It's a principle grounded in heritage and authenticity, not politics or prejudice.

Is that a Porsche Boxster/Cayman you're driving?

Sharp eye. GT4.

I lease one with a couple of my business partners and I occasionally take it home with me (400km away from Mexico City). It's mostly for track use.

LOL people are imagining poor Mexicans with giant sombreros and flip flops half-heartedly glueing on body panels with one hand and eating a taco in the other. The reality is that this is a state of the art facility and that Mexico is full of hard working industrious EDUCATED people just like Germany and the US. And just like Germany and the US, there are lazy, uneducated, and sloppy people as well. Do you think BMW will be hiring street beggars and drug addicts to make their luxury cars?
