As an owner of a Porsche, you know it’s like no other car. As
you know, Porsche is a German manufacturer that specializes in high-performance
sports cars, sedans, and SUVs. Porsche was founded in 1931 by Ferdinand Porsche,
headquartered in Stuttgart, and owned by Volkswagen. Originally, the company
only did developmental work and consulting, while not building any cars under
its own name.
In the late 1930’s, the company was assigned by the German
government to build a car for the people, which is where the Volkswagen name
originated, and the Beetle came into being as a result. The Porsche 64 is based
off components of the Beetle. During World War II, Porsche designed heavy
tanks, such as the Maus super-heavy tank and the Elefant tank destroyer. After
the second World War, Porsche’s son had to steer the company while his father
was imprisoned, but had not been tried, for war crimes. The first car sold by
Porsche was the 356 and was considered the first ever car made by the company.
The company’s logo is based off the coat of arms of the Free People’s State of
Wurttemberg, of the former Weimar Republic, which had Stuttgart as its capital.
The old design of the arms of Wurttemberg now only exist in Porsche’s logo.
