Stuttgart. Despite the rather sluggish economy, Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, once again achieved a good sales result in the USA and Canada in May 2008. Out of the total number of vehicles delivered to the region of 3,004 units in the month under report, 2,796 went to the USA and 208 to Canada. While this is a decrease overall in North America of 17 per cent year-on-year, the previous year’s figure was the highest sales figure in May ever achieved by Porsche in North America.
The Cayenne sports utility featuring fuel-saving power units with direct gasoline injection ever since the launch of the second model generation somewhat more than a year ago remained in great customer demand. The particularly dynamic and sporting Cayenne GTS introduced in markets the world over in March 2008 accounted alone for 391 deliveries in May. In all, the Cayenne model series was up in May in the USA and Canada by 4 per cent to 1,244 vehicles delivered.
The 911 accounted for sales of 901 units in North America in May 2008, down by 32 percent from the previous year. Deliveries of the Boxster model series amounted to 859 units, equaling a decrease by 20 per cent year-on-year.
