About Porsche

Founded in 1931 by Dr. Ferdinand Porsche, Porsche AG has developed an internationally heralded reputation as manufacturers of high-performance sports cars based in Zuffenhausen, Germany. Beginning with its initial 356 model and continuing on with its successor, the 911, Porsche’s design ethos is an icon all its own, from the rear-mounted six-cylinder engines to the unmistakable curvature of the roofline, the rounded headlights and purposeful ergonomics. The company’s sporting pedigree has been bolstered virtually from the outset with exceptional success stories in motorsport, where Porsche AG has reigned victorious in countless categories from the 24 Hours of Le Mans to the Paris-Dakar Rally and virtually everything in between. To this day, Porsche’s flagship 911 models are the gold standard of cutting edge engineering, equally at home on the racetrack as they are on twisty mountain roads.
