Stuttgart. In April 2005, Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, sold 3,307 vehicles in North America. Although there was a seven percent decline in the number of vehicles shipped in the US and Canada from the 3,545 units in April 2004, Porsche has again generated a high level of sales, producing the second-best sales figures for the month of April in the history of the Company. In particular, the Boxster really took off in North America: its sales increased by 81 percent to 1,026 units – further proof of the Roadster's huge popularity among North American customers.
Sales of the Cayenne declined by 37 percent to 1,146 vehicles. This is primarily due to the basis effect, as an usually high number of the sport utility vehicles, 1,829 units, were shipped to customers in April 2004.
The 911 continued to enjoy strong demand with 1,092 vehicles sold (down four percent). A key factor was the Carrera Cabriolet, which has been available in North America since mid-March. 43 units of the high performance sports car, the Carrera GT, were shipped in April, after twelve vehicles in the same month of the previous year.
