The Porsche Factory: 1972

One of my favorite eras of the 911, and seeing this many together is a real treat. I love that the Porsche factory still has a bit of grime to it, not like the current photography you see of the facility with the line workers in white lab coats and the highly polished floors. This is no operating room, this is a sportscar shop.

    I was at the factory in the late ’80s and it didn’t look much different. In the engine shop I watched from the sidewalk through a window as a technician built a V8 for a 928. Fun.

    Great stuff, Terry. I’ve always loved the 928. I think history has given it a bad rap. The bright side is that you can usually pick them up quite cheaply.
