Porsche History

1940s: In 1948 the Porsche brand in Gmünd (Austria) arrived on the scene and introduced the world to Porsche's type 356 "No. 1" Roadster. After its class victory with its further enhanced 356 SL at the 24h of Le Mans, Porsche immediately gained attention throughout the world.

1950s: From 1953 onwards Porsche's next innovation was the 550 Spyder, an instant classic with a mid-engine designed for motorsport specifically and saw spectacular success. The 10,000th Porsche 356 was produced just eight years after the Typ 356 "No. 1" Roadster came out.

1960s: The Porsche 804 won the French Grand Prix and the 50,000th Porsche was built in 1962. A year later Porsche introduced the legendary 911, a fastback coupé with a 2+2 seating arrangement and two-litre, 6-cylinder 130 hp flat-six engine at the rear.

1970s: The 917 Short-Tail Coupé won at Le Mans and the first 911 Turbo was created. The 911 Turbo was the world's first production sports car with an exhaust turbocharger and pressure regulator.

1980s:  The Porsche 944 with 163 hp and a 4-cylinder engine was released and Porsche celebrated the 25th anniversary year of the 911 by introducing the newly developed 911 Carrera 4 with all-wheel drive.

1990s: The first twin-turbo engine in a 911 was released and the 1 millionth Porsche rolled off the assembly line.

2000s: Porsche displayed the high-performance Carrera GT sports car at The Louvre in Paris. While in 2002  the Porsche Cayenne was introduced, a sporty, off-road Cayenne SUV.

Today: Porsche has continued to innovate and push boundaries, focusing more on hybrid and all-electric powertrains like the one found in the innovative all-electric Porsche Taycan.
