such were the high standards at Neckarsulm that each 924 engine produced would be inspected by Porsche's own personnel at the plant and receive this stamp, "Endkontrolle," or "final inspection," before it moved on down the line for its eventual destination, the chassis.
and here he is, the man with the rubber stamp. the integrity of the plant's craftsmanship and Porsche's reputation rests on his shoulder because once he gives a lump its tattoo, it's expected to run better than an Omega Speedmaster. although the stamping is removed at the end of the 924's production cycle, one marker of assured quality remains in place, the Porsche crest on its hood.
