    Porsche R&D and testing halted - Please confirm

    I would like for our German friends to confirm this please.

    I was talking to one of my buddies back in Houston last night (he works for a Porsche dealer), he told me that due to the financial situation at Porsche and lack of funding for day to day operation all R&D and testing have been put on hold till later notice.

    His statement may have some merit but is it really true that they have halted R&D ?

    Mind you this guy have been very accurate in the past regarding products but this one seems validation.

    Any thoughts?

    Re: Porsche R&D and testing halted - Please confirm

     Based on what I heard very recently I could well imagine that certain development activities have been suspended. Don't know, however, whether all R&D has been put to a halt.


    Re: Porsche R&D and testing halted - Please confirm

    R&D on future projects will most probably be frozen as a result of the well-documented cash flow problems.

    But logically on-going development for products in the pipeline for release in the next year or so, like FL Turbo, RS, Panamera V6 and Diesel, and Cayenne.2 cannot be halted. These projects will bring in cash imminently.

    I wonder however, if they'll  force WW and HH to return their bonuses to enrich PAG's liquidity.
