ATLANTA - January 5, 2010: Porsche Cars North America, Inc. (PCNA), importer and distributor of Porsche sports cars, Cayenne SUVs and Panamera Gran Turismos in the United States, today announced December sales in the U.S. of 2,118, essentially on par with the same period last year when it sold 2,154. December’s total was the German automaker’s best monthly retail result of 2009.

“Less than three months on the market, the new Panamera has enjoyed strong sales growth, and our incoming orders for this model are stronger as we enter 2010”

For calendar year 2009, Porsche sold a total of 19,696 new cars in the U.S., down 24 percent from 2008 when it sold 26,035.

Sales of Porsche’s newest entry, the 2009 Panamera Gran Turismo, which went on sale in late October, were 521 for the month.

“Less than three months on the market, the new Panamera has enjoyed strong sales growth, and our incoming orders for this model are stronger as we enter 2010,” said PCNA President and CEO, Detlev von Platen. “From an overall standpoint in 2009, while we were down from the previous year we saw considerable improvement on a year-to-year basis during the second half of the year, and our best-selling sports car, the 911, gained market share over its class. We are increasingly optimistic that we can continue this momentum in 2010.”

For the month, Porsche’s Approved Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) cars enjoyed sales of 477 versus 339 during the same period in 2008. For the year, CPO total sales for 2009 were 6,582 compared to 6,617 in 2008.
