Cayenne sales rise for January
but Economic crisis continues to hamper the automobile market in
Stuttgart - January 2009 saw Dr.
Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, continue to move in a
difficult market environment in the USA and Canada. At 1,746
vehicles, the number of deliveries to customers in North America
was 36 percent lower than the previous year, with 1,658 vehicles
going to the USA and 88 units to Canada. The Cayenne SUVs
performed the most positively in January 2009, with sales of
1,010 vehicles. This turnover is more or less the equivalent of
that of the previous year and if compared to the previous month,
actually represents an increase of ten percent.
462 units of the 911 Series were
delivered. This drop of 46 percent makes it abundantly clear
that the North American automobile market continues to suffer
under weak demand as a result of the economic downturn –
something Porsche is unable to avoid.
