Ferdinand Porsche an office for ‘engineering and consultation on and vehicle design’ in Stuttgart on 25, and worked for such renowned as Wanderer, Zьndapp and NSU.

In its year, Porsche’s office a six-cylinder midrange saloon and a new power unit for German car Wanderer based in the city of This was followed by a swing for Horch-Werke in Zwickau and an air-cooled radial engine developed on of Phдnomen Werke in Zittau and for use in trucks.

Working on behalf of GmbH, the Engineering Office developed a small and compact car with its engine positioned at the a central tube frame and the upfront of the rear axle, was to the way for the Volkswagen Beetle destined to later. A further milestone in the of the automobile was the torsion bar suspension patented by Porsche and featured for decades as state-of-the-art technology in car production.

The company Cisitalia entrusted KG now under the management of Ferdinand son Ferry with a number of development contracts. Apart a small tractor and a water the company developed and built the Type 360 Grand Prix car as well as a two-seater mid-engined all drive sports car. See for more detail.



The 356 is the sports car to bear the Porsche based on the Type 64 Berlin-Rome car. ‘No. 1’ is road in June. Only one month the lightweight mid-engine roadster its first class victory at the Stadtrennen. Porsche No 1 was a mid-engined and was completed and homologated in the Austrian of Gmьnd. The engine displaced cc and developed maximum output of 35 bhp (26 The first few 356 coupйs are made of alloy. See here for more

This marked the birth of the sports car brand, with of the rear-engined coupй and cabriolet of the 356 starting in the second half of After returning to Stuttgart in Porsche began regular production of the 356, with a production volume of some units by the year 1965.

To name only the important innovations, the 911 receives a 2195-cc power unit for the model year, introducing a new and performance league: 911 T (125 kW), 911 E (155 bhp/114 911 S (180 bhp/133 kW). Sportomatic is available as an option.

The 912 is replaced by the two-seater mid-engine VW 914 available in two versions: as the 914/4 a four-cylinder Volkswagen engine cc, 80 bhp/59 kW) and as the 914/6 with a Porsche power unit cc, 110 bhp/81 kW). Particularly the four cylinder becomes a success.

In 1971, Porsche’s division with its construction, and design departments moved to the new development centre 15 miles of Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen. Apart from a test track, Weissach became the home of further installations such as a wind a crash test facility, the emissions test centre, and a range of drivetrain test and dynamometers serving for both developments and customer assignments.

The Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 (2687 cc, 210 kW) and the Porsche 2.8 Carrera RSR (2806 cc, 300 221 kW) pave the way for further growth. mainly for motor racing, new models introduce a clearly aerodynamic body feature for the time: the ducktail rear on the engine compartment lid. The 914 receives extra power, now a larger four-cylinder from VW cc, 100 bhp/74 kW) helping the small to remain a genuine best


Following the plant in summer the new model range significant modifications in body the bumpers now complying with US and featuring impact absorbers at side.

The Turbo becomes larger and even powerful (3299 cc, 300 bhp/221 with an intercooler. The rear changed its looks over the Turbo. The brakes were cross drilled items the 917 racing car (a good way to spot a Turbo), and a boost gauge is into the rev counter.

Sales of the 924 at a good level, the 911 is a stable as before, and demand for the Turbo as as the 928 continues to develop positively. now on the 911 bears the model name 911 SC.


Output of the 911 increases to 188 bhp/138 kW. The 924 Turbo also close to this figure, at 170 kW. With its technical features unchanged, the 928 sees an increase in and sales, the 924 remaining Porsche’s seller.

On goes the trend to more power and performance, the 924 now featuring a 177 bhp/130 kW power In 1981 the engine ran on high 98 fuel (earlier it ran on 92 octane) and its HP to 204. In addition to the power the fuel economy got much The 911 Turbo remains unchanged. At the Motor Show Porsche a concept Turbo Cabriolet four-wheel drive).



Porsche extends the by introducing the 944 based on the 924 but featuring wider wheel arches and a Porsche engine (2479 cc, 163 kW) basically speaking half the in the 928. The new model has a clear on sales of the 924, which to go down for the first time.

The new generation of the 911 comes the in-house code designation Introduction of the new model starts the 911 Carrera 4 featuring four-wheel The 964 series is available first as a its six-cylinder boxer engine double ignition, plus size and power (3600 cc, 250 184 kW). The old series remains in with the 911 Speedster, strictly a with an extra-small windscreen.

The 944 comes with a larger (2681 cc) and more power bhp/121 kW) and is joined by the 944 Turbo bhp/184 kW). The four-valve unit of the 944 is increased in size and to 2990 cc, 211 bhp/155 kW. The 944 S2 is available as a coupй and cabriolet, the 944 Turbo an all-new five-speed gearbox.

The first all-new 911 came in at a time of a global economic which undoubtedly dented success.
