Porsche has a history, which is very different than most automakers, but then Porsche has a reputation of not being like any other automobile. This will be very obvious once you read about the beginnings and take a look at the Porsche brochures and sales literature found here. Ferdinand Porsche in Stuttgart Germany started Porsche in 1931, however the company did not built automobiles. The company was a consulting business that did development work and engineering consulting for manufacturers. One of the first jobs that this new company took on was for the German Government that wanted a car designed for the people of Germany, which ultimately resulted in the Volkswagen Beetle.
The line between Volkswagen and Porsche was unclear, but after World War II Ferdinand was arrested for war crimes and spent 20 months in prison. His son Ferry Porsche decided to design a car, because he was unhappy with the current offerings. That first car was the 356, which were shown to German Auto dealers for pre-orders, and soon the Porsche Company was manufacturing automobiles. The relationship with Volkswagen continued and the Porsche became a subsidiary of Volkswagen. Take a look at the earlier Porsche brochures and sales pamphlets and you may see some similarities.
The Porsche 356 and the Porsche Spyder 550 made a name for Porsche in the 1950s. Both 356 and the 550 Spyder Porsche cars made race fans and enthusiasts take notice. The Porsche Company was known for performance and top quality. Then in the mid 1960s the world was introduced to the Porsche 911. A rear-engine six-cylinder sports car replaced the Spyder 550 and scored several wins at Monte Carlo. Take a look at the Porsche brochures and sales literature for the amazing specifications and designs.
Porsche set the bar high in the 1970s when they introduced a wide line of automobiles. The Porsche 911 was tweaked with a turbo and the 911 Turbo was born. Porsche also introduced the 924, which was not very popular with its four-cylinder water-cooled front mounted engine. However the powerful Porsche 928 with a V-8 power plant and four seats won over the hardcore Porsche fans. Only to be outdone by the Porsche 956 introduced in the 1980s, which became a very successful race car. Then the Porsche 959 all-wheel drive turbo hit the track won many a race. Then the Porsche 944 was introduced in 1983 and a 911 Turbo. Check out the Porsche brochures and sales pamphlets below.
When the 1990s came around things were a little rocky for Porsche. The high line market was weak and the need for new and exciting product was taking its toll. Fortunately the Porsche Boxster was introduced which was quite popular and the Spyder was reborn. Porsche continued to build what the consumer wanted and the Cayenne SUV was introduced along with the Porsche Carrera GT. Today the Porsche line is diverse as you can see from the Porsche brochures and sales booklets shown here. Porsche covers the scale from sporty to luxury as you can see in the Panamera.
