Porsche sells 3,096 vehicles in January; Down 8 pct – US

Porsche, the maker of the iconic 911 sports car sold 3,096 new vehicles in January in the U.S., 8 percent less compared to January 2013 when 3,358 units were sold, the German automaker said on Tuesday.

Porsche and not only, blames extreme weather for low sales results.

The shortfall results mainly from inclement weather in major markets and a currently extremely low inventory of its best-selling Cayenne models, which will be ramped up in the coming months.

In January Porsche sold 792 911 models (compared to 877 in January 2013), 600 Boxster/Cayman (compared to 393 last year) and only 1,158 Cayenne SUVs (compared to 1,500 a year ago).

Overall, new car sales in January fell by 3 percent according to data compiled by Reuters – to 1,011,188 million vehicles.

“The bad weather only seemed to affect our competitors’ stores,” teased Chrysler as it reported double-digit sales increases for its Jeep and Ram truck brands.
