After a rather dismal month of sales in August, Porsche Cars North America, Inc. (PCNA) announced September 2017 sales of 5,059 units. That's an increase of 12.9% over the same period last year and brings year-to-date growth to 2.5% above last year.
Perhaps, more importantly, sports car sales are back on the upswing. Porsche 911 sales reached 532 units, a 14.4% increase over September sales last year. Meanwhile, the 718 Boxster and Cayman model line rose 3.1% from last year to 434 deliveries.
As deliveries of the all new Panamera begin in earnest, Porsche posted even more impressive numbers of 835 deliveries, up 134.6% compared to September 2016. Not to be out done, Macan sales reached an all-time high of 2,346 units, posting an increase of 17.4% year-over-year.
The only fall off came from the Cayenne line. Porsche's original SUV dropped to just 912 deliveries as compared to 1239 last year. However, the drop-off isn't unexpected as most customers will wait to take delivery on the just announced 3rd generation Cayenne.
Porsche Approved Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) vehicle sales in the U.S. reached 1,550 units, a 16.2% increase compared to September 2016. Year-to-date, CPO sales are up 8.2% and stand at 13,553 for the first nine months of 2017.
