    Carrera GT.Leipzig Factory



    Re: Carrera GT.Leipzig Factory

    Hey, thanks CF. Nice shot.

    1) Did you take that yourself?

    2) How many CGTs are in the factory at any one time (estimate)? The reason for this question is to imagine how many color combinations one might be able to see in-the-flesh during a factory visit next Spring.

    Re: Carrera GT.Leipzig Factory

    Wow...nice shot! I wonder how the camera man took this picture if it's not officially from Porsche? We weren't allowed cameras in there.

    I believe what you're seeing there is stage 7, the very last stage of assembly. They install all the carpeting in the trunk and do all the final prep work there. This yellow one you guys see should be the last pre-production car...car #7. It was being built while we were there. We saw the yellow outer shell and I guess the chassis was being made.

    To answer your question Mike...by the time you're there, Porsche should be able to build 2.2 Carrera GTs a day. So at the minimum, you should see 2 cars there I assume, if not more depending on where the cars go once they are completed. The very first few months of production, they were planning to build 1.2 or 1.7 CGTs a day...something like that, I forgot the number...increasing to 2.2 a day once they have everything in check. I really don't know how many colors you will see...but most CGTs in the US seem to be ordered in the CGT Silver. (I'm not joking, don't ask me how I know ).

    Cheers,

    Whos car is it? I want to be his friend.
    Looks like it has the sport supspension kit (-10mm), and sport exhaust.

    Oh man seriously,
    Now I believe that this car is made by humanman hands.
    Too bad that you can not ajust the seat-back, because if I were in the position tu buy this beauty, I would want also to sleep in it.

    Re: Carrera GT.Leipzig Factory

    No I didn't.
    No cameras allowed there.

    Re: You want pictures? Here are CGT pictures from production!

    It looks a lot better in silver.

    Re: You want pictures? Here are CGT pictures from production!

    Nice pictures thanks.

    I wonder whose car is this yellow one they're working on. Anyone from the board has ordered it in yellow?, could be yours.

    As far as I know, the yellow CGT on the pictures is a Porsche showcar. I suppose some of the people joining the CGT event in Leipzig a few weeks ago, actually saw this car.

    Re: You want pictures? Here are CGT pictures from production!

    They were building a Yellow one while I was there on the 1st of September,probably the one in the pictures.
    That was the last one of the 7 show/press cars that they were going to build before the production started.
    This car is going to the States later since it has a US spec.

    Re: You want pictures? Here are CGT pictures from production!

    Yeah...like I posted before...this should be the yellow one we saw while we were there...car #7, the last pre-production car before real production begins. Yikes...that means it took Porsche close to 2 months to complete this car...since we were there Aug. 25th.

    Cheers,

    These photos were not taken recently.

    Only F-cars look good in yellow?

    Re: You want pictures? Here are CGT pictures from production!

    I would take it in black.

    Re: You want pictures? Here are CGT pictures from production!

    Oh no! Did you order yours in yellow? If so, sorry in more ways than one.

    BTW the Ferrari yellow looks good on all Ferrari's. However for the sake of change, today (my dealer called last night told me to come in and spec the car for a Jan. build date) I am placing my order for a new Spider and it will be in red. I had considered Grigo Alloy but changed my mind because my TT Cab. coming within two weeks will be a similar color.

    Re: You want pictures? Here are CGT pictures from production!

    why does it matter for your spyder what color your tt cab is? isn't the spyder replacing the tt cab?

    Re: You want pictures? Here are CGT pictures from production!

    It may and it may not. Keeping my options open.

    Re: You want pictures? Here are CGT pictures from production!

    you're thinking about selling the spyder instead? that's nearly as shocking as when you bought a cayenne :-)

    Re: No, I will not sell the Spider at this time. When its

    replacement is offered, I will buy it and have my dealer sell the 360 for me.

    Re: No, I will not sell the Spider at this time. When its

    how does that relate to the tt cab then? surely you aren't going to keep both.

    Ramp-up problems at Liepzig?

    It seems Porsche is having some ramp-up problems with the Carrera GT. They originally planned to assemble 500 units per year (fiscal August to July) but it seems this year they will only make 300. They say, they will therefore produce 600 Carrera GT next fiscal year (04/05) and again 600 in 05/06 to make it up to 1,500 units.

    So you may not get yours ontime....

    Re: Ramp-up problems at Liepzig?

    If this a rumor, or (semi-)official and reliable info?... 300 cars instead of 500 for the firs year makes quite a difference!...

    Re: Ramp-up problems at Liepzig?

    It's not a rumor ..... it's the truth a highly ranked manager at Porsche AG gave me that info.
