Porsche sales from the inside
I absolutely loved the recent column by Mr Karl Meyer where he offered a historical perspective on the Porsche marketplace. It was fascinating to be reminded of a time when the 996 GT3 RS couldn’t sell – this is a world long since forgotten compared to today’s climate where everybody clambers for any GT car. In Britain people are still paying overs for a right-hand-drive car without Weissach Pack, which I find incredible! Mr Meyer’s insight was wonderfully received, but perhaps he may offer a professional opinion on the future of the marketplace from the perspective of new Porsche cars? I await his wisdom with excitement! Gary abrey We’re pleased Karl’s column suitably resonated, Gary. Karl’s experience of more than ten years from within the hub of a porsche centre means he’s well placed to remind us of a time when the landscape was a little different to what is currently presented when we walk inside a showroom. certainly, the only other time Karl can remember a stop to production was during the annual factory shutdown every august! We’ll try to bring you guest columns from industry specialists all over the world in upcoming issues of the magazine to ensure we’re providing you with a well-rounded look on all things porsche.
