FRANKFURT, Dec 3 (Reuters) - German sports car maker Porsche PSHG_p.DE reported North American vehicle sales rose 2 percent to 2,776 units in November thanks entirely to a surge in demand for its refreshed Cayenne sport utility vehicle.
Porsche said on Monday this was the seventh month in a row in which it posted higher year-on-year sales.
While 911-model sales dropped 20 percent to 876 cars and combined Boxster/Cayman sales fell 25 percent to 606 vehicles last month, the company posted an increase in deliveries to U.S. and Canadian customers of 59 percent to 1,294 units for its facelifted Cayenne SUV.
Porsche plans to begin selling its sportier Cayenne GTS starting February. (Reporting by Christiaan Hetzner)
