Porsche held its own in the USA and Canada in a very
difficult market environment. At 1,841 vehicles, the number of
deliveries to customers in North America lay eleven per cent below last
year’s equivalent figures. The new Cayenne, with its lower-consumption
engines, was particularly successful. Since the second Cayenne
generation was launched on the market one year ago, the sporting
all-terrain vehicle has enjoyed great popularity with customers.
In the month under review, sales of the Cayenne accelerated by 113
per cent to 812 deliveries. Sales of the 911 amounted to 657 vehicles
in the USA and Canada in February 2008, 42 per cent less than one year
previously. The Boxster series achieved 372 deliveries to customers
(minus 34 per cent), with a total of 242 unit sales accounted for by
the Cayman and the Cayman S.
