In January 2011, Porsche AG sold 2,400 vehicles in the United States, an increase of 34 percent compared to the deliveries in January 2010. The company said in a statement that Cayenne SUV sales stayed particularly strong, with sales of 1,047 Cayennes, a 77 percent rise from last January 2010.

The Panamera was Porsche's second most popular model in the U.S., with sales of 604 units, an increase of 13 percent in 2011.

Sales of the Boxster and Cayman sports cars rose 97 percent to 313 deliveries, while sales of Porsche 911 models fell 15 percent in January 2011 to 436 units.

Bernhard Maier, Porsche’s board member for sales and marketing, said the company is experiencing an upward trend in the U.S. with the Porsche brand “enjoying” double-digit growth.

After a strong year in 2010, Porsche wants to expand its dealer network into China's interior markets. The company, which presently has 35 Porsche dealerships in mainland China, plans to open 10 dealerships a year.

The Cayenne SUV was Porsche's most popular model in China with sales of 8,351 units in 2010, surpassing demand for the model in the U.S. The company hopes to use China's rapidly growing demand for luxury vehicles and sports cars. [via autonews - sub. required]
