The Porsche Macan crossover SUV has been a huge success since it started selling in the US; 7,241 units were sold over an eight month period last year, with plenty of would-be customers placed on 6-month waiting lists.
Automotive News reports that the automaker wants to bring the Porsche Macan waiting period down. Said Porsche North America COO Joe Lawrence: “We’re certainly pushing because it’s been a big success. We’re having some issues with customers having to wait longer than we’d like, and we don’t want to lose those customers.”
The site also reports that 2015 Porsche Macan sales are anticipated to contribute to an early realization of the automaker’s goal to sell 50,000 units here per annum, three years before that threshold was planned to be crossed. Global demand for the Porsche Macan also remains strong, and could help the marque to prematurely achieve its second goal of 200,000 annual global sales.
Last year, Porsche sales in North America climbed 11 percent to 47,000 units. Leadership at the automaker told American dealers that they had targeted steady 10 to 12 percent increases per year, for the next several years.
