PCNA delivers 4,032 vehicles in April

ATLANTA--May 1, 2013: Porsche Cars North America, Inc. (PCNA), importer and distributor of Porsche sports cars, Cayenne SUVs and the Panamera four-door sports sedan line-up in the United States, today announced April 2013 sales of 4,032 vehicles, marking the highest sales month in PCNA history. This compares to 3,437 vehicles sold in April 2012, an increase of 17 percent. For the year, PCNA has delivered 13,681 vehicles in the U.S., up 29 percent over last year's total (10,596).

Sales of the Cayenne SUV remain strong, up 27 percent compared to April 2012 -- with the Diesel model accounting for 29 percent of overall Cayenne sales. The Boxster/Cayman model line saw an impressive increase as well, with current year-to-date sales (2,252) up more than 350 percent over the same period last year (486).

"This is the first time in history that Porsche has delivered more than 4,000 cars in one month in the United States -- which can mainly be attributed to a very attractive and young model line-up," said Detlev von Platen, President and CEO, Porsche Cars North America, Inc. "We are on track to have another very successful year, as long as the current U.S. economic situation continues to improve."

In addition to strong new car sales, Porsche dealers sold 824 Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) models in April, a five percent increase over last April. For the year, Porsche has sold 3,195 CPO vehicles.
