FRANKFURT -- Porsche sold 15,299 vehicles in its domestic market in the fiscal year ending July 31, a rise of 15.7 percent, the company said on Tuesday.
While sales of the smaller, less expensive Boxter dropped 17 percent to 2,779 units, Porsche's core 911 sports car managed to boost sales slightly by 0.3 percent to 6,506, even though buyers may have been tempted to wait for the arrival of the new model on July 17.
Growth came almost entirely from its Cayenne offroader, which recorded deliveries of 5,872 units, a rise of 74 percent vs. a year ago.
But the carmaker's most important market remains North America, where it said this month that sales rose 32 percent to 32,763 units in the past fiscal year.
Porsche has said it aimed to deliver roughly 75,000 vehicles this past year compared with 66,803 in the previous fiscal year.
Late in June, the company said group sales climbed 18.2 percent to 61,496 vehicles worldwide in the first 10 months of its business year.
