ATLANTA--April 1, 2014: 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 March sales of 3,808 vehicles. This compares to 3,486 vehicles sold in March of 2013, an increase of over nine percent and a new high for that month. For the year so far, PCNA has delivered 10,136 vehicles versus 9,650 during the same period last year, an increase of five percent and the first time that the company has topped the 10,000 mark in a first quarter.

While mid-engine sports cars and the Panamera both bettered last year's numbers with 617 and 442 sold respectively, two of the newest models were the highlights of a remarkable sales performance in March. With 281 units sold the top-of-the-line 911 Turbo and Turbo S contributed over one-third of all 911 sales. The gas and diesel versions of the brand new Platinum Edition met with unanimous approval from customers and recorded over two-thirds of the ever popular Cayenne model line of 1,862 units sold.

Porsche Approved Certified Pre-Owned vehicle sales in the U.S. were 998 for March 2014.
