A new study has found that German sports car maker Porsche earns an incredible average of $28,000 in profit on every vehicle it sells. The figure -- printed in Germany's Welt am Sonntag newspaper, citing a study by B&D Forecast -- dwarfs the per-car earnings of virtually any other automaker.

Comparatively, luxury and sports car maker BMW makes about $3,200 per car. Audi nets a less impressive $1,580, and Chrysler and Volkswagen earn just $900 and $400, respectively.

Porsche's overall earnings for 2006 were $2.7 billion. Overall sales totaled 96,794 vehicles.
