Stuttgart. This May, Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, posted its best sales figures so far for the current calendar year on the North American market. In total, 2,140 new cars were delivered to customers, of those 1,979 were purchased in the USA and 161 in Canada. Compared to last year's sales figures, May's figures still represent a decline of almost
29 percent overall, however the number of vehicles sold, compared to April 2009 – the best sales month of the year to date – has increased by about 5 percent. The market development in the USA is responsible for this positive trend where Porsche has been able to increase the monthly sales figures for the third time in a row.
The most popular model in North America is still the Cayenne. The athletic SUV was sold to 918 customers in May; this is about 26 percent less than last year. From the 911 series, 772 cars were sold, which is the equivalent of about a 14 percent decline compared to last year. Deliveries from the Boxster series totaled about 450 units; of those 198 were the Cayman and Cayman S models. Compared to May 2008, this is a drop of almost 48 percent.
