  • Porsche Test Driver Dies.

    "Porsche are today mourning the loss of one their “most experienced test drivers”. The 51 year old lost his life on the Germany’s A5 autobahn between Frankfurt and Heidelberg. He was travelling in the 998 Cabriolet test mule at high speeds when his car hit the central reservation, the driver of a Panamera prototype travelling behind him managed to escape hitting the car. The accident happened at around 2.25am this morning, Friday 13th February. The car was out as part of an endurance test whereby 3 test drivers were to share a continous run of driving from around 8pm to 6am the following morning."

    R.I.P :(

          Yeah a cool job, that's part of what I hope to do eventually. Most companies look for either ex race car drivers or people with degrees in engineering to be test drivers.

                  He was asking what a central reservation is, as that is what the quote stated the driver hit.

                  The central reservation is basically the median as we know it.
