Atlanta-based Porsche posts record vehicle sales in May

Porsche Cars North America, Inc., which is headquartered in Atlanta, announced record auto sales for the month of May.

Officials said the German sports car manufacturer had retail sales of 5,010 vehicles, with overall sales up 2.1 percent for the first five months of this year. To date, the company has sold more than 25,000 vehicles.

“It’s gratifying to see so many people excited by the thrill of driving a Porsche, whether an iconic 911 or one of our four-door models. Every model is the sports car of its segment,” said Klaus Zellmer, president and CEO of Porsche Cars North America. “Our customers should know they can continue to count on Porsche for emotional combustion engines, sporty hybrids, and soon for purely electric power with the new Taycan.”

May’s sales were led by the redesigned Cayenne, which posted an increase of more than 213 percent compared to May 2018. The iconic 911 model was up 1.1 percent year-to-date.
