There's an important "Easter Egg" hidden in the latest video from Porsche for the 918 RSR. A small bit of handwritten script proclaiming "im CAD hat's passt" below the RSR badge. What does it mean?


As explained in the video, the process of building a working concept vehicle requires designing and fitting thousands of parts. A process made easier by computers and Computer Aided Drafting (CAD).

Apparently, when the people who built the car machined it and attempted to put it together they discovered not everything fit correctly, to which the confronted engineers constantly replied "im CAD hat's passt!"

In English it roughly translates to: "It fits in CAD!"

This totally explains German "precision," doesn't it?
