I'm thinking of a number. That number is 7,689. No, it's not my credit score; it's the difference between the number of cars Audi sold in China (76,168) and those sold in the US (68,479) from January through September of this year. That, if you were at all wondering, why luxury carmakers made such a big freaking deal about the Shanghai auto show this past year. It's about the growth curve, stoopid. That, of course, is just a figure of speech. [Audi via Wired]
