According to the company, the New York Auto Show is significant for it, as the U.S. continues to be the automaker’s largest market.
Last year, 35,043 new Porsche vehicles were sold in the U.S., representing a 21 percent increase over 2012.
To date, Porsche Cars North America’s 2013 sales are up 31 percent over the same period last year, says the company.
