Great post! Reminds me of an article I once saw about factory testing of the 996 turbos up in Alaska I think. The factory thought most owners would not do that, but the car car should be able to perform under those conditions if called upon to do so. Gotta love that Porsche mentality. I doubt they saw any Lambo's or Ferrari's out there.
I remember seeing a similar article on the Porsche site. Amazing sequence of pictures -- whole rows of Turbos out in absolutely blistering cold for many thousands of miles. The crazy part is that they engineer the "worst case cold" scenario just like they engineer pretty much everything else on the car. Anybody feel like questioning the quality of our cars?
