Overview of Porsche

In 1900, a vehicle called the Lohner-Porsche electric car was unveiled at the Paris Auto Show. This was the origin of Porsche, more than a century ago. It was the first in a long line of vehicles, leading up to the current year that would bear the Porsche name. This first car showcased was equipped with wheel hub motors which were designed by a young German engineer named Ferdinand Porsche. His legendary career would continue into the 1920’s when he developed the super charged sports car Mercedes SS and SSK . And then into the 1930’s when he designed and produced the first Volkswagens. Ferry, Ferdinand’s son (Also named Ferdinand) was the one who after the war, envisioned a car that would carry the Porsche insignia. Introduced in the late 1940’s, the result was the Porsche 356. This essentially was Ferry’s two-seat version of the VW Beetle, which had been designed by his Father. Since it proved to be so popular, it was sold into the early 1960’s. After this, Ferry released the 500 Spyder which was produced through the 1950’s. The 911 sport coupe debuted in 1964. Originally thought as a four-seat follow-up to the 356, Ferry decided to make it a two-seater with an air-cooled rear engine, just like the VW beetle, but larger, with more interior room and more power than the 356. This formula proved to be an instant hit. A turbo-charged version of the 911 was introduced in 1970’s and the 911 continues in production up to this day. After the introduction of the 911, other models were also released. For example, the 912 in 1965 as a replacement of the 356. In an attempt of making this car more affordable, it was built in the 911’s platform but used the 356’s four-cylinder engine. The 914 mid-engine sports car replaced the 912 in the late 1960s. Also produced for a short run in the late 1980s was the high-performance, all-wheel-drive 959, which was a precursor of the Carrera. The 924 and the 928 followed in the 1970s, while the 944 made its debut in 1982. The 968 was introduced in 1992 and was actually a continuation of the 944, which in turn, was a continuation of the 924. In 1997, The two-seat and open-top Boxster roadster was added to Porsche's lineup. The Cayenne SUV made its debut in 2003
