Went to my local dealer at lunch time to chat with the people I know. Told me to look in the back lot at a 2004 turbo that just came off the truck. Still had the plastic wrap and foam. I shot through the window as I did not have time for them to find the keys.

What is wrong with this picture?

No fair. You must have been to AB today.

Made it out of the factory and PDI like that. It is a special order and I wonder what the owner thinks about German quality. I teased them that it may not have a turbo motor. So it sits in the back lot until it can be figured out what to do.

Did it have Xenons? 

After I saw the steering wheel I walked around the car to see if I could see anything else out of order. I did check to see if it had Bi-Xenons. I think after the Sunnyvale tech session I am going back to AB and takes some more pictures and get the keys. Wonder how long that car is going to sit on the lot while Atlanta figures out what to do.

I posted the picture on the German Boxster board as a fine example of their quality control.

Kirby are you sure you did not play around with this car. :clapping:

After the morning tech session Loren and I stopped by our local dealer to check out this new 2004 turbo cab. It had been moved to the area where they prep the cars so it was unlocked.


Loren is on the right taking his own pictures. He looked and verified it does have a turbo motor.


Option sticker. Guess X50 now includes the ManTronic option at no cost.

They did dust the car for fingerprints Kirby to see if someone swaped parts from that car. Hope your prints are not on file.

I bet you want that black wheel.

The salesman Loren and I know said Atlanta is very slow getting back on issues. I'll check next week and see if it is still there.

I already offered 1/2. Might be a lot of transmission problems with that turbo.

That shift knob also bothers me. Same that we get on a Boxster S. I took out a fancy carbon one out of Josh's GT2 and I think put in a Box S standard 6 speed shift, I think.

Is that the correct shift knob for a base turbo? Because it is the same as a Boxster S or a 996.

Yep, that is the same stock shifter that is in my '04 TT coupe. I'd like to replace it and my e-brake w/ the CF units. Gert carries them, so barring some other more cost effective choice, I'll be ordering them from him.

Whatever happened to this car? This is the sort of thing that you'd think would motivate PCNA to act quickly; I mean the fact that this could even occur is just so silly. The bad PR by itself should make them want to make the problem go away, right now.
