900 Porsche 918 “Buyers” & Made By Hand Videos

Here’s a couple of things I came across today worth mentioning.

First is a Bloomberg post claiming that Porsche has 900 potential buyers for the Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid. “I’m confident that we will soon reach the threshold of 1,000,” was the comment Wolfgang Duerheimer (Porsche’s development chief) mentioned in an interview at the Beijing Auto Show. “We need 1,000 seriously interested people to make a sound business case.”

Here’s for hoping another 100 people step up to the plate! [Via BusinessWeek.com]

Second, John over at PorschePurist.com posted a show called Made By Hand last week on his blog. It’s a 40 minute or so show from probably 50 years ago showing how Porsche made each 356 by hand. I haven’t gotten through the entire thing yet, but so far it has been a great watch. It’s broken up into 5 videos and you can watch each from his blog.
