German manufacturer Porsche vehicles has reported a boost in sales in the United States over the past 12 months.
Porsche Cars North America Inc. (PCNA), who are the United States’ importer and distributor of Porsche models such as the 911, the Boxster and the Macan, have announced a remarkable 10.7% increase in the total number of Porsche vehicles being bought in the country, in the period between October 2015 and October 2016.
44,752 Porsches were sold in that time, up by over 1,000 on the figure filed last autumn. In the month of October alone, consumers bought 4,506 cars, up on the 4,070 sales made in the same month in 2015.
This impressive boost in vehicle sales could be down to growing consumer confidence, embodied in the recent surge in sales of the Macan. In October of this year, exactly 2,120 sales of the Macan were secured. Compare this to the much lower, and less impressive, number of 908 Macan sales made in the same month last year.
President and Chief Executive of the PNCA, Klaus Zellmer commented on the increase in sales, stating ‘I am confident that we [at Porsche] will finish the year strong.’
With the upcoming grand opening of the Porsche Experience Centre in Los Angeles and the launch of retail deliveries of the 718 Cayman models, sales of the Porsche are surely set to continue on the steady incline.
