Very Obvious Design Flaw in $120,000 Luxury Porsche Cayenne… Can You Spot it?
Imagine spending $120,000 on a luxury car only to discover a very obvious flaw in its design – wouldn’t you be furious. At least one Porsche Cayenne owner was after he found out that the auto manufacturer actually misspelled the name of his precious car!
Even luxury cars with a six-figure price tag aren’t perfect. But when the manufacturer makes such an obvious mistake in the car’s design that literally everyone on the road can see, it is bound to make the car owner red-faced.
The mistake was pointed out by one eagle-eyed driver who was stuck bumper-to-bumper in Melbourne’s rush-hour traffic and noticed that a very popular luxury car in front of him had a very obvious flaw in its design.
The shiny black Cayenne SUV from the German automaker Porsche, which costs a whopping $120,000, looked absolutely perfect from the front and the sides. But it was one small detail on its rear that caught the attention of the driver behind it. Apparently, the manufacturer misspelled the brand name of the car written on its badge.
Porsche Speaks Out
The driver quickly took out his phone to snap a photo of the obvious spelling error which changed the name of the car from ‘Porsche’ to ‘Porshce’. It’s not clear whether the car’s owner is aware of this shocking flaw , but at least Porsche is confident that the mistake wasn’t on the company’s end. In a statement made to Daily Mail Australia, the carmaker’s spokesperson said that there was no way that the misspelling was a manufacturing error made in Porsche’s factory.
He said that the company spends a lot of time and effort on quality control and design detail so the chances that the flaw was made by the company are almost negligible. The German factory has employed an entire team which has only one job and this is to check the spelling and placement of the badging.
Attention to Detail
But the inspection doesn’t stop there. When the automobiles arrive at the dealerships in Australia, they undergo a second round of pre-delivery assessment by an unbiased inspection team. Quality control and attention to every single detail takes up a lot of resources, but the company takes it very seriously and will not compromise it for anything, the spokesperson added.
He also said that the model seen in that specific photo didn’t look relatively new, so it’s very likely that the owner is already aware of the issue since the car was probably bought a few years ago. This is the first time in Porsche’s history where a strange case of badge misspelling has come forward, but it’s highly likely that there are other cars out there with a similar flaw, but without the owner being aware of it.
So a word of warning for those who own a Porsche Cayenne: please check the spelling of the brand on the car’s badge to make sure that the manufacture didn’t make a mistake in spelling the car’s name. The last thing you want is to pay $120,000 for a Porsche that isn’t technically a Porsche!
History of Design Flaws
This isn’t the first time Porsche has come under fire for a serious design flaw. After the actor Paul Walked died in an auto accident involving his 2005 Porsche Carrera GT, his daughter decided to file a lawsuit against the automaker for a fatal design flaw that lead to her father’s death in 2013.
Meadow Rain Walker alleged that Porsche didn’t have the necessary safety system in place to prevent the crash. Her lawyer argued that the Carrera GT model has a history of mishaps and but the company has made no changes to remedy its control issues.
According to the lawsuit, the actor could have been saved if he were able to get out of seat quick enough, but after the accident, he was unable to unbuckle his seatbelt and eventually died after the car exploded.
