There is beautiful simplicity in mechanical assembly. This is a process that absolutely must be done the exact same way every time, and there must be no variations in quality, and no parts of the process may be skipped or glazed over. Porsche has exacting specifications for their engines, and are quite particular about how the end result runs, drives, and feels. This is a dance that these workers have done literally hundreds of times, and they have it down to a science. There is beauty in the every day. There is beauty in the act of assembling a brand new 911 engine up from nothing.
From start to finish, you can tell that Porsche's engine builders are given the proper tools to work efficiently and quickly, but most importantly, to a very high level of exactitude. It's totally mesmerizing, and definitely worth watching.
