This  came up just a couple weeks back.  If I remember correctly it is  
basically true, but was totally UN-official.  The car belonged to one  of 
egineers, not to the company.  Porsche never owned or  officially used a 
Corvair. If you want the details check the archives, it  was very recent.. 
August or September for sure.

That would be me.  A German friend was a factory trained Porsche  mechanic 
(as in Zuffenhausen factory) who told me about it later (he emigrated  to 
the US and, became a Permanent Resident, and had the VW shop for  decades).
