Porsche Cars North America (PCNA) just released its sales figures of 5,570 vehicles sold in April.

The announcement from Atlanta ballyhooed this news with some understandable excitement, as these numbers represent a new all-time single-month sales record for Porsche in the good ol’ U. S. of A.

This tops the previous record of 5,555 sales units set just this past November 2017.

This April’s figures translate to a 0.7 percent increase over April 2017.  Year-over-year retail sales spanning the four months also trended with even greater upward mobility at 7.0 percent, at 19,524 units.

“The Porsche mix of two and four-door sports cars is getting a broad welcome from customers.  We see this in the strong April demand that crosses model lines,” affirmed Klaus Zellmer, President and CEO of PCNA.  “Our 189 dealers are continually improving the customer experience, and this certainly is an essential factor for our mutual success.”

The 718 Cayman, which increased sales by 67 percent year-over-year, represented the greatest April growth.  The Macan demonstrated its remarkable staying power with gains of 32.5 percent compared to April 2017.

Other model lines manifested their own upward sales trends.  The 911 (+12.1 percent), the new generation Panamera (+71.5 percent), and the 718 Cayman (+67.0 percent) drove up double-digit year-over-year increases since January.

Porsche Approved Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) U.S. sales continued to show consistently respectable numbers:  1,807 vehicles rolled off dealership lots, an uptick of 11.9 percent year-over-year.
