Porsche Canada announces Canadian Currency Credit

MISSISSAUGA, ON, April 5 /CNW/ - Two-and-a-half years ago, at a time of US-dollar parity, Porsche was first to market with reduced prices for Canadian buyers. As the Canadian dollar once again flirts with parity, Porsche Cars Canada has introduced a Canadian Currency Credit program to effectively reduce prices. The program is subject to change at anytime.

Canadian Currency Credits are factory-to-dealer credits available on all 2010 Porsche models as well as the new 2011 Boxster Spyder. They are available to qualified retail customers through participating Porsche dealerships whether the customer pays cash, or leases or finances through Porsche Financial Services.

"Canadian Currency Credits address the cross-border price disparity caused by a strengthening Canadian dollar," said Joe Lawrence, Porsche Canada's President and CEO. "In effect, the strong dollar has significantly reduced prices for Canadian Porsche buyers, despite ongoing improvements in equipment and technology on all our products."

"Available across the entire Porsche range through participating dealers, Canadian Currency Credits act as an effective price adjustment during this time when the Canadian dollar is close to US-dollar parity. They are available even on virtually sold-out models like the new 911 GT3 RS," added Lawrence. "Customers are encouraged to contact their local Porsche dealership for the latest information."
