So I caught the Science Channel's How It's Made program a few nights ago. The program is currently showing a series called Dream Cars and features the Porsche 911 assembly plant in Stuttgart, Germany.

It made me laugh.

The voice-over narration interchangeably uses the words "V6" and "flat six" to describe the 911's engine. Here, for example, we see how "a worker fixes the gearbox to the 3.4-liter V6 engine block."

And below, in a shot clearly showing assembly of the coolant lines, we see "workers attach and align the exhaust system."

Why do all car shows have to be made by people with no interest in or knowledge of cars?
