Porsche dealers sell 3,562 vehicles
ATLANTA, Nov. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Porsche Cars North America, Inc. (PCNA), importer and distributor of Porsche sports cars, Cayenne SUVs and Panamera four-door sports sedans in the United States, today announced October 2013 sales of 3,562 vehicles, an increase of 11 percent over the same period in 2012. Year-to-date, Porsche has sold 35,111 cars in the U.S., 24 percent ahead of last year's total of 28,226, thus surpassing the entire 2012 sales volume of 35,043.
"Having sold more cars in the first 10 months of this year than the entire total of our 2012 record year is quite a feat, and it is rewarding to see that nearly half of our sales success is carried by our two-door sports cars," said Detlev von Platen, President and CEO, Porsche Cars North America, Inc. "This bodes well for the final two months and is the perfect set-up for the upcoming market introduction of the Panamera S E-Hybrid, the top-of-the-line 911 models, the GT3 and 911 Turbo and, especially, the world premiere of our fifth model line, the Macan, at the Los Angeles Auto Show."
The Cayenne model line continued its strong performance with 1,669 units sold this month (plus 2 percent over last October). For the year, 15,582 Cayenne models have been sold in the U.S. – a year-over-year increase of 30 percent. The 911 model line, which will round out its 50th anniversary celebration this year, impressed with 748 units sold in October, up 27 percent over the same period last year. The Boxster/Cayman mid-engine models, together with the rear-engine 911, account for roughly 40 percent of overall Porsche sales in the U.S. this year.
Porsche Approved Certified Pre-Owned vehicle sales were 883 for October 2013, which brings the year-to-date total to 13,222 units.
