How does Porsche ensure that every 2015 911 GT3 is properly put together and all of its systems are working properly? Well it has a huge testing facility of course. The facility is very German and very nerdy in all the ways that I love. Porsche has released a video that shows the testing facility in motion and it is amazing. Each car that comes through is fitted with special plastic body panels that are marked and padded to protect the cars, but I am sure the automaker also tests for panel inconsistencies.
While in the facility the cars have their gas tanks, and various reservoirs filled and tested, they have the wheels aligned, get a thorough visual inspection and more. Now sadly this video has no commentary so you are left to figure out what is happening on your own, but even with nothing but the hum and buzz of the dozens of machines and robots checking things over the video is fascinating to watch.
If you have ever wondered what extra steps each car goes through at Porsche to make sure it meets expected levels of quality, this is a great place to start. And no, I didn’t see a test for engine fires or missing PDK Sport buttons, so I am going to assume they got those parts worked out before they made this video.
