    June 2012 - Porsche


    Retail sales up 18% for the month

    Atlanta - July 3, 2012 - 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 2012 sales of 3,002 vehicles. This compares to 2,546 vehicles sold last June, for an increase of 18 percent. For the year, Porsche has sold 16,450 cars in the U.S., a six percent increase over last year's sales of 15,542.

    "June was an exciting month for sports car fans as the all-new Boxster models arrived in Porsche dealerships right at the end of the month and joined the showroom next to the all-new 911 coupe and cabriolet models," said PCNA's President and CEO, Detlev von Platen.

    Porsche sold 464 Boxster models in June (458 of which were the all-new 2013 Boxster) - a 117 percent increase over June 2011. In addition, Porsche sold 861 new 911 models, a 44 percent increase over June 2011.

    Porsche's Approved Certified Pre-Owned vehicle sales were 835 for June 2012. Year-to-date, Porsche has sold 4,856 CPO models, a 12 percent increase versus 2011(4,232).

    I know I am bigger than the type of person who actually buys and fits into a Porsche. But I still do not find the attraction to this car? Yes they have a rich history of racing and their design language is decades old, but for me most of the porsches are just OK looking and the interior I do not find any better than what I have seen on mid level american cars.

    Good thing there are different strokes for each of us as I do not see myself ever buying one and my history is all German, yet I would rather have a MB or BMW or even Audi over a Porsche.

    Some people like sports cars, some don't. Porsches are all about the driving experience...they drive great. I wouldn't mind having a late model Boxster, Cayman or 911 at some point..

    I love a driving experience, but I do not see Porsche bringing anything better than what I have already gotten out of my friends M3 or an amg version of MB. Guess I just do not get the Porsche thing.

    Different strokes indeed...I would love a Cayman, it's perhaps one of my fav. cars on the planet.

    And your right on the interior thing, the Verano has a MUCH nicer interior than the Cayman. Not even close, dude, the GM car blows the German car out of the water IMHO.

    love the Boxster and cayman.... the 911 is sort of bloated to me these days

    Drive one, you'll love it more.

    Almost, almost, almost bought a nice Boxster instead of the MINI Cooper S we just bought....

    If Caymans come down more in price, I could see owning one in a few years.

      There is finally some good news for owners of the 80,000 vehicles equipped with Volkswagen's 3.0L TDI V6. Today in U.S. Federal Court in San Fransisco, District Court Judge Charles Breyer announced that Volkswagen and the U.S. Government have a reached an agreement on the 3.0L TDI settlement. The AFP in a tweet reports the settlement will total $1 billion.
      The agreement will see Volkswagen buying back 20.000 models as they cannot be retrofitted with new parts to make them legal. The remaining 60,000 models will be fixed once Volkswagen and U.S. Government agree on one. No matter which option, there will be compensation, although how much is unknown at this time.
      Breyer admitted during the hearing the two parties still have some issues to hammer out. Another hearing has been scheduled for Thursday for an update.

      Porsche now finds itself under the spotlight of German regulators for possibly using a defeat device on their gas models. German publication Wirtschafts Woche reports that Germany’s Transport Ministry and Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA) were tipped off by people close to Porsche about possible cheating on emissions tests. According to the story, some Porsche vehicles have software that can detect when they are on a dynamometer (or rolling road) based on whether or not there the steering wheel was turned. If this sounds familiar, that's because Audi is accused using something similar on some of their models.
      Porsche has responded to the questions about this and said the software is used detect steering movements is to improve the overall driving experience and not to fool emission tests. In a statement to Bloomberg, Porsche said it is cooperating with the investigation.

      It might not be VW's scandal that kills diesel, it might be Mazda. What if you could get diesel like fuel economy from a gasoline engine and none of the diesel emissions issues? Mazda just might have the solution. HCCI is a type of gas engine that can run in certain situations with the spark plugs off, making for very efficient operation.
