Unbelievable!

A water jet cuts the leather for the interiors! Robots that know where they are by magnetic guides in the floor! A robotic arm that opens the doors so another robotic arm can clear coat the interior! A whole gallon of paint used to paint the body! Watching the assembly of the flat six motor was like watching an artist create a masterpiece. If you missed this try to see it on Hulu it was incredible. It's also the same assembly line that the Boxster comes off of at about a 3:1 ratio of 911's to Boxsters.
