PCNA showed off their July 2018 sales numbers today, showing yet another month of year-on-year growth. For each month in 2018, Porsche has posted higher sales than they had in the corresponding month of 2017, and that is portrayed in bright light with significantly higher year-to-date sales than last year at this time. While 911 sales were down slightly with news of a coming 992-generation, and Cayenne sales are down pretty significantly, 718, Panamera, and Macan sales were up more than enough to make up for the deficit.
718 model sales are up over 60% compared to last year. Panamera sales were still getting off the ground last year, but are running strong now, contributing to a 15% growth in that model line. The Macan, despite being a five year old model with an already-announced facelift coming later this year, still managed to grow a massive 32% year on year. Porsche's reliance on the Macan model being the strongest in their lineup shows no signs of stopping. In all, Porsche Cars North America sold 4020 vehicles last month, accounting for a 3.1% growth over July 2017.
"Porsche U.S. sales are now up 6.3% for the first seven months of the year to 33,441 vehicles," said Klaus Zellmer, President and CEO of PCNA. "Two forces are at work: healthy demand for Porsche sports cars, and the expert customer experience provided by our 189 U.S. dealers and their thousands of employees."
Porsche Approved Certified Pre-Owned sales in the U.S. totaled 1,749 vehicles in July, up 21% year-over-year.
