Video-Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series Factory

I just watched this entire video and was in awe of the equipment used to build these cars and the attention to detail used by the workers to assemble them. Some of the work looks boring and tedious (like stamping out the "Exclusive Series" interior dash plaque by hand) the the workers seem to take pride in their work.

I watched it this morning. The work areas all look like clean rooms. The laser etching and wheel painting is over the top. I hope people actually drive them instead of wrapping them up in plastic and storing them away.

I was wondering how they were going to get the gold to come through. I never dreamed of a laser.

Watched it. Amazing, an absolutely fascinating process to observe.

"No Substitute" is right.

Imperfection...just not an option.
