With a new 911 spearheading their market offensive, and demand for their SUV at an all-time high, Porsche is an automaker with its sights clearly set on the future. According to a recent report from Bloomberg, an unnamed person familiar with the matter has said the Stuttgart automaker will sell 140,000 cars next year.
The figure might seem high considering the relatively exclusive nature of their brand, but it also shows just how mainstream it has become. Last year, they sold 97,000 vehicles, and the official results for the first nine months of 2011 reveal a 31 percent improvement. If this keeps up, they stand to top 120,000 units.

The replacement for the iconic 911 has been revealed in Frankfurt last month and will arrive at dealerships this December. The new Boxster is also part of their growth plan, as it will debut in the early part of 2012.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s.
