Luxury car company Porsche, founded in 1948, made more than 4.22 billion euros in profit before taxes in 2017, according to its annual report. Based on the Nov. 8 exchange rate, that’s more than $4.82 billion.
Divide that yearly number into seconds and the company made an average of just under $153 every second.
It’s also an average of more than $9,176 every minute, nearly $550,595 every hour, more than $13.2 million every day and nearly $92.8 million every week.
Putting the numbers into perspective, every six seconds, Porsche made an average of just more than $917 in profit before taxes in 2017. That’s more than the median weekly earnings in the U.S. for wage and salary workers in the third quarter of 2018, which was $887 a week, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
When it comes to revenue, Porsche brought in 23.49 billion euros in 2017, which is more than $26.85 billion (using Nov. 8 rates). That translates to an average of nearly $73.6 million a day.
