This Website is dedicated to Porsches.

A Porsche is designed and built with one purpose in mind. It is an extension of the driver, to create the ultimate driving experience. Porsches are built for those who have a passion for driving.

Ferdinand and Ferry Porsche circa 1930 Ferdinand Porsche was born in Maffersdorf, Northern Bohemia in 1875. He had a long history of working with cars, starting his early work in with electric cars. Working for Lohner, he built the first hybrid vehicle with a gasoline engine used to charge the batteries for the electricly driven wheels. In the 1920's he moved to Stuttgart, Germany to design cars for Daimler Motors. In the 1930's he designed the air cooled Volkswagen. As the years progressed, he developed a reputation for being able to design racing cars that dominated their class.

Ferdinand, (Ferry) Porsche was born in Wiener Neustadt, Austria on September 16, 1909. He shared in is Father's passion for cars and also gained mechanical engineering knowledge from his father. After the Second World War, he had moved to Gmund Austria to open a small shop.

Porsche Nr 1 356 In 1948, he designed and built the Porsche 356, the first car with the Porsche name. It was an air cooled, mid engined, silver roadster with an all aluminum body. It can still be seen at the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, Germany, the home of Porsche. Since that time, Porsches have been built to be an extension of the driver. Each new model has been designed to go faster and better than the one before.

The race track is where Porsche tests its engineering and innovative technology. Porsche success is obvious when you look at the results of the gruelling 24 Hours of Le Mans race held each June. Porsche is so dominant in this race, that since 1970, Porsches have achieved the overall win 19 times. In June of 2017, the winning Porsche covered 3101.5 miles or 4991.4 km in 24 hours, an average speed of 129.2 mph or 209 kph. Its reputation is earned at the track.
