Porsche AG

Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, usually shortened to Porsche AG, is a German automobile manufacturer specializing in high-performance sports cars, SUVs and sedans. Porsche AG is headquartered in Stuttgart, and is owned by Volkswagen AG, which is itself majority-owned by Porsche Automobil Holding SE.

The company was founded by Ferdinand Porsche in 1931, with main offices in the centre of Stuttgart. Porsche initially offered motor vehicle development work and consulting, but did not build any cars under its own name. An assignment from the German government to design a car for the people, resulted in the Volkswagen Beetle, one of the most successful car designs of all time. During world war II, over 50000 of a military version of the Volkswagen Beetle, the Kübelwagen, was produced and Porsche also produced several designs for heavy tanks during the war.

Porsche has always had a close relationship with VW and later the Volkswagen Group because the first Volkswagen Beetle was designed by Ferdinand Porsche. Porsche’s current lineup includes the 911, Boxster, Cayman, Panamera, Cayenne, Macan, and the 918.
