While products and technologies designed and created by Porsche now look back at more than 100 years of successful history, the first car bearing the brand name Porsche was homologated by the state government of Kärnten in Austria about 65 years ago on 8th June 1948 - the very first Porsche 356 to see the light of day. The intellectual and, indeed, spiritual "father" of the car was Professor Ferdinand "Ferry" Porsche, who died on 27 March 1998 at the age of 88.
At the 1963 Frankfurt Motor Show, the story of Porsche was continued with the world-famous 911. The Porsche 911 now looks back at the longest production run of any sports car in the world. Which explains why Porsche aficionados already speak of the "never-ending story".
