So, 911 and 718 both down from last year. Porsche sells 3 Macan, Panny, Pepper for every one sportscar.

911's will survive; will the Boxster/Cayman?

I read on another Forum that sales of the 718 in Europe and other parts of the world is much stronger than in the U.S. I would be interested to know if this is true.

Yes I get the same impression with demand in the U.K & Europe it seems like they can have upto a 10-12month wait for them based on what I'm reading on another forum. I don't think I could wait that long for one. That could mean less supply or more demand, but by the activity on this other forum I get the impresssion it's more demand.

There are engine displacement taxes in many parts of the world, so the move to 4 cylinder is likely far better received elsewhere than here.

Will 'vettes ever have less than 8 cylinder engines? If so, wait for the howling then!!

From torquenews:
"In March 2017, Ford Motor Company sold 9,120 examples of the mighty Mustang while General Motors sold just 7,052 examples of the Chevrolet Camaro and FCA sold only 6,225 examples of the Dodge Challenger. Mustang sales were down sharply from the 12,563 sold in March 2016, but with 9,120 units sold, that is more than enough to comfortably outsell each of the key competitors in the segment."

Just one small snippet of what could be going on industry-wide. Sounds good for Mustang at first but year over year not so much. Competition is stiff all around. Food for thought.

I came across a recent article on Q1 car sales in general (carsalesbase.com), which provided sales figures in multiple markets including Europe for every individual segment. I took screen shots for the large & small sports car segments relative to the European market. .............................. I took a 300 mile joy ride in my Boxster on Tuesday & during that trip called into my nearest Porsche dealer (120 miles away in any case). I was struck by the number of 718 Boxster's & Cayman's for sale brand new off the showroom floor. Mainly base models but also a few S models as well. Very few examples of any other model were available. It may be nothing, but to me it would suggest that 718's are very easily available when they have the need to fill up empty showroom space................On a footnote, there was a Carmine Red Cayman with gloss black wheels in the showroom, what a combination, it looked absolutely stunning.

52 caymans sold in all of Europe? That's like one per country. Sounds odd. But yet there were 1948 boxter's sold. I would not expect the numbers between the two body styles to be that different. It's in my nature to question everything I read.

I agree the Cayman number looks a bit odd. It does look, however, that sales in Europe are stronger than the previous year and perhaps on track to be more robust than in the U.S.
