Embark on a journey through time and engineering with this episode of “Central Octane” as CJ Wilson of Porsche Fresno takes us under the hood of the legendary Porsche 911.

Since its inception in 1964, the 911 has etched its name into the annals of automotive royalty while continually evolving.

With CJ as our guide, we’ll explore the craftsmanship and innovative spirit that fuel 911’s legacy —from its dominance on the racetrack to its allure on the open road.

Pulling Back the Curtain on Making a Porsche

However, this episode isn’t just a story about a car; it’s a testament to Porsche’s relentless pursuit of perfection. CJ pulls back the curtain on the unique assembly process that marries cutting-edge automation with the touch of skilled artisans.

Through tales of ceramic brakes, distinctive transmissions, and the assembly line dance that brings these mechanical marvels to life, we’ll see the 911 in a new light.

But the journey doesn’t end at the factory door. We’ll also delve into what makes owning a Porsche so extraordinary, from the autobahn’s full-throttle freedom to the personalized experience of European delivery.

CJ shares his personal experiences and those of clients who’ve witnessed their Porsche’s birth, then set off across Europe, pushing their vehicles to the limits in a way only the autobahn permits.

Whether you’re a long-time Porsche enthusiast or simply a lover of stories where innovation meets tradition, this exploration of the Porsche 911 promises to ignite your passion for the art of automotive excellence.
