Porsche aims to doubles sales of 911 with 2012 model year

Sources within Porsche management say that the company plans on selling 40,000 units a year of the latest 2012 911 sports coupe over the model’s lifecycle. That figure is double when compared to that of 2010.

Last year, Porsche sold 20,000 units of the 911, its flagship model.

If Porsche does end up selling more than 40,000 units of the new 2012 911 Carrera – that will make it the ‘most successful 911 of all time.’

The 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera will hit dealerships in Europe in Dec. and in the United States in March 2012.
