ATLANTA, September 1, 2010 -- Porsche Cars North America, Inc. (PCNA), importer and distributor of Porsche sports cars, Cayenne SUVs and the Panamera Gran Turismo line-up in the United States, today announced August sales in the U.S. of 2,032 units compared to the same period last year when it sold 1,526, up 33 percent.

 

 Most noteworthy for the month were the results for Porsche’s new-generation 2011 Cayenne S and Cayenne Turbo, which regained their volume lead by posting sales of 775, compared to last year when sales were 509, an increase of 52 percent. The Cayenne achieved these results despite the fact that the 2011 Cayenne and Cayenne S Hybrid are yet to join Porsche’s SUV line-up. Both will come to the U.S. market later this month.

 

 Also notable was the continuing strong performance of Porsche’s four-door Panamera Gran Turismo with sales of 627. This new model line for Porsche went on sale last October, and its three eight-cylinder models were joined by two six-cylinder versions last month.

 So far in 2010, Porsche’s overall year-to-date sales are 15,719 versus last year when they were 12,729, an increase of 23 percent.

 

 For the month, Porsche’s Approved Certified Pre-Owned vehicle sales were 609, compared to 567 for the same period last year.
