Porsche races ahead with record sales

ICONIC carmaker Porsche has already broken its previous record for annual sales, selling over 10,000 cars more than the whole of last year. A total of 128, 978 vehicles were sold in the 11 months to November, beating the 118, 868 sold in 2011. November sales alone were up 39 per cent on 2011 sales. Demand in China and the US has increased by 70 per cent since last year, helping to make up for falling car sales across Europe. The third-generation Boxster, released at the beginning of this year, has been the most popular international model.
