Watching the Monday night game and going over some stuff...... With a good single malt. Whatever happens to the Saints??

Looking at the sticker I noticed a few things.


Sticker says on the upper left "built in Osnabrück".

ok.

On the right side it says "final assembly point: Stuttgart" ?

Also, 3% parts content US/Canada, 63% Germany, where is the rest coming from?

:taunt:

Later,
Andy

I pretty sure the rest are built by elves who quit their jobs at the North Pole and now reside in the Bermuda triangle and who whittle away at the various components while gently humming Flight of the Valkyries. I also hear if you leave your keys under your pillow they will sometimes visit you at night and you will find your car with higher mileage in the garage the next morning.

This sounds like a car with some real identity issues.

My understanding is the first year run was (2013 and 2014 models, built in 2012 and 2013) where assembled in Stuttgart. Everything past that was in other German plants. Why? Idk, but my guess is to cut costs or increase production due to higher demand. The parts are all the same...he only difference is where they part got put together. Honestly Look at videos of the Stuttgart plant...looks kinda cheap compared to other manufacturers...looks like stuff is done more by hand than machine.

Single Malt sounds great. As far as the Saints go, that was supposed to happen, they were playing the RAVENS.:cheers:

Mexico, Japan, USA, Germany, whatever. It's a Global Vehicle.

Most of the other parts come from Hungary and France.

Also built in Osnabruk -- a plethora of Karman cars - cabrios for VW, Sciroccos, Karman Ghia (of course) and White 968's (go figgur) -- A fine place of origin with loads of heritage.

Could someone explain this meme to me? Is Osnabruck a bad thing?
It's probably a good thing, given that Osnabruk is the newest factory line, it's likely to have the most modern facilities etc. This could mean that your car will have fewer quality issues.

For the purist, the only thing wrong with Osnabruk is that it's "not Valhalla" (I mean "Not Stuttgart" --even though other Porsche's have been built in Osnabruk before).

If you hear Wagner when you close your eyes, you may be concerned, For the rest of us, it's a non-issue.

One problem that Porsche manufacturing has is that the Stuttgart , Zuffenhausen plant has a very small footprint. Its hard to expand the facilities there with out lots of disruption.

On the tour I took this fall the guide mentioned that in the 60's Porsche management thought of leaving Zuffenhausen and moving out of town. They decided not to when they realized that the workers would not have public transport to get to work.

Yeah, he's just kidding around but it's about played out now.
lol. It's only still amusing if you've got an S build. ;)

But yeah... the bottom line is that it doesn't matter. If not for the VIN number, there'd be nothing to tell one from the other. I made the graphic because I thought it was funny that the entire time I was planning for and then ordering my car, it was just assumed it would be an Osnabruck build. Then, out of the blue, I seem to have got one of the very first Stuttgart GTS's. So of course, from that moment on, Osnabruck cars aren't worth the sheet metal they're stamped from. It's just a running joke and this thread played right into it. :D
