Stuttgart. In February 2008, Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, held its own in the USA and Canada in a very difficult market environment. At 1,841 vehicles, the number of deliveries to customers in North America lay eleven per cent below last year’s equivalent figures. The new Cayenne, with its lower-consumption engines, was particularly successful. Since the second Cayenne generation was launched on the market one year ago, the sporting all-terrain vehicle has enjoyed great popularity with customers.
In the month under review, sales of the Cayenne accelerated by 113 per cent to 812 deliveries. Sales of the 911 amounted to 657 vehicles in the USA and Canada in February 2008, 42 per cent less than one year previously. The Boxster series achieved 372 deliveries to customers (minus 34 per cent), with a total of 242 unit sales accounted for by the Cayman and the Cayman S.
