Comment of the Day: German Engineering Edition

Sometimes the best questions to ask are the most obvious ones. When Chris Harris asked why the new Porsche 911's door handles needed to be so complicated, he was asking what we were all thinking. What we’ve been thinking for decades.


Perhaps if Porsche were to take a bit of the Lotus ethos for a spin, the new 992 911 might not be quite so large and heavy. Simplify, etc.

Congratulations on your COTD victory For Sweden. You gave me a good chuckle, and earned a few stars along the way, too. Here’s hoping your Swedish engineered cars aren’t overly complicated. Obviously these door handles are much more complex than a twin-charged over-the-road hybrid SUV, right?
