Porsche has reached its goal of 50,000 units in the U.S. last year even though the automaker had planned to achieve it by 2018. Following this, Porsche is prepared to nab its seventh consecutive year of record sales.
Porsche had managed to do this despite its luxury vehicle facing a decline in sales as well as the Macan and Cayman models which were a result of being replaced or revamped.
Klaus Zellner, Porsche Cars North America CEO, is still positive that this new line would bring about greater results in 2017. He expects that the Panamera, redesigned 911 and 718 Boxster and Cayman to be better next year.
“We are fortunate to have the right product and the right sales organization to detach from the overall decline. Our plan, incorporating the new Panamera that will be out in January in our dealerships, suggests we can have another year of record sales,” stated Zellner.
While the Cayenne is on a decline as it waits for its next-gen model to arrive, the new Panamera should step up to the plate and help continue Porsche’s record sales streak next year.
