Official figures from the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries (FCAI) show Porsche sales increased by 33 per cent in September compared to the same month last year, while Maserati sales more than doubled and deliveries of Ferraris increased by 8.7 per cent.
However, as with the rest of the super-luxury market, all three brands posted sales declines in the year-to-date tally.
Luxury car dealers are hopeful that new, less strict lending requirements will provide a boost to sales in the coming months.
