There's no question Porsche had a great year. How great? Well, just ask any of its 11,700 employees how they feel about their $3,900 bonuses. That's right. Porsche will be distributing a total of $45 million in bonuses this year thanks to a banner year where in which it sold 40,000 Cayennes, 24,000 911s and 13,000 Boxters. And with its product lineup expanding, it sure is a good time to be working at Porsche.

      Porsche is forced to deal with one of the most powerful unions, also known as the German government.

      Is Porsche forced to deal with unions? That guy makes a good point, who won the Autoblog ass kissing contest?

      It'a always an admirable thing when big companies are willing to share their profits with the employees who helped make them happen. It seems like too often you hear of companies losing money, taking away overtime from employees but somehow the execs still get big fat bonuses. This is the way to retain good employees to help them keep making phenomenal cars (notice I said cars, the Cayenne is a hellish eyesore even if it does make big $$$).

      Odd, In socal you are seeing less and less 911's and more Boxsters. You head to any of the Porsh dealers and the 911's are scarce, they got Boxsters out the arse though. Of Course the SUV is all over the place.... I can't wait to see if I fit in a Cayman though!

      Hey Guys, Remember that sweet contest that you held where everyone would submit their top 10 favorite stories from autoblog and whoever had the best blog write up would win a brand new iPod Nano? Yeah, what happened to that contest and why can I not find any trace of it in teh autoblog pages anymore? It will be very disappointing to have all those entries and not follow through with your rpomised result. I think you owe the readers who love you guys so dearly a bit of an explanation. Thanks and keep up the great work with the blogging!

      #6, Unions generally have boardroom seats in the big German auto companies. I know it's fashionable in the US to blame Unions for everything that's ever gone wrong in the US manufacturing sector, but here's a dose of reality: Porsche deals with unions, German workers enjoy hours and holidays US workers can only dream of, and yet companies such as BMW and Porsche are merrily eating the lunch of the US auto firms.

      Autoblog announced a contest to win an ipod nano and then apparently reneged. After they received what they said was the expected number of entries, the closed the contest on schedule but then failed to post any updates and has refused to answer inquiries on the topic. When negative comments began to appear on the posting that indicated that the winner would be chosen by then end of the week (that week ending 30 September) they apparently deleted all of the postings related to the contest, as attempting to open any of those postings takes you to their homepage instead. I believe they created this contest in bad faith and wish it would go away. I've posted about it on my blog, so now even if they give it away I'm fairly sure I won't win but I think people should know. http://ghgsatx.blogspot.com/2005/10/autoblog-contest-scam.html

      I see far more Boxters than 911's... i'd never think they produce almost twice as many 911's.
