Hi,

I am just wondering why Porsche is not rated (for any model) in EuroNCAP or some other official rating organization?

How would we know how it compares to oner vehicles?

Anyone any thoughts on this?

Thanks,
Gorjan

The crash test may not come. Below is a link to a long winded story as to why. The short version is in this quote from the article. "The Euro NCAP pays for some of the cars it tests and allows manufacturers to “sponsor” certain other models. NHTSA and IIHS, meanwhile, make a point of buying every car they test, which makes the return on a Porsche review pretty crummy considering the limited number of buyers."

Thank you! I had no idea on this fact.

It didn't take long for someone to sue. I guess this is at least the second wrongful death suit where a Porsche Carrera GT is involved.

Give me a break, that car didn't crash at 55 mph :eek:.
