I have a couple of friends that are long time Porsche Techs and one that was a parts guy.. they told me that during there time at the dealership, when the Turbo was first released here in 76 (Turbo Carrera), The techs actually had bets going as to how many days or weeks it would be before each new Turbo came back on the hook.. wrecked!

The shortest one noted was a couple hours.. guy took delivery and two hours later the car was coming back to the dealership with the side smashed. Statement was "entered a turn and it just kept going faster, then started to slide and I let up and it slid around the other way"
