In the period of January to November, Porsche has manage to shift 109,709 cars, representing a 24.6 percent increase over the previous year, and 2010’s whole year results have already been broken.

China is now their second biggest market thanks to a 68.8 percent jump in sales, while the US is still number 1 with a rise of 19.5 percent. However, in the domestic market of Germany, Porsche is still well ahead of the market.

In the next few weeks, the new Porsche 911 Carrera will provide an additional impetus."
