Default BBC reporting on German cars

An article here mainly about Porsche and "potential" post-Brexit price increase due to tariffs: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-47270616
They clearly know a lot about Porsche in the BBC - my bold highlighting....

Quote:
The UK is one of Porsche's biggest markets. The company sold 256,000 cars worldwide last year, with more than 12,500 in Britain.

The company, famous for its red sports cars, makes a range of other models.

...Can't say I've seen too many red Porsches locally...
