Yesteray, Porsche Cars North America, Inc. (PCNA), announced May 2015 sales of 4,268 vehicles, slightly more than a 7% decline from the same period last year. This marks the first month in 2015 where Porsche has not bested sales from the same period in the previous years.
Looking through the chart above, the decline can be attributed reduced deliveries in the Macan, Panamera and Boxster/Cayman model line-ups. 911/918 deliveries were almost an exact duplicated of last year at 861 total vs. 864 in the same period during 2014. The only shining star for May was the Cayenne model line. It experienced a strong month with a 7.6% increase, compared to May 2014, for a total of 1,392 units sold.
