Pimples and dimples.

Ever wondered why all 911’s pre-964, have this sort of pimples on the outer edges of the headlights glass ?
It turns out that during development, the engineers couldn’t get rid of some condensation appearing on the edges of the glass, harmless but not pleasing to the eye.
Enter Herr Piëch, master overseer, who decreed “if we can’t get rid of them, we’ll adopt them”. And so, the pimples were born.
