Porsche Cars GB, the German sports car maker’s wholly owned subsidiary, looks set to sell 10,000 new cars in the UK this year. This is almost three times the number sold at the height of the ‘yuppy’ boom in the late 1980s.
‘There’s no mystery about it – it’s all to do with the economy,’ says spokesman Andrew David.
‘We’ve been seeing the longest period of consistent economic growth since the Second World War. It has turned the UK into the most stable market for Porsche in the world.”
Sales in the first seven months of this year are already up nearly one-fifth on a year ago, at 5,641.
