PCNA announced sales figures for US today. Given the recent introduction of the all new 911, it's not surprising that the numbers show an increase in overall sales and a large leap in 911 sales. Total Porsches delievered in February 2012 rose 6.4% over the same period last year to 2149 vehicles.
"We are extremely pleased with our February results, although we are still in the initial stage of launching the new-generation 911 and are awaiting the arrival of the all-new Boxster, which has its world premiere at next week's Geneva Motor Show," said President and CEO, Detlev von Platen. "We are confident that we can turn up our sales momentum a notch or two in the coming months."
Porsche's 911 sales numbers increased more than 111 percent to 858 units vs. 405 a year ago. While the Panamera's increase wasn't as impressive, 16.6% is nothing to sneeze at. Porsche delivered 511 four dour units as compared to 442 last year.
What might come as a surprise to some and not so much to those looking for one, sales of the Porsche Cayenne dropped nearly 30% to 659 units vs. 936 in February of last year. The drop in sales is being blamed on "limited supply and low dealer inventory". What's not explained is why this is the case; that's a story for another post...
