A worker checks the bodywork on a new Porsche at the Valmet factory in Uusikaupunki, Finland, population 16,000, which has assembled the cars since 1997. In a sense, Porsche is the only major virtual vehicle manufacturer -- it designs and markets sports cars without actually cranking them all out on its own production line.

2009 in photos (part 2 of 3) The year 2009 is now coming to a close, and it's time to take a look back over the past 12 months through photographs. Historic elections were held in Iran, India and the United States, some wars wound down while others escalated, China turned 60, and the Berlin Wall was remembered 20 years after it came down. Each photo tells its own tale, weaving together into the larger story of 2009. This is a multi-entry story, 120 photographs over three days. Please watch for part 3 tomorrow and have a look back at part 1 from yesterday. (40 photos total) Before the Iranian election, a supporter of main challenger and reformist candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi forms a heart shape with her hands to indicate her support, while wearing green ribbons - the color of the party, amidst a festive atmosphere at an election rally rally in Tehran, Iran, Tuesday, June 9, 2009.

The Fall of Mexico - Magazine In the almost three years since President Felipe Calderón launched a war on drug cartels, border towns in Mexico have turned into halls of mirrors where no one knows who is on which side or what chance remark could get you murdered. Some 14,000 people have been killed in that time—the worst carnage since the Mexican Revolution—and part of the country is effectively under martial law. Is this evidence of a creeping coup by the military? A war between drug cartels? Between the president and his opposition? Or just collateral damage from the (U.S. The Fall of Mexico - Magazine

The faces of foreclosure include Karla Funnell of Elkhart, Ind. “I really miss living at that house, I really want to have that life again,” says Funnell, seen here on Sept. 25 admiring the home she had called hers for 18 years. Laid off from her job, eventually her unemployment benefits ran out and then she lost the home to foreclosure in 2007. After 30 years in the RV industry, Funnell, 52, now delivers pizza part-time and lives in a fifth-wheel camper with her son on her daughter and son-in-law's property. Looking back, Funnell says she might have been able to get a loan from family members had she told them sooner. The faces of foreclosure - Picture Stories The faces of foreclosure - Picture Stories
Mathias Braschler and Monika Fischer on the Environmental Meltdo Mathias Braschler and Monika Fischer on the Environmental Meltdo As world leaders gather for the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen this week (December 7–18), expectations that the summit will produce a hoped-for Kyoto II treaty are cooling just as fast as the climate is heating up. Among the contentious issues are cap-and-trade schemes that allow nations to buy and sell greenhouse gases like Papal indulgences of old, and a rift between wealthy and developing nations over who will shoulder the majority of carbon-emissions cuts. (Optimists take heart; in contrast to the former U.S. president’s outright rejection of both mandatory cuts and the Kyoto Protocol, President Obama is planning a one-day trip to Copenhagen a little over a week after picking up his Nobel Prize in Oslo and is expected to announce U.S. emissions targets.) But if heads of state remain unprepared to declare all-out war on the ecological catastrophe, two Swiss photographers, Mathias Braschler and Monika Fischer, are reconnoitering the ecological battle zone.
