If you’ve been on a tour of a modern car factory, this old video about Porsche is going to make you giggle. If you’ve got even a basic awareness of modern health and safety protocols, it’ll blow your mind. Either way, it’s super-interesting and a great look into quality car building in yesterday’s world.
This is a video tour showing the build process for the Porsche 356. Think Megafactories, 1950’s style. While everything’s basically done by hand there are still some extraordinary machines and the commitment to quality is evident throughout.
The video goes for 40 minutes. If you’ve got time, I thoroughly recommend it. If you just want to see something amazing, skip to the 34 minute mark to watch the installation of the transmission and rear axles. It’s a real knee-slapper!
