Porsche: The Story Of A German Legend

For more than 60 years now, Porsche has been one of the greatest names in the automobile industry. Even before World War II, Ferdinand Porsche was one of the most important auto engineers, having created the VW Beetle, and worked with Mercedes, Auto-Union and Cisitalia. In 1948 his son, Ferry Porsche, built the first car with a Porsche badge, the soonto- be famous 356. And exactly 50 years ago, the legendary 911 was presented - still today an icon of a sports car, one of the most famous automobiles in the world. But Porsche also got its fame from racing: the great 917 - built by Ferdinand Piëch, the grandson of Ferdinand Porsche - in the 70s, the 956/962 which won the 24 Hours of Le Mans more often than any other car. And then there were the Porsche drivers: James Dean, Steve McQueen, etc... Today, Porsche is stronger than ever and a wonderful story to tell.
