Porsche, the manufacturer of desirable high-image cars, and still a tiny fish beside its peers, says that its May sales on the global stage rose 12.7 per cent to some 15,020 units. 

Put into perspective, that compares with the dark days of the early 1990s, when the spectacular collapse of Porsche’s US sales brought the company to its knees, leaving its production planners with little choice but to chop full year 1993 production to a mere 13,372 cars.
