Old Porsche Picture

Found this picture on the old Interweb....

Porsche 911's assembly line in Stuttgart, Germany in 1970

A truly built by hand car.

I don't see any robotics in this factory...... the age might have something to do with it...

2004 Boxster SE

Some are probably still there

I saw something that BMW employed a lot of aging workforce due to work ethic and skill. Their work area is adjusted accordingly to better fit them ergonomically . From someone who has worked in a supervisory role (until 3 years ago) I can say that a lot of the younger workforce today has an abysmal work ethic.

Back in 1971 my father opened a Porsche/Audi dealership in Ft. Worth Texas. One of first deals made was with 911S sunroof coupe, the trade in for it was a Ferrari 275 GTB4. They gave the customer $8700 for car, OMG should have kept that car! But it was sold to someone in Colorado for about $11K.
That vintage of 911 is worth around $100-200K and up, that Ferrari is $1-2Mil!
We also had 4 low mileage 914/6 on the used car lot that nobody wanted (except me!)! One of them was traded in for a new Audi S90 wagon.....what were they thinking!

Cool picture by the way!

2 years ago (Jan 2015) I put my 1973 1/2 911T on Bring a Trailer's auction. Everyone said I'd get around 40 to 45k When the bidding ended I got $60,000 I bought the car in 2008 for $25,000 and put $4,500 into the car namely a 3.2 Carrera engine. Not a bad return for 7 years of ownership. http://bringatrailer.com/listing/1973-porsche-911t-coupe/
