Porsche sales biased from sports cars

Porsche's latest sales figures reveal a skew away from its sports cars towards the Panamera and Cayenne

Porsche has announced its sales figures for May, and the numbers are pretty revealing about where the largest profits lie in its range.

In total, Porsche sold 67,261 cars between January and May, split fairly equally between the three markets, Europe, America, and Asia/Africa/Middle East. The skew away from sports cars looks set to continue, too, with a sub-£40,000 SUV, the Macan, due in 2014.
