Stuttgart. Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, continued to operate in North America in a difficult market environment in March 2009. With
1,921 vehicles sold, the number of deliveries to customers in North America dropped 27 percent below last year's figures; 1,749 of those units were sold in the USA. The decline in sales illustrates that the US automobile market continues to suffer from a weak economy and low demand. However, the Canadian market saw some improvements in the month under review. The sports car manufacturer was able to increase its sales there by 9 percent to 172 units, compared to March 2008.
In the month under review, 609 units from the 911 series were delivered, 26 percent fewer than in March of last year. Deliveries of the Cayenne series declined by 20 percent to 978 vehicles. Customers in North America purchased 334 units of the mid-engine sports cars Boxster and Cayman; this represents a 42 percent decline.
The comparison of the sales figures with last month indicates the first sign of the situation in the North American market stabilizing: Deliveries in March rose 15 percent above the February figures.
