PCNA delivers 3,700 vehicles in June

ATLANTA--July 2, 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 June 2013 sales of 3,700 vehicles, marking the best June in company history. During the first half of 2013, PCNA has delivered 21,309 vehicles in the U.S., for an increase of 30 percent over last year (16,450) – which was a record-setting year.

The Cayenne line experienced the most growth, with sales up 77 percent over June 2012. The Diesel and GTS models together accounted for 42 percent of overall Cayenne sales. The recently-launched Boxster and Cayman models also had strong months with 811 units sold – up 66 percent compared to last year.

"This first half of the year has been impressive on a number of fronts," said Detlev von Platen, President and CEO, Porsche Cars North America, Inc. "Along with experiencing record-setting deliveries, we were also recently recognized as the top brand in the annual J.D. Power Initial Quality Study, with our 911 and Boxster models ranking highest in their individual segments. In the context of an improving economy, we're encouraged to continue this momentum with a persistent cadence of new model launches this year."

Sales of the flagship 911 line are up 10 percent during the model's 50th-anniversary year, as Porsche anticipates the launch of the recently-announced 50th Anniversary edition, and the Turbo, Turbo S and GT3 variants this fall. Inventory of the Panamera line is still extremely low, with the refreshed 2014 line just months away from launch.
