Default 997 Factory Tour

This was the best 45 minutes I've spent in front of a screen in ages:

Though dumbed down for pop culture, it's a great inside look at the 911 factory while the 997.2 was being built. I want all the 911 variants now. Even more so.

I'll bet the autonomous carts that Porsche designed/patented/built for the factory were a great playground to learn about battery technology...

I'm sure it's been posted before, but it's new to me! Is there a consolidated list of awesome videos like this?

That's a fantastic compilation thread! Thanks for putting in the effort.

I know what I'm reading/watching for the next month

You're welcome. And I just added your factory tour video to it.

If you know of other articles or videos to add, please update that thread.

Thanks.

Karl.

Thanks for posting the YouTube link!

The automated yellow parts carrier robots remind me of those little rolling droids from Star Wars....
