Made by Hand | Porsche 356

Dec 13th, 2009 | Categories: Automobiles, Cars, Germany | by Michael Williams

A nice follow up to the Porsche 914 factory photos from 1972, this five part video from the 1960s takes you through the entire build process of the famed German sports car. Those photos made their way to all sorts of different sites and a few different forums, which is how I found these videos. If you aren’t into metal work, it might be worth it to skip ahead to part II. But the remaining four videos are definitely worth part of your Sunday. Enjoy!

    Outstanding. I drive a ’63 B – signal red – so I love to see these films. And thanks for having the good taste to appreciate them as well.

    Beautiful, aren’t they? I ran these videos last week as part of a series of sportscar factory imagery. More recently, I dug up some shots of OSCA, Maserati, and Ferrari preparing cars for the 1953 Mille Miglia – http://thechicaneblog.com/2009/12/13/factories-at-work-preparing-for-the-1953-mille-miglia/

    It’s always inspiring to see cars built by hand.
