While year to date sales for Porsche Cars North America have increased 2% over the same period last year (helped mainly by a strong month of sales in February), March sales have dropped by 128 units to 2,460 vehicles. This represents a 5% decline in overall deliveries. President and CEO, Detlev von Platen notes that low inventory at PCNA dealers is the main reason for this slow down.
March 2012 Sales Figures for Porsche Cars North America
"We are pleased with our March results, even though they are down slightly from last year, because we are in the midst of the launch of two all-new model lines," said President and CEO, Detlev von Platen. "The new 911 Coupe just went on sale in February and the Cabriolet will be in our dealers' showrooms this month – and we are debuting the all-new Boxster this week at the New York Auto Show. We are keeping up with last year's pace, even as our dealer inventories are extremely low due to these model line changes."
Cayenne sales continue to show strength with a 20% increase over last year to 1,255 deliveries. Panamera sales were nearly exactly the same as last year at 653 cars.
