PORSCHE SAYS 'KERCHING!'
New model blitz helps Porsche ride out recession
But of course November last year was the moment the new 991 launched, so it's little wonder sales of the 997 were a little stagnant at this point. Likewise the chest beating about a three-fold increase in Boxster sales seems a little cheeky, given that this too is based on an all-new model.
And you don't need to be a market analyst to guess what's really selling, or where. Sales are up in Europe - bucking trends elsewhere in the car market - but they're still soaring in China and America, the overall 128,978 vehicles built trumping 2011's number of 118,868 by some margin and not swelled by sales of 911s of Boxsters. Such is the way of it - at least they're still building them!
