October - December

Porsche unit sales in North America remain at a high levelConsiderable growth in the first ten months of 2006

Stuttgart. In October 2006, Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, delivered 2,487 vehicles to customers in North American in a very difficult market environment. In October last year, the manufacturer of sporty premium cars sold 2,729 vehicles. The decrease is nine percent. In the first ten months of 2006, Porsche is still on record track. With 30,425 units delivered in the USA and Canada, sales outperformed the previous year by eight percent. This is the highest figure the company has ever achieved in this period in North America.

It is the sports car model series which continues to drive Porsche’s success in the USA and Canada. In October 2006, the Boxster model series accelerated strongly to 875 vehicles (previous year: 571), with the new Cayman and the Cayman S selling 580 units. 736 vehicles
of the 911 were sold; in October last year the comparable figure was 924. Last month, 874 deliveries of the sporty all-terrain Cayenne were made (previous year: 1,208). Here it should be taken into consideration that Porsche still does not boost sales with plant discounts, the decline in the Cayenne sales is due to the stage of the life cycle.
