Porsche, Ford post 2012 sales gains

Porsche recently announced that it sold 35,043 vehicles in the United States in 2012, up from 29,023 in 2011.

“2012 was truly a momentous year for Porsche in the U.S.,” said Detlev von Platen, president and CEO, Porsche Cars North America. “Not only did we launch the all-new, seventh-generation 911, the completely redesigned Boxster and our first diesel model, we set records in nearly all aspects of our business, achieving top-tier results in many high-ranking industry quality and customer satisfaction studies while growing our share in the luxury market. Given that we achieved this with only a half-year of sales of the new Boxster and without any Cayman production, we are optimistic about the prospect of another successful year in 2013.”

Von Platen added that the automaker is looking forward to introducing the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S and Cayman in spring 2013.

Porsche wasn’t the only automaker posting sales gains in 2012. Ford reported year-over-year sales gains in 2012, with cars up 5 percent, utilities up 7 percent and trucks up 2 percent.

With pent-up demand expected to continue through the new year, potential auto buyers are expected to head to auto finance companies in high numbers.
