Porsche Cars North America (PCNA) recently announced its May 2018 Porsche USA sales figures — 5,005 customer deliveries.
This is the second month in a row that Porsche has delivered over 5,000 cars each month. It is also the fifth consecutive monthly record since January, yielding year-over-year growth of 4.2 percent.
When looking at the big picture, this translates to sales increasing by 6.4 percent for the first five months of the year with 24,529 vehicles, compared to last year’s sales of 23,052 units at the same time last year.
“This is a new level of Porsche fascination,” mused Klaus Zellmer, President and CEO of PCNA. “May was the first time our dealers delivered more than 5,000 cars a month for two months in a row, after April’s all-time record of 5,570.
“The story of this year so far is the strong performance across our model lines, from the iconic Porsche 911 and 718 to our new generation Panamera and best-selling Macan.”
Once again, the growth leaders this month were the 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman, with a combined sales growth of 31.8 percent since last month.
The Macan also showed its characteristically consistent growth to date, coming in at 29.5 percent. Not far behind was the latest-generation Panamera, rising by 16.7 percent over May of last year. The iconic 911 grew by 6.7 percent.
Porsche Approved Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) sales stateside amounted to 2,146 units this May 2018, a healthy increase of 37.7 percent year-over-year.
