Porsche has published this video following the entire production process of a Porsche 911 GT3, from the machining of body panels to the painstaking attention to detail of 1,500 people, through to the final assembly and application of finishing touches and paintwork – in this case a rather regal Gold Bronze Metallic from Porsche ‘Paint to Sample’.
The work that goes into the paint job itself is quite remarkable. The whole car is degreased and covered with a protective anti-corrosion coat, before being primed, painted and then finally covered with a clear coat to finish.
This particular car was built for none other than racer Leh Keen, who is more than a little accustomed to sitting behind the wheel of a Porsche 911.
It’s a dramatic and eye-opening insight into the artistry and skill that goes into building one of these cars, and may well give you a new perspective to exactly how extraordinary they are.
