” In 1970, I was able to tour and photograph the ‘production line’ for Porsches in Zuffenhausen, near Stuttgart. In reality, there was no production line in the modern sense. It was a complete contrast to the VW factory at Wolfsburg which was a state of the art facility mass producing the Beetle and other models (see another of my Albums).

At Porsche, the bodies were assembled by hand and then, mounted on trollies, wheeled around the factory from station to station for the next stage in assembly. The Porsche was truly ‘hand made’ in 1970.”

These amazing pics were taken by Bruce Thomas that documented the production line for Porsches in Zuffenhausen in 1970.
