Porsche Leaves Msg for Honda Under Hood of GT-3

Here is the story...

A note to any automakers benchmarking cars built by Porsche: They’ll find you, and they’ll probably leave you goofy messages hidden somewhere in the car. That’s what happened when the 911 GT3 Acura was using to help develop the NSX’s steering went back to the dealer for a recall service.

Per common practice, when Acura bought a 911 GT3 for its test fleet, it did so anonymously, but Porsche saw who it belonged to when the service center accessed the car’s data, according to Automotive News. It was at this point that Porsche decided to have a little bit of fun with its counterparts at Acura.

Read the rest here....

I saw this story today. Good laugh. If it were me writing the note it would have been more along the line of "By the time you find this note we have moved onto the next level" or "Enjoy our creation"
