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.

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.

      Porsche was planning to do a plug-in hybrid variant of the next-generation 911, but it seems those plans have been scrapped.
      August Achleitner, head of 718 and 911 development revealed to Car and Driver revealed that plug-in 911 project was canceled last year. Two issues ultimately brought the downfall to this project. First was the plug-in hybrid 911 wouldn't have the same driving dynamics as the standard 911 due to additional weight brought on by the hybrid components. Second is Porsche would not be able to make the same profit margins as they do on other 911 models.
      “In the end, the disadvantages outweighed the advantages,” said Achleitner.

      You would think the stigma of the diesel emission scandal would keep people away from picking up a fixed Volkswagen TDI model, but you would be wrong.
      Reuters notes that in April, 12 percent of Volkswagen's sales were for TDI models (about 3,196 vehicles). This is quite impressive when you take into consideration that Volkswagen was only given the go-ahead to sell TDI models with the fix back in mid-April.
      But we have to wonder if this percentage would be the same if Volkswagen didn't put some enticing incentives on TDI vehicles. As we reported last month, Volkswagen is offering either 0% APR for up to 72 months and $5,000 cash bonus if you decide to buy or an $8,500 cash bonus if you lease.

      Tesla held their first quarter earnings call yesterday. The company reported revenue in the quarter that more than doubled and that they are on track on getting the Model 3 in production in July. But this was overshadowed by some comments made by CEO Elon Musk.
      "We have seen some impact of Model S orders as a function of people being confused" that Model 3 is the upgrade to Model S, Musk said on a conference call.
      Yes, it seems some of Tesla's prospective buyers believe the new Model 3 - the upcoming entry-level model - is the replacement for the Model S. This misconception has likely risen as Tesla has been promoting this vehicle since last July. Tesla's worry is that this misconception will draw people away from the Model S.
      "We want to be super clear that Model 3 is not version three of our car. Model 3 is essentially a smaller, more affordable version of the Model S with fewer features," said Musk.
      "The Model S will be better than Model 3. As it should be, as it's a more expensive car."
      Sadly, customer deposits in the first quarter don't reflect that. Deposits on the Model S and X dropped 7 percent.
