Stuttgart. Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, was able to continue its positive sales trends on the US market in February 2010. With 1,531 vehicles delivered to US customers, sales are 1.5 % above February 2009's figures. Thus, for the sixth consecutive time in the current fiscal year, Porsche was able to increase deliveries even though the severe winter weather on the US East Coast, the most important region for Porsche, did little to bring customers into the showrooms.
In February, 409 Gran Turismo Panameras were delivered to customers in the USA. Especially good news to report is that sales of the sporty Cayenne SUV, with 599 models sold, was 35 % higher than February 2009's figures. Sales of the Boxster models, to which the Cayman also belongs, fell 64 % compared to the same period last year with 184 units delivered to customers. Lastly, the sales figures for the 911 models were 39 % lower than February 2009 with 339 sports cars sold.
