    I believed Webber was taken to Weissach directly, as I didn't see him at the factory. We left the airport almost together. He drew the e-hybrid car while I got the panny turbo.

    All 918s are taken to Weissach for a shake down run as part of the validation process. But I don't believe he is there to shake down a 918. Could be testing the RS though.

    are you sure about the "Porsche on demand"-rental? Can't find anything in that sense on the various sites. Could be a huge succes IMO


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    Yes, it's a new program. I see cars come and go in front of the Museum with people getting off the car and greeted by Porsche personal with a check board and was told they are doing the 'driving experience'.

    Sounds encouraging Whoopsy!  But sometimes the "final quality check" can bring delays.  All will be worth the wait!

    They are testing the 919 before 6h COTA.

    There is something compelling about starting with a clean slate. Makes me want to clean my basement and throw everything out, including years of Auto Motor und Sport, Auto Hebdo, Car and Driver, etc., etc.

    I really have to apologize on the behalf of the whole Rennteam team to you, Nick. You put so much work and passion into your thread and now this. Smiley

    Same goes to Watt and Sun's last run thread. I feel so bad for you guys, I don't even know where to start with my apologies. Smiley

    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    Great summary. Couldn'we have that already in the beginning?


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    He left out the part where his wife, overhearing one of his phone calls, asked him, "What have you done now?" I believe she was in the kitchen holding a knife at the time, but he quickly pacified her by telling her the car number was the same as her birthday. Quick thinking.

    Don't worry about it. I used to be in the IT field, so I know shit WILL happen. Yes there are a lot of posts lost. But you know what, the members are still here, the stories and tales can always be told again. 

    As Nick said in the other thread, there are some forgettable comments we posted that we are glad they disappeared.

    KresoF1:

    Look what WR did at Sachsenring...

    From what I understand, he talked about lack of grip of this particular test car? And was worried, that wouldn't be able to put a record lap?

    Coincidently, this was the exact test car, which had problems to put record time at Balocco track (Auto Mag)... 


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    ...and more importantly it was not the only press fleet 918 that experinced setup problems. Bigger issue that Porsche stuff was there to assist WR but, even they were not able to fix that test car.

    Which else had problems?

    Ironically, they have power problems with the “press” cars, not customer ones. We are used to be just the opposite with other manufacturers… Smiley


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    At the beginning of the 918 program, all the test prototypes were supposed to be crushed in the end, but seems like they have changed their mind, they will be using them to test on going enhancement for the production car.

    I heard the same thing.

    Nick, I am glad that your car is running healthy.


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    So, to expect power updates? 


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    On going 'enhancement' is the exact word they used when I talked to them over the weekend. Everyone is avoiding the HP question.

    1st thing that will appear is a onboard owners' manual, it will be out in the next update. Long over due, there was no room on board to store them in the first place.

    system management between hybrid and gas, shift logic and other stuff will also be updated in the future. 

    Initially, e-mode only goes to 150km/hr before engine starts, right now the car goes to 155km/hr. So I am guessing testing the limit on the front e-motor is also part of the ongoing testing.
