PORSCHE Car Design History - Automobile manufacturer


The automobile engineer Ferdinand Porsche, who had more than a thousand patents to his name, played an important part in the development of airplane engines and racing cars, and the construction of tanks for the Wehrmacht. In the 1920s he was appointed chief engineer at Mercedes-Benz in Stuttgart, where he later set up his own engineering workshop which among other things designed the Volkswagen. Porsche was chief of operations at the Wolfsburg plant where Volkswagens were made, and at the end of the war he was interned by the Allies.

After his release he built the first car with his son Ferry Porsche. The Porsche 356 was a sports car that was reminiscent of the VW in that it had the same four-cylinder boxer engine as the Volkswagen, and like it the engine was rear-mounted. First produced as a convertible and later as a hardtop, this model was far from being a powerful sports car, developing forty bhp and with a maximum speed of eighty-seven mph (one hundred and forty km/h), but the body was very elegant. It was developed in workshop of Erwin Komenda, a master of restrained streamlining who had been in charge of sheet metal and design techniques at Porsche since the VW Beetle. Komenda designed this new style of closed coupe, whose fastback became the embodiment of the sports car.

Komenda and Ferdinand "Butzi" Porsche, the founder's grandson, continued this tradition with the next model, the 911. Particularly attractive were the sloping bonnet with its characteristic "frog eye" headlights, and the curve running from the top edge of the windscreen to the rear bumper, combined with a straight waistline. While it retained the stylistic features of the original Porsche model from a functional and technical point of view it was more like the BMW 1500. The 911 became the foundation stone of a brand identity created by design, an advantage that was not always appreciated. Porsche's attempts to distance itself from its own legend during the 1970s and 1980s brought the company to the edge of disaster. Neither the more modern 924 model, a "people's Porsche" developed with VW, nor the 928 fulfilled expectations.

What for over twenty years was perceived by the company as a straitjacket is now recognized as a decisive market advantage. The typical Porsche features are apparently timeless. During the 1990s, the famous company became highly profitable again with nearly forty people now working in the design department on further developments of the long-running 911. These developments included the 911 GTI, a powerful combination of sports and racing car, put forward by the in-house designer Anthony R. Hatter. Chief designer Harm M. Lagaay was equally proud to present the new Boxster which enabled Porshe to establish a second independent range of models. This model, based on the legendary 550 Spyder, has an excellent engine and is also the fastest ragtop in the world.
