BRIEFLY

September 30, 1987

West German auto maker Porsche AG, suffering from faltering world sales, said it will concentrate on its top range 911 and 928 models in the vital U.S. market. Porsche said sales in the year to Aug. 1, 1987, slipped to $1.85 billion from $1.95 billion the year before, at current exchange rates. A spokesman said Porsche planned to cut production of its low-end 924 and 944 models to 100 a day from 134 but to boost production of its classic six-cylinder 911, which is undergoing a face lift. The 911 starts at $70,600, compared to $27,000 for the cheapest Porsche model, the 924S.
