China will become the world's largest market for luxury cars by 2016 after its passes the U.S., according to a new report from McKinsey & Co. The firm sees China's premium car market growing to an annual selling rate of 3M premium cars by 2020. Though China provides an enticing growth opportunity for high-end automobile sellers, the market is also fraught with risk as the government stays involved with many of the joint ventures. Watching the trend: Daimler (DDAIF.PK), BMW (BAMXY.PK), Audi (VLKAY.PK), Acura (TM), Cadillac (GM), Aston Martin, Jaguar Land Rover (TTM), Tesla Motors (TSLA).
