    Nick,

    What were you saying about it being only Ferraris that went up in flames??


    Re: Porsche 991 prototype up in flames

     Iain, I don't recall writing that. I believe you are confusing me with someone else.

    I did say that Ferrari being a small company tends to truncate it's testing compared to companies like Porsche which fortunately does extensive testing as evidence by the above test mule fire.

    I possibly am Nick so apologies.


    Re: Porsche 991 prototype up in flames

     unbelievable - after all my funny comments  on my friends 458 I will get lots of  now....

    Chinese market - what a rubbish comment.....maybe it's the cover hiding the car which caught it first....which is going to be probably the explanation no matter what  


    Re: Porsche 991 prototype up in flames

    These things happen ... IMvHO it's better that it happens now rather than when a customer is driving along in his/her own car ...

    Difference is, in the case of the 458 the test cars were the first customer cars and perhaps even beyond those.

    1. I doubt that the testdriver(s) made any comment about the car, thus I don't have a clue why somebody would say it was developed for the Chinese market (maybe it had some chinese markings on it and some genius interpreted this that way)

    2. This was a prototype, accidents like this can happen. The 458s which caught fire were final products. At least I hope so.

    I also found it odd that someone should start a story that it was "developed for the Chinese market", since the only difference would normally be a slightly different engine data mapping to better comply with local fuels or noise / consumption regulations. Smiley

    Maybe the fire was started by the constant static on the 991 Rennteam thread...


    Re: Porsche 991 prototype up in flames

    Next time one of my prototypes goes up in flames, I too will explain to the media that it was the prototype for the Chinese market!
