* Personal Factors (Economic Situation); in 1970s and 1980s Porsche considered the people with the lower incomes, so they produced affordable vehicles based on the social class, the status, and the family needs of these customers.

* Psychological Factors (Beliefs and Attitudes); the perception of social need and esteem needs motive customer to the market of cheap sport car with an image of upper class.

Porsche brand developed one's sensing of the self-concept, and the self-image of being successful and wealthy by:
1) Producing very unique and luxurious vehicles.
2) Focusing on the appearance of the vehicles more than the performance.
3) Focusing on designing vehicles that would reinforce the feeling of success, and reflecting the customers' high self-esteem, their roles, and their status.
