If Porsche has gone so 'soft' as people here are saying, why are they continuing to sell cars. Most new Porsche owners have owned one or several Porsches before they fork out for a new one. Why would you by a new Porsche if your old one was better. It is'nt, that's why they are selling like hot cakes here in Oz. An excerpt from a local car mag;

"Local enthusiasts' penchant for the upper-level variants of the 911 is significantly stronger than overseas markets. In addition to the GT2 -- which costs more than double the standard 911 Carrera -- Aussie 911 shoppers have been quick to opt for the $300K-plus Turbo and GT3-RS models. The $250K-plus GT3 is also a favourite".

According to PCA's Sales and Marketing chief, Kevin Nichols, Australians are increasingly gravitating to top line 911s. Last year Porsche sold more than 520 911s Down Under and over 40 per cent of them were the 'premium' variants listed above.

"Australia has a remarkable percentage of high-end [911] models. At 42 per cent it's one of the highest in the world".
