Porsche Kicks Off 2019 with Record U.S. Sales
Following a record-setting 2018, the automaker saw impressive sales for January.
Porsche Cars North America, Inc. (PCNA) announced their January sales, and the news was all good. January retail sales climbed 12.5 percent from a year earlier to 5,419. This was an all-time January record, following a record year in 2018.
The new, more powerful Cayenne was a major force in driving sales for the month. And S and Turbo models rounded out the lineup on showroom floors. Deliveries of all three vehicles combined increased 65.1 percent in January year-on-year to total 2,150 sold. Of course, the once and only Porsche 911 also made a great showing, increasing 29.1 percent to 1,101 sold. This, ahead of the much-anticipated arrival of the 2020 Porsche 992 911 coming later this year.
“We are grateful to see the year start strong for our 191 U.S. Porsche dealer partners,” said Klaus Zellmer, President and CEO of PCNA. “After celebrating 70 years of Porsche sports cars last year, this month’s record deliveries show that we are successfully combining our rich heritage with the innovation customers want today.”
Porsche Approved Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) sales in the U.S. totaled 1,562 vehicles in January.
