units of the Cayenne to register a 69.2 percent growth when compared to the same period last year. For the first half of 2011, Porsche confirmed that its delivery of the Cayenne almost doubled to 30,055 units compared to the same period in the previous year. With more than 2,000 of the sales being attributed to the Cayenne S Hybrid, Porsche is now said to be the global market leader for hybrid off-road vehicles.
