Porsche expects U.S. retail sales to increase 17 percent over last year, the automaker told dealers at its NADA Show make meeting last week.
Much of that momentum will be powered by Porsche's newest nameplate, the Taycan. Porsche projects U.S. sales of the electric fastback to double this year, dealers were told.
Porsche delivered 4,414 Taycans last year, a number that could have been greater had the pandemic not halted production just as U.S.- market Taycans were getting ready to be built.
Dealers asked about the prospect of an all-wheel-drive version of the entry-level Taycan. Porsche executives said they are pushing for the variant but noted it could be at least two years away.
