Porsche unit sales in North America remain
Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart,
sold 3,248 vehicles in North America. Therefore, sales remain
high in spite of continuing poor market environment. In
comparison with the equivalent month of the previous year, when
sales figures recorded in the USA and Canada reached an all-time
high, this figure represents a 10 percent downturn.
The success enjoyed by the manufacturer
of premium sports vehicles is primarily attributable to the
Cayenne and 911 series. In April, 1,075 vehicles of the new
Cayenne were delivered to customers. This is a 9.4 percent
increase on the same period of the previous year and shows that
the new Cayenne generation, launched in March 2007, has met with
an excellent reception in North America.
At 1,307 vehicles, deliveries of the
911 were on approximately the same level of 1,328 units in the
previous year, with demand for the 911 Turbo especially
pleasing. In the first four months of the year, growth of 12.2
percent was recorded for the series as a whole. Of the Boxster
series, 866 vehicles were sold in the USA and Canada, 509 of
which related to the Cayman and the Cayman S. Overall, the
series declined by around 33 percent year-on-year.
