Porsche probably wasn't too happy with Tanner mentioning the power loss. That might have persuaded a few potential buyers to go look at the 458 Italia. Or wait for a track version of the 458.
The show mentioned that the entire production run is already sold out so I'm sure Porsche will be a little less unhappy about that.
