All About Porsche

Porsche has a longstanding reputation for elite vehicles and thrilling sports cars. However, the brand has expanded into family luxury SUVs and other stylish models. When you own a Porsche model, you're part of an elite family.

How It All Started

Ferdinand Porsche founded the company in 1931 with two other owners and a main office in Stuttgart. In the beginning, the company helped with development work and consulting, but no cars were built under the company name. Ironically, one of the first vehicles the company was assigned to build was what would become the Volkswagen Beetle.

After World War II, Ferdinand's son, Ferry, designed his own car. Those first models were built in Austria in a little sawmill. The prototype would become the 356. The company to produce this car was Porsche Konstruktionen Gesmbh, which was founded by Ferry and a partner. His father's company later took over production of the car, but this model is often referred to as the first Porsche.

While the 356 took several design elements from the Volkswagen Beetle, it began to establish its own look in the mid-1950s. However, Porsche models in general have often followed that air-cooled rear-engine design, which is not seen in many other manufacturers' models.

It was in 1964 that the next air-cooled, rear engine sports car came to life in the Porsche 911 with a six-cylinder engine. The body design team was led by Ferry's oldest son. This model has become the signature of the Porsche brand, successful both on the racetrack and on the road.

Porsche made a major change in 1972 when it became a public company, and a new executive board was formed with people outside the Porsche family. Several family members left the company at this time to work on their own projects.

Models Today

The company continued to develop new models, and in 2002, the Cayenne was introduced. It has become one of the most popular models in the lineup as a mid-size luxury SUV. Porsche is still best-known for its sports cars. Along with the 911, the Boxster roadster and Cayman, a coupe, have drawn loyal followers. Porsche has also created a successful luxury sedan with the Panamera.

The Macan is the company's SUV crossover while the Taycan is four-door coupe. This coupe is unique in that it is an all-electric model.

Porsche has been given the title as "the most prestigious automobile brand" by the Luxury Institute in New York. The automobiles are more than just a sign of wealth and luxury. Studies show that they are also among the most reliable vehicles in the market. A study done in 2011 showed that over 97 percent of the vehicles from the past 25 years were still on the road.

When it comes to the design of the Porsche today, quality reigns supreme. Much of the work is still done by hand to create a luxurious feel while providing the dependability that is expected.
