Porsche Cars North America today reported combined sales of all its popular sporty vehicles rose 41 percent in October compared to the same month a year ago.
This brings the total to 3,211 vehicles, about half of which were Cayennes, which saw a 64 percent rise over last year, thanks to the newly launched Cayenne Diesel and Cayenne GTS models. The Boxster also performed extremely well, as demand grew from just 186 units last year to 457 in October 2012.

For the year to date, the company has sold 28,226 cars in the U.S., a 13 percent increase over last October's year-to-date sales of 24,934 units.

"The market continues to be very responsive to our freshest line-up ever," said Detlev von Platen, President and CEO, Porsche Cars North America. "This makes us optimistic to keep this strong momentum for the future. The new Boxster, in particular, has quickly become a segment-leader again, collecting accolades by media outlets and consumers alike."
