    Wazzup wit Auto Week Buyer's Guide & CGT?

    I just read through my 20SEP04 Auto Week's "Sport & Sporty Car Buyers Guide".

    Under the Porsche heading in the Carrera GT section, I find the following:

    Highlights: Porsche's supercar receives a glass wind blocker, seat-height-adjustment control, additional thigh cushioning and a battery trickel charger. The Carrera GT's chassis number is now imprinted on the center console.

    The last seems like it's not news if they mean xxxx out of 1500 number and not the VIN.

    Wazzup wit da rest?

    Re: Wazzup wit Auto Week Buyer's Guide & CGT?

    It seems that the "glass wind blocker" has been around since the beginning as well:

    Hmmmm ...

    It's your impression, Mike, that Auto Week was presenting this information as the latest changes/additions to the CGT? As if these were changes to the MY 2005 Carrera GT?

    If that's the case, it would seem they are just way off base. Someone's not keeping up.

    I don't read their magazine. Do they have a history of inaccurate reporting or does this seem an anomaly?

    Or ... maybe you're not the person to ask. I'll bet you do some advertising there. Is anyone else a regular reader of Auto Week magazine?

    Re: Wazzup wit Auto Week Buyer's Guide & CGT?

    I can't answer Mike's questions, but AW does have a history of printing inaccurate info.
