                That's the frame for the MF3-Roadster.

                You can see the two production lines on the second picture.
                The left one is for the MF3 (I guess they will use it for the newly presented Roadster MF4 as well) and the right one is for the GTs

                Thank you for the comments!
                I really enjoyed it and can only recommend it to anyone.
                Yesterday (and today) there is a so-called "Spring Gala" at the factory so nobody actually worked. I'm planning to attend a factory-tour during regular working time, should be interesting.

                  Whos the Architect of that building? Looks very much like a Frank Gery.

                    I can imagine the conversation between Wiesmann and the people in charge of designing the building.

                    'How can we make this factory incredibly awesome?'
                    'I know! Let's build part of it in the shape of a salamander Gecko!'

                    It deserves a spot in the awesome thread.

                      The heraldic animal of Wiesmann is a Gecko, not a Salamander, hence the factory is shaped like a Gecko.

                      @ Topic: nice factory, I'm jealous, too. I think it deserves a place in the Awesome-Thread as well.

                        I think its too ordinary to be a Gehry one. The lizard thing is just Wiesmann's logo built into it, but the main part of the building is just too boring

                        But still an amazing building! Thanks for sharing!

                                Hehe, yes, it's my father's cam. I normally use my Minolta Dynax(Maxxum) 7D or my cell phone.

                                The color is a bit botched, it's actually more like grey. Had to use the flash.

                                      Man that looks like a really nice place to work! Looks nicer than the GM SUV plant I visited in arlington Cool pictures. How do you tour it? Do they have special days or can you go by at any time?

                                        This was their "Spring Gala" but it seems that you can tout it during regular working hours as well.
                                        On their homepage it says:
                                        Visit the "glass manufactory".
