Porsche is a German automobile manufacturer founded in the city of Stuttgart in 1931 by German Engineer Ferdinand Porsche. Initially, Ferdinand joined Benz to help design the first Mercedes sports car after Daimler merged with Benz in 1926 Ferdinand couldn’t cope with the new company so in 1930 he quit and decided to go independent that’s when he founded the company initially naming it Dr. ing. h. c. F. Porsche GmbH. The company didn’t initially make vehicles instead they would provide motor vehicle development work and consulting. One of the company’s first projects was to help the German government design the “car for the people” which was Volkswagen this ended up in the Volkswagen beetle. After this Ferdinand designed his own car prototype called the Porsche 64 which had several components from the beetle. Porsche is now one of the biggest sports/luxury car companies in the world so large that its revenue is bigger than Lamborghini!
