Prior to June 2013, Porsche USA had never sold fewer than 300 Panameras in a single month. Not even in October 2009, the Panamera’s first month of U.S. availability, did Porsche suffer from such a low-volume Panamera sales performance. 

360  Panameras were sold in October 2009. 248 Panameras were sold in June 2013, a 60% drop. There are only about 600 Panameras in Porsche’s U.S. dealer network inventory, compared with nearly 1100 Audi A8s and more than 1600 Jaguar XJs. 

The updated 2014 Panamera will bring about an uptick in volume, but Porsche isn’t about to start selling the Panamera in S-Class-like numbers.

The category’s top-selling BMW 6-Series is at a serious advantage compared with its similarly-priced sedan rivals: its foundation is as a coupe and convertible. 

One could argue that a more fitting comparison would show the Mercedes-Benz S-Class’s numbers alongside those of its CL-Class coupe sibling (30 of which were sold last month) and, more importantly, the SL-Class roadster. That would bring the Benz total up to 1535 units. believes Tesla sold 1800 copies of its Model S in June; 10,650 in the first half of 2013. Autoblog Green estimates 1633 June sales (9304 year-to-date) for the Tesla. Lincoln sold 906 MKS sedans in June, Cadillac sold 2234 XTS sedans, and Hyundai Equus sales totalled 195.

GCBC isn’t here to break down segments, an impossible task for any group, but to display sales data for the sake of comparison. The more ways sales data can be displayed, the better, right? This explains why you’ll see the 6-Series here but also with premium sports cars… because readers have wanted it both ways. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts. Sales data for brands such as Aston Martin, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lotus, Maybach, Rolls-Royce etc. are unfortunately not broken down by model. estimates say sales for those brands in the first half of 2013 were 414, 972, 276, 132, zero, and 504, respectively.
