U.S. Auto Sales: Porsche Sales down 7 percent in November image

Porsche, on Thursday said its U.S. auto sales for the month of November went down 7 percent to 2,255 vehicles. However, year-to-date sales are up 19 percent — 27,189 vehicles this year compared to 22,753 vehicles sold last year.

“Our year-to-date results remain very strong,” said President and CEO, Detlev von Platen.

“For the year, the 911 remains up seven percent, even as we are in the midst of a change-over with our all-new model going on sale early next year.”

This month Porsche’s sole gainer was the Cayenne with 1085 sold compared to the 997 sold last November. The 911 is predictably down as well, with only 395 sold last month as many hold out for the 991, scheduled to hit dealerships early next year.
