Product Overview

The Porsche 911 has long been the face of the company's product line. Over the years, Porsche has added models priced either above or below the 911, but only the lower-priced models have sold well. Porsche seems to struggle between what an executive calls the "pull of the market" and the "tug of brand equity." This case provides an opportunity for students to analyze the optimal breadth of a product line that will balance sales, profitability, dealer satisfaction, and long-term brand health and customer satisfaction.
