The sports car manufacturer Porsche, has been voted the best European car brand. This is borne out by the current Vehicle Dependability Study 2012 (VDS) unveiled today by the prestigious US market research Institute J.D. Power and Associates. The study focuses on the vehicles’ long-term quality in the US market. It was based on a poll of more than 31,000 American motorists who have owned their 2009 model year vehicles for three years.
The Porsche 911 – the world-famous icon from the main plant in Zuffenhausen – is the best vehicle in its segment. The European car plants’ review also gave top slot to the Porsche production plant in Stuttgart for the long term quality of its sports cars. And the Porsche brand achieved its best score in the VDS for freedom from errors. That makes the overall result for long term quality the best score yet awarded by J.D. Power.
