GLS and GLE are doing well for vehicles at the end of the life cycle.  I am surprised the GLC isn't doing more damage in the lower end, it is a far superior product than the majority of $40-50k crossovers.

And the sedans are still selling, something most others can't say.

      Porsche Reports October 2018 U.S. Sales
      Another record month puts Porsche ahead 3.2 percent for first 10 months of the year ATLANTA, Nov. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Porsche Cars North America, Inc. (PCNA), importer and distributor of the Porsche 911, 718 Boxster and Cayman, Panamera, Cayenne, and Macan model lines, today announced October retail sales of 4,817 vehicles. This was 2.2 percent higher year-over-year and an all-time October record. For the first 10 months of 2018, U.S. retail sales were up 3.2 percent compared to the same period last year, totaling 47,443.
      October sales were driven principally by three model lines. Deliveries of the iconic Porsche 911 increased 14.2 percent year-over-year. The Macan was up 9.9 percent and the Cayenne, with the new generation now in showrooms, rose 1.1 percent.
      "Porsche is having an exciting year as we find new ways to connect with customers," said Klaus Zellmer, President and CEO of PCNA. "Whether it is the powerful new Cayenne or the expanded selection of enthusiast-focused 911 variants, we are thrilled that more drivers and their families want to add a Porsche crest to their lives."

      A new report from Automobile Magazine says that smart is living on borrow time and could disappear by 2026 at the earliest.
      According to various sources, Renault will be pulling out of partnership when the current Twingo/ForFour ends production. The two models share the same architecture in an effort to save costs. Without a partner, Mercedes-Benz isn't as keen to keep smart around.
      A key question is whether or not Mercedes-Benz will produce a new model with a three-pointed star to compete against the likes of the Mini Cooper and Audi A1. A decision by the board needs to happen by 2021 when it must sign off the next-generation A-class, Why? That's because the new model will use the same platform as the next-generation A-Class. Automobile says the platform will replace the current MFA2 and allow for a "fully scalable, all-new convergence layout" - thus allowing an even smaller vehicle.
      But there is a possible twist. Chinese automaker Geely owns a 9.7 percent stake in Daimler, and could become a replacement partner if a business case could be made for an electrified brand.
