The key to growth is the Macan. It is very popular and fueling Porsche sales. Now imagine for a moment if Porsche had a sedan that slotted in below the Panamera as the Macan slots in below the Cayenne.
Porsche is expected to continue with expansion although plans are somewhat tempered by the cash flow struggles of the parent group with their diesel scandal.
Either way, Porsche is on a roll in the US that does not appear to be slowing down anytime soon.
