  • WOW Amazing New German Transparent Car Factory.

    Germans at their best . Want to see why the Germans have a positive trade balance, in spite of paying workers some of the highest wages in the world?
    Watch this: It is truly incredible..

    Thank you. that is impressive. I have toured at least five auto factories, probably the closest to this modern one was BMW.

      Incredible! I would think that the mood of the employees would be uplifted by the natural light, until they see a flock of birds smack into the glass panels and die. I would assume that all that glass would make the building not very energy efficient (more energy consumed to cool in the summer and more energy consumed to heat in the winter). The storage silo is very interesting also, like something out of a science-fiction movie.

        We saw this here 11 years ago: https://forum.studebakerdriversclub....ht=transparent

        And BMW's factory a few years ago as well: https://forum.studebakerdriversclub....-to-make-a-bmw

            Introduced at the 2002 Geneva Motor Show, the Phaeton was marketed worldwide. Sales in North America ended in 2006 and global sales ended in 2016.

              What impresses me most about that compared to US auto plants of the 1950s is how clean, uncluttered and organized they are. Reminds me of a tour of the Boeing 747 plant in Everett.
