2012 Porsche Panamera Turbo S profile

The Porsche Panamera ran away with nearly 30% of Canada’s large luxury car market in January 2012. Sales of Porsche’s big S-Class-fighting hatchback jumped 124% to 38, more than the Panamera managed in the two preceding months combined.

Officially, Porsche Canada sold one basic Panamera, 15 copies of the Panamera 4, 13 copies of the Panamera 4S, six Panamera Turbos, and a single edition of the Panamera Turbo S in January. 

Becoming Canada’s best-selling large luxury car required sales of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class (and its CL coupe brother) to slide from the 39 units Mercedes sold in January 2011. Indeed, S-Class sales plunged 39% all the way to 24, third in class. Sales of the BMW 7-Series and Jaguar XJ were on the rise, but not to the extent that beating the Panamera was a possibility, certainly not for the Jaguar.

Sales details for large luxury cars and large luxury SUVs are posted after the jump.
